Jude Ferrigno (born November 9, 1951 is an American
bodybuilder and actor. Ferrigno has appeared in
such TV shows and movies as The Incredible Hulk,
Pumping Iron, Sinbad of the Seven Seas, and Hercules
in 1983. He is best known for playing and voicing
the Incredible Hulk. He has more recently played
a recurring role, as himself, in the sitcom The
King of Queens.
Ferrigno was only 21 when he won his first Mr. Universe
title, a Guinness Book record that stands to this
day. More incredible, at age 22 he won again - and
to this day remains the only person to win consecutive
titles! Lou carried the world of bodybuilding to new
heights and himself to superstardom with the film
documentary, "Pumping Iron," that chronicled
the fabled exploits of the youngest and only person
to ever become Mr. Universe twice in a row! Exploding
onto the film scene, with his place as a body building
legend secured, Lou set out to do the same thing in
film and television. In less than a year after "Pumping
Iron," Lou was again larger than life and created
a new cult legend as the title character of the hit
show "The Incredible Hulk." The same hard
work that crafted his six foot five inch, two hundred
eighty five pound frame into a piece of human art,
define him as an actor with the uncanny ability to
assume characters of mythic proportions that carry
a primal humanity.
the discipline and resiliency that have made Lou into
a bodybuilding icon lend themselves to his willingness
to train as a serious theatrical actor. Lou worked
hard to improve his diction and immersed himself in
the actor's theatrical experience with the help of
his acting mentors, Milton Katselas, Howard Fine,
and "...Hulk" co-star Bill Bixby. The results
were great theatrical notices in Texas, Canada, and
Chicago (at Drury Lane Theater), for his starring
role in "Arsenic and Old Lace," and starring
roles in ambitious stage presentations of "Requiem
for a Heavyweight" and "Of Mice and Men"
- shows that toured throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Lou's passionate pursuit of excellence has brought
this Brooklyn born actor more than fame and fortune;
it has brought him the joy of fulfilling his life
an infant, Lou developed an ear infection that caused
him to lose some of his hearing. But he doesn't look
at that as a disadvantage: "As a matter of fact,
if I hadn't lost some of my hearing, I wouldn't be
where I am now. It forced me to maximize my own potential.
I had to be better that the average person to succeed.
That's why I chose bodybuilding. If I became the world
champion, if I could win admiration from my peers,
I could do anything."
true to his host of fans from the bodybuilding world,
Lou starred in the sequel to "Pumping Iron."
And, "Stand Tall" is a film that documents
Lou's 1994 comeback in the Masters Olympia title and
his return to bodybuilding after a seventeen year
retirement. Lou has starred in over twenty feature
films including "Cage" and "Cage II",
"And God Spoke", "All's Fair",
"Seven Magnificent Gladiators", and "Godson".
In two unforgettable performances in "Hercules"
and "The Adventures of Hercules", Lou lived
a life long dream by playing the legendary Greek hero.
this led to an amazingly successful personal training
business that includes such star clientele as Mickey
Rourke, Michael Jackson, and Chuck Norris, and led
him to author the book "Lou Ferrigno's Guide
to Personal Power, Bodybuilding and Fitness."
recently, Lou can be seen playing "The Slavemaster"
in the action/adventure series "Black Scorpion,"
currently airing Friday nights at eight on the Sci-Fi
channel. Lou also provides the voice for the UPN animated
series "The Incredible Hulk," with a cast
that includes Peter Strauss, Mark Hammill, Kathy Ireland,
and Richard Moll.

King of Queens," which airs in its third season
