Stargirl just added another member of the Justice Society of America: Hourman. Lou Ferrigno Jr. has joined the DC Universe series as a recurring guest star. He will play Rex Tyler, a superhero who can engage his super strength for only one hour a day.
According to TVLine's description of the character, Ferrigno Jr.'s Tyler is "a master chemist and adrenaline junkie who as Hourman is a thrill-seeking superhero... A founding member of the Justice Society of America, Rex/Hourman struggles with balancing his life as a hero and father."
The son of iconic Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno, Ferrigno Jr. has appeared in S.W.A.T., Teen Wolf and How I Met Your Mother. His past credits also include Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Bones, 9-1-1 and more.
This won't be the first time Hourman has appeared on the small screen. As played by Suits star Patrick J. Adams, the character also appeared on DC's Legends of Tomorrow as a JSA member in the 1940s. He appeared in two episodes.
Ferrigno Jr. will join Brec Bessinger, who plays the eponymous Stargirl, and Joel McHale, who joined the project as Starman just yesterday. Yvette Monreal, Christopher James Baker and Anjelika Washington are also attached to the series, but their roles have not yet been revealed.
According to the show's official description, Stargirl will inspire "an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past," and the show will feature a new take on DC's first superteam, the Justice Society of America. Given the Society's large roster and numerous villains, these actors could end up portraying any of a number of established DC characters on the show.
Stargirl joins the DC Universe line-up of Titans and the upcoming Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing live-action dramas. Other original content already announced includes an animated adult-aimed Harley Quinn series and Young Justice: Outsiders, a continuation of the fan-favorite Young Justice cartoon.
