Kevin Sorbo
Sorbo received international stardom when he booked the lead role in “Hercules, the Legendary Journeys” (1993-1999) the most watched TV show in the world, airing in 176 countries. Following that success, Sorbo had the lead role as “Captain Dylan Hunt” in “Gene Roddenberry’s, Andromeda”. The first show created by Roddenberry after the original Star Trek series. Andromeda debuted as the number one, hour-long show in first run syndication and remained at number one for its entire run from 2000-2005.
 
Notable movies include “Kull, the Conqueror”, “Walking Tall, the Payback”, “Avenging Angel”, and “Meet the Spartans”. The independent film “What If” was nominated for Best Family Movie of the Year 2011 by the Movie Guide Awards. Sorbo also received the Movie Guide Award for Most Inspirational Performance of the Year.
 
Some of his many television credits include “Just Shoot Me, “Two and a Half Men”, “Dharma and Greg”, “According to Jim”, “Gary Unmarried”, “Psych”, “Hawaii 5-0”, and “The OC”.
 
Sorbo also starred alongside Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt in “Soul Surfer” . 2014 saw the release of the faith-based movie, “God’s Not Dead”. The $2 million-dollar budgeted movie became the most successful independent faith-based movie ever with over $75 million US Box Office.
 
“Let There Be Light” was released in October 2018. Sorbo directed/acted in this faith/family movie which ranked number 4 out of the top 10 family movies of that year. LTBL follows the life of the world’s greatest atheist and the road he follows after his beliefs are challenged.
 
“Bernie, the Dolphin” hit theaters in December of 2018 and is a wonderful kid’s movie for the whole family. Bernie Part Two will be in theaters in December of 2019. Another movie is “The Reliant” which is a faith/drama dealing with the economic collapse of America with a Fall of 2019 release. Other movies being released in 2020 is “One Nation Under God”. The High school drama deals with controversy over that quote in our Nation’s Pledge of Allegiance. The Mustard Seed” starring alongside Mira Sorvino, Peter Coyote and Burgess Jenkins, will also be in theaters in 2020.
 
Filming completed in August of 2018 on, “Miracle in East Texas”, a Comedy based on a true story set in 1930. Sorbo directed/acted and the movie will open nationwide in Spring of 2020. Also starring in the movie is John Ratzenberger, Lou Gossett, Jr. and Tyler Mane. Miracle won Best Romantic Comedy at the Houston Film Festival and Family Favorite at the Orlando Film Festival and Best Narrative Film in Las Vegas along with the Best Faith Family movie in Franklin, TN.
 
Sorbo also produced/narrated the documentary, “Against the Tide” that follows the career of Oxford math professor John Lennox in his life-long apologist debates against the world’s most famous atheists like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens. Another documentary releasing early 2020 is Before the Wrath which chronicles the Book of Revelation. Sorbo also is on camera and narrator of Climate Hustle 2 which is the sequel to Climate Hustle and takes on the so called “facts” of Global Warming activistism.
 
Sorbo also produced BreatheBible.com which is a theatrical 18 CD collection reading of The New Testament. Over 80 actors voice the biblical figures, Sorbo voices God. Nice upgrade from his half-god days on Hercules!
 
Kevin released his memoir in 2012, “True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal and How Nearly Dying Saved My Life”. The book chronicles his near-death experience when he suffered three strokes and the battle back to regain his life. Sorbo also co-authored a Chicken Soup for the Soul, “Think Positive for Kids”.
 
In real life, Kevin leads “A World Fit for Kids”, a successful mentoring model that trains inner-city teens to use school, fitness, sports and positive role models for themselves. World Fit is the number on after school program in the state of California.
