Chuck Norris is set to become a real-life Texas Ranger - the martial arts master will be made an honorary member of the law enforcement agency on Thursday, December 2. Norris, who played TV hardman Cordell Walker in hit series "Walker, Texas Ranger", is to be honored by state governor Rick Perry for boosting the profile of the department.
The ceremony, in which the 70 year old will be presented with an honorary Rangers' shield, will take place at an agency office in Dallas. But Norris won't be able to brag about the award to family and friends - his stuntman brother Aaron will also receive the accolade.
The Norrises will join a list of other honorary Rangers, including John Wayne, Will Rogers, George H.W. Bush and James B. Francis.
