Chuck Norris itching to get back to TV

Chuck Norris, former karate champion, film actor, and star of the long-running action show Walker, Texas Ranger, says he wants to revisit the role more often in the future, The Los Angeles Daily News reported yesterday. Norris returns to the character with the upcoming movie Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial By Fire, which airs October 16 on CBS.

"I really like the character a lot, and I'd like to do a couple Walker movies of the week per year," Norris said. "It was great fun, like we'd never taken four years away."

Walker, Texas Ranger brought the adventures of the wooden lawman to viewers each week for eight years. The show starred Norris as a Ranger based in Dallas, Texas, who was raised by a wise Native American. Walker took no guff from criminals, often using karate moves to knock them through fences or saloon windows.

Norris came to fame as a six-time undefeated World Professional MiddleWeight Karate Champion, and he taught karate to such actors as Steve McQueen and Bob Barker. He went on to star in many action films in the '80s, including Invasion USA, Delta Force, and the Missing In Action franchise.

Norris can currently be seen in infomercials for Total Gym, where he extolls the virtues of an exercise device called the Total Gym alongside supermodel Christie Brinkley. Both Norris and Brinkley say there is no better way to get in shape than with the exercise unit.

The Walker movie also stars Janine Turner and former Walker cast members Sheree Wilson, Judson Mills, and Clarence Gilyard.

I am so glad that Norris is making another show. I have all episodes of 8yrs an would love to see 8 more. They need to have a reunion show with all the charaters, including Sydney & Gage, maybe getting married. Now that would be a wedding. Seriously, we need more showes like Walker Texas Ranger on T.V. these days.

Walker has been one of my favorite tv shows ever since I was a little kid and I really like watching reruns and own the sets of the shows

Guess again Dark Lord, its so NOT over for Chuck Norris!! Granted, he may carry the trademarks of Father Time and the California sun but little else about him has changed. From 8 to 80, he brought more than one family together on a Sunday night gathered around an invention called the television. He did this consistently for 8 years!

The movie was pretty good. However thee actors that played those "Koreans" were a little over dramatic. I just wanted to jump into the tv and ring their necks! We definately have to see a part 2 to see what happened to Alex.

Oh No! It cant end like that, can it? When is part 2? And where is Sidney? I love this show and the original cast was great, but really how can they make a movie without "Sidney"? And wouldnt it just break Walker all to pieces if Alex is... well, like I asked, when is part 2?

I cannot WAIT to see him come back into "Walker Texas Ranger"!!! This is my favorite tv show to date, and I still watch every episode. The fans out here would like to see more of him, and some new scenes... and having the regular cast come back with him is just great news! I'm glad I found this report, and look forward to seeing the show.
