Wizard World: Lou Ferrigno talks The Incredible Hulk, Comic Cons

Lou Ferrigno

Actor Lou Ferrigno took some time to talk with Solzy at the Movies on Thursday night as Wizard World Chicago opened for the four-day comic con.

The actor touched on why he keeps coming back for comic con appearances and a future solo film starring The Incredible Hulk.

Thanks for joining Solzy at the Movies.

Lou Ferrigno:  You’re very welcome.

How are enjoying your time in Chicago?

Lou Ferrigno:  Great.  I got a lot of fans, a lot of women that love me.  It’s nice to be well-liked and loved.

Before Bana, Norton, and Ruffalo, you were The Incredible Hulk.  Is there a single favorite memory that you have from the series?

Lou Ferrigno:  Yeah, one time when I was in (inaudible) makeup and Cary Grant stopped by.  He said, “My name is Cary Grant — can I please take a picture with you?”  (inaudible) I was so ecstatic I couldn’t speak because he made me realize how popular the show was.

With The Avengers, it’s said that Joss Whedon got just the right amount of Hulk for a feature film where the other films haven’t quite been a success on that front.  Would you like to a stand-alone movie again?

Lou Ferrigno:  Yes (Editor’s Note: I’ve played this 10 times now and still can’t get it transcribed.  If you’ve got it figured out, please let me know)

You keep coming back for convention after convention after convention.  What keeps you coming back?

Lou Ferrigno:  It keeps me alive.  It keeps me busy.  It keeps me connected with my fans.  I have a good time and appreciate the support.  I love Wizard World.

Alright, thank you.

Lou Ferrigno:  It was really nice meeting you.

You, too.
