The DC Universe series Stargirl is really ramping up. It was just yesterday that we got news about the casting of Joel McHale as Starman. Today, we found out that another JSA member, Hourman would be joining the show. Not only that, but he will be played by Lou Ferrigno Jr., son of Lou Ferrigno who famously played The Incredible Hulk persona along-side Bill Bixby’s Dr. Banner in the classic Hulk TV show.
This is not the first time that Hourman has been on the TV in recent years. It wasn’t that long ago that Suits star, Patrick J. Adams portrayed the role of the hero on The CW’s Arrowverse shows. While not currently listed as a show regular, Ferrigno Jr has signed on to be a recurring guest star for at least the first season of the show.
In this iteration of the character, he’s described as being –
“A master chemist and adrenaline junkie who as Hourman is a thrill-seeking superhero with the ability to manifest super-strength… for one hour a day.” <>/b
Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (School of Rock and All Night‘s Brec Bassinger) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama will reimagine Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.
