If only ABC could convince "Wonder Woman" star Lynda Carter to join the cast of "Dancing with the Stars," my childhood dreams might actually come true. According to Life & Style, former "Incredible Hulk" star Lou Ferrigno just joined the cast of the ever-popular show "Dancing With the Stars." Sources say Lou, who was training Michael Jackson for his comeback concerts until the singer died on June 25, had previously tried out for the show in 2007.
Although the former bodybuilder and frequent movie cameo appearance-maker hasn't yet signed the contract, he told Life & Style that he can't wait to start training. Awesome. He could totally substitute Lil' Kim and Shawn Johnson for dumbells while doing his bicep curls.
"I had a good meeting with the producers, it was really positive, and they loved the idea of having me on the show," Lou says. He's known for being a great athlete, but dancing isn't exactly Ferrigno's forte.
"I've never done that type of dancing before, so I know that I'll have to train hard," he says. "I'm a glutton for punishment, so I'll give it my best shot."
Here's to hoping that Lou's 1977 "Pumping Iron" cast mate and California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger will make a surprise guest appearance!
