Chuck Norris wants more 'Walker'

Sept. 28, 2005 at 7:13 PM

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Actor Chuck Norris says he wouldn't mind revisiting his old "Walker, Texas Ranger" TV role a couple of times a year.

In promoting the Oct. 16 CBS movie, "Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire," Norris told the Los Angeles Daily News he misses playing the Lone Star lawman.

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

Back for the TV movie are former "Walker" co-stars Sheree Wilson, Judson Mills and Clarence Gilyard. Janine Turner plays a forensics specialist.

Norris said it was his decision to end the popular show, which ran on CBS from 1993 to 2001. He told the newspaper his wife, Gina, was going through a rough pregnancy with twins and he needed to be with her at the time.

Now the twins are in preschool, he said.
