The ‘Incredible’ Lou Ferrigno is ‘Hulk Smashing’ his way to Buffalo!

We are pleased to announce that actor, fitness trainer and former bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno will be making his way to Nickel City Con this May! Known to a generation as the original incarnation of The Incredible Hulk, Lou was born in Brooklyn, NY to Vistoria and Matt Ferrigno, an Italian American Police Lieutenant. Soon after he was born, he suffered a series of ear infections and lost 75%-80% of his hearing, though his condition was not diagnosed until he was three years old. He started weight training at the age of 13, citing body builder and actor Steve Reeves as one of his role models. As a bodybuilder, Ferrigno won an IFBB Mr. America title and two consecutive IFBB Mr. Universe titles, and appeared in the bodybuilding documentary Pumping Iron (1977). As an actor, he is best known for portraying the title role in the CBS television series The Incredible Hulk (1977-1982). He has also appeared in European-produced fantasy-adventures such as Hercules (1983) and Sinbad of the Seven Seas (1989), and as himself in the sitcom The King of Queens (1998-2007) and the comedy I Love You, Man (2009). Lou will be attending the convention all three days! #HulkSmash!
