More info
Kevin Sorbo quickly rose to stardom in the title role of the breakout hit series, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. The immense popularity of the five telefilms in 1993 resulted in the launch of a weekly series by 1994. The series became the number one first-run program in syndication and revitalized the entire action/adventure TV genre, fostering two spin-off series, Xena: Warrior Princess and Young Hercules. Following the success of Hercules, Sorbo went on to star in the TV series Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda, as Captain Dylan Hunt, which was the number one hour show in first run syndication throughout its five-year run (2000-2005). Beyond these two iconic series, Sorbo has been keeping busy with feature work, participating in up to eight productions a year, with incredible range from fantasy, to comedy, to action or totally trashy. These include, Fatal Call (2012), Poolboy: Drowning Out the Fury (2011), What If… (2010) and Bitch Slap (2009). However, most associate him to his feature debut in Kull, the Conqueror (1997), a prequel to Conan The Barbarian. Sorbo has a knack for comedy and was recently put to good use on the skit comedy show Key and Peele, as well as past appearances in Just Shoot Me, Two and a Half Men and Gary, Unmarried. Sorbo also did the voice over work on video game releases The Conduit, God of War 3, Skylanders: Giants and the animated Marvel series The Super Hero Squad Show as Ka-Zar. Since 1997, Sorbo has been the spokesman for the non-profit organization A World Fit For Kids, which provides gang, drug, and dropout prevention to teens through mentoring programs.
