Chuck Chuck

Chuck takes on green, mean fighting machine Lou Ferrigno on the September 27 episode of NBC's Chuck when the former Incredible Hulk guest stars as a bodyguard named Gerard. An altercation takes place when Chuck and Sarah go to Milan, Italy, on a mission and encounter Gerard.

"My character gets sidetracked when he falls in love. He's guarding an evil spy played by Victoria's Secret model Karolina Kurkova," Ferrigno tells TV Guide Magazine. "When Chuck tries to discourage me, I try to take him down, but then he puts me in a trance."

Turns out Ferrigno's had some experience protecting and serving the people. A few years ago, he was sworn in as a deputy with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department. "I help with a lot of patrol and search-and-rescue work in my spare time," he says. "One woman fell off a cliff. When we revived her, she looked up and said, 'Oh, my God — the Incredible Hulk!'"
