Wizard World Comic Con hits Madison's Alliant Energy Center Friday-Sunday October 25-27! Along with all the events, costumes, cosplay, and activities, a TON of celebrities will be there.
Bodybuilding legend Lou Ferrigno, who turned hearing loss as a child into motivation to become a world champion bodybuilder, will be one of them. With the Stan Lee influence on both Wizard World Comic Con and the Incredible Hulk series, Lou was a natural draw for everyone going. I interviewed Lou and discussed his growing up in Brooklyn, becoming a bodybuilder who won the IFBB Mr. America title and two consecutive IFBB Mr. Universe titles and appeared in the bodybuilding documentary Pumping Iron, with led to a career in TV and movies. The Incredible Hulk really launched him into stardom, and younger generations know him from his recurring role in King of Queens and movie appearances in I Love You, Man, Lego Marvel's Adventures, and more. Lou also has been deputized in 22 states and serves on the President's Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition.
In this EricCast interview, we also talked, of course, about Wizard World coming up and how you can meet him! And maybe get put into a gentle headlock.
