Lou Ferrigno talks Sports, Fitness and Nutrition Council

The original ‘Hulk’ discusses movies today, politics and joining the White House council.

Actor Lou Ferrigno, who played “The Incredible Hulk” on TV, is about to undergo another remarkable transformation.

The 68-year-old former bodybuilder will be sworn in as a New Mexico sheriff’s deputy next week, according to reports.

Ferrigno became a reserve deputy with the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office in California in 2012 and was a member of former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s volunteer sheriff posse in 2016 where he helped patrol the U.S.-Mexico border.

Socorro County Sheriff William Armijo, whose jurisdiction is south of Albuquerque, said Ferrigno will play a crucial role in department recruitment efforts.

Starting in 1973, Ferrigno won several bodybuilding titles, including Mr. America and Mr. Universe; he also worked as a sheet metal worker in a Brooklyn, N.Y., factory at that time, according to his website.

He is best known for his title role on the 1977-83 TV series "The Incredible Hulk," but has also acted on other shows, including a recurring role on the comedy "The King of Queens."

Ferrigno’s father was an NYPD lieutenant, according to his website.
