Chuck Norris named honorary Texan

Actor talks new film 'Last Ounce of Courage'


Chuck Norris may have been born in Oklahoma, but now he’s a Texan.

The Lone Star state’s Senate Resolution 569 “commending Chuck Norris for his many contributions to our state” and naming the actor an honorary Texan passed unanimously on Tuesday.

The “Walker, Texas Ranger” star also got a State Senate gavel and a flag that had been flown over the Alamo, the Austin American-Statesman reports.

Norris, 77, was present in Austin with his wife Geena to accept the award.

No word on if he performed any feats of impossible strength, but one would assume.
