While I'm sure Mr. Ferrigno is a lovely man, I'm personally weary of the guest-star focus in some fan films. Hopefully he's cast to the script and not the other way around.
Totally agree. I tire of the stunt casting, the trotting out of the genre war horses to capitalize on fan nostalgia. Productions should put more focus on stories that matter, stories that challenge the characters of Kirk, Spock and McCoy rather than tales centered around the guest star of yesteryear.

Jokes aside he could well be cast against type, a smart thing if it happens. If he's an alien he'd make a HUGE killer Gorn. Never mind rocks, asteroids would probably bounce off him
I hope he is cast against type. Would be nice for a change. Lou tends to get type cast a fair bit.

While I tend to agree with Maurice's thoughts on stunt casting, I understand the motivation of the people producing these things. Especially when it comes to Kickstarter campaigns.

I'm guessing that Mr. Mignogna used a connection he had at Disney in the form of Travis Willingham who currently plays King Roland II on Sofia the First, but worked with Mr. Mignogna on the two Fullmetal Alchemist series dubs at Funimation.

Or, more than likely, the production has numerous contacts in the professional filmmaking and television industry (including casting) and was able to secure Ferrigno the way any other actor is brought on. (Michael Forrest, Jamie Bamber, etc.)

I saw Big Lou from not so far away at my local comic con back in early september. The man looks great! I can only hope to look even a tenth as good when I reach 64 Hope to see a rollicking good story to showcase him...

Re: Star trek continues acquires hulking gueststar: Lou ferrigno

The fact remains - they got him. And it's a nice standard to set for themselves, bringing in a guest star each episode. Equal parts stunt casting and an "event" for fans. I for one am quite interested to see who Ferrigno will be playing.

He'd be a hell of a Klingon.

They've moved up the release date for Episode 2. Originally it was slated for mid to late March, but now apparently it's set for a February release.
