It’s not unheard of for celebrities to move into politics or even the presidency. Ronald Reagan, for example, was an actor before entering politics. Of course, Reagan was governor of California before becoming president. Trump went from being a real-estate developer and reality TV star to becoming president. His is, arguably, America’s first celebrity administration and soon we may have yet another celebrity working for Trump. Lou Ferrigno, who played the part of the Incredible Hulk on TV in the late 70s and early 80s, has said that he is being considered as one of the candidates to lead Trump’s council on fitness and nutrition.

Ferrigno made his comments during a recent interview where he also discussed the possibility of returning to movies.

‘I want to be the head of the president’s council for physical fitness and nutrition. So I’ve been corresponding with President Trump because I want to change America and make America healthy again. I’m a top choice for that. So we’ll see what happens, because I feel I’m the best candidate for that.’

As far as celebrity appointments go, we suppose things could be worse. At least Trump isn’t considering Ferrigno for Supreme Court justice or anything. We don’t expect that an actor who is primarily known for his role of an irradiated rage monster as the best person to advise Americans on matters of fitness, but we don’t see him doing major harm in the job either. Honestly, with Trump appointed “not doing harm” sometimes seems like the best we can expect.

Beyond that, Ferrigno does seem to have one important quality that Trump admires above all else: loyalty. The actor has been an avid Trump supporter for some time now. In 2015, he told TMZ that Trump was a “fabulous guy.”

‘I wish Donald the best. He’s a fabulous guy. I hope he goes all the way and I love all people. Donald, all he cares about is our country and keeping our country safe. That’s what it comes down to.’
