Lou Ferrigno Jr. has joined the cast of the DC Universe series Stargirl.
The S.W.A.T. actor will portray the Golden Age Hourman. The character is described as a master chemist and adrenaline junkie who is a thrill-seeking superhero with the ability to manifest super-strength… for one hour a day. The character serves as a founding member of the Justice Society of America, and he struggles with balancing his life as a hero and father.
The character will be a recurring guest on the show.
Announced back at San Diego Comic Con, the new show hails from Geoff Johns and stars Bella And The Bulldogs actress Brec Bassinger as the titular heroine. The show will follow high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore. Under the guise of Stargirl, she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. The show re-imagines both Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in a fun, exciting and unpredictable way.
Geoff Johns will write and executive produce the 13-episode series via his Mad Ghost Productions banner. The project hails from Warner Bros. Television and Greg Berlanti's studio-based Berlanti Productions, with Sarah Schechter also serving as an executive producer.
Johns and Lee Moder created the character, who was named after Geoff Johns' sister Courtney, who died in the 1996 explosion of TWA Flight 800. The character made her first appearance in July 1999's Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #1.
Ferrigno Jr. joins a cast that also includes Anjelika Washington, Giancarlo Esposito, and Joel McHale - who was cast in the role of Starman yesterday afternoon.
