Lou Ferrigno Jr., known colloquially as “The Son of the Incredible Hulk”, is currently doing promotional and press work for his upcoming film, Dreamcatcher. Dreamcatcher is a mystery-horror film written and directed by Jacob Johnston that will be available On Demand and Digital from March 5th. Lou Ferrigno Jr. is among the cast of the movie and we managed to catch him during his busy schedule for a quick chat in which he has revealed several interesting details about the movie, his career and his personal life.
Among the topics discussed was his involvement in CW’s Stargirl TV series, one of the many active TV shows based on characters created by DC Comics. Stargirl was created by Geoff Johns, and is currently filming its second season, scheduled to air sometime in 2021. The first season of the show consists of 13 episodes and it has received positive reviews from critics. Although focusing on Stargirl, the show also features a lot of other DC Comics characters, both superheroes and supervillains alike.
As far as Lou Ferrigno Jr. is concerned, he has a guest role on the show as Rex Tyler, a.k.a. Hourman, a lesser-known, but quite interesting DC superhero. Ferrigno Jr. has so far appeared in two episodes of the show, the “Pilot”, which aired on May 18, 2020, and the fifth episode “Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite”, which aired on June 15, 2020.
Ferrigno’s character was received quite well by critics and fans and, hearing rumors about his return to the show, we have decided to ask Mr. Ferrigno himself about his future appearances on the show, along with some of his other projects.
FH: Could you tell us a bit more about your future plans and projects?
Lou Ferrigno Jr.: [laughter] Yeah, yeah, I mean… I can tell you what I’ve done and I’d love to tell you what I will be doing, but… um… I… I just finished… um… I shot a couple of episodes of S.W.A.T. I shot a number of [episodes] this season but there’s a couple that are still yet to come out; S.W.A.T.’s worldwide, season four… um… I just got back from Atlanta shooting the second season of Stargirl on the CW; I play Hourman, the superhero.
FH: Yeah, we know…
Lou Ferrigno Jr.: And then there’s… um… I have my first lead in that suspense thriller called Nightshade, that’s going to be really exciting when that comes out; it’s in talks for distribution right now and until that stuff’s solidified, I’m just gonna have to be brief… um… about that, but yeah, there’s a lot of cool stuff coming up. Blackout with Josh Duhamel and Nick Nolte, it’s gonna be really, really cool… um… so yeah, in the meantime, there’s a couple of things in motion but those are finished and on their way.
And there you have it, this is what Hourman himself had to say about his future involvement with the series. It’s certainly good news and while we wait for his next appearance, let’s take a look back at one of the more memorable scenes from his second appearance on the show – his fatal encounter with Solomon Grundy:
We also asked Ferrigno Jr. does he like more Marvel or DC, so check that part of the interview as well.
Stargirl is currently filming its second season, set to air sometime during 2021. Until then, you can check out the full first season, consisting of 13 episodes. Available on CW.
