RIO GRANDE VALLEY, N.M. — The actor best known for playing Incredible Hulk is being sworn in as a sheriff's deputy in New Mexico Thursday.

Lou Ferrigno was Bruce Banner's alter-ego in the TV show that ran from the late 1970s to the early 1980s.

The 68-year-old has been a member of the volunteer sheriff posse in Maricopa County since 2010, according to his webpage.

Ferrigno says his new role is a legit position and isn't just honorary.

He added that he's certified and has always wanted to be a sheriff.
