Kevin Sorbo

Kevin in the 26 February 2000 TV Guide

NEW!In the 13 February 2007 article Sorbo Sets the Record Straight, Daniel Robert Epstein interviews Kevin on his relationship with Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi (not great) and on Walking Tall 2: The Payback and Walking Tall 2.

NEW!Kevin plays Nick in Walking Tall 3. It should be released on DVD in July 2007.

NEW!Kevin's got a new made for TV movie! Avenging Angel is about a preacher (played by Kevin) who becomes a bounty hunter after refugees hiding in his church are murdered. It premiers Saturday, 7 July 2007, on the Hallmark Channel. The Hollywood Reporter has an article about the show.

Kevin was fantastic as the hunky Hercules and as Dylan Hunt on Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda.

On Hercules

The End of the Beginning

If I Had a Hammer -- Not much to say about this one. Except maybe humina, humina, humina. Or Whoah baby!

Yes, Virginia, There is a Hercules -- Kevin wasn't in it much, but I managed to get a shot or two...

Armaggedon Now, Part 1, and Part 2 -- In this wonderful episode Kevin played the dual role of Hercules and the Sovereign. The Sovereign is a blast, and quite a hunk if I do say so myself.

Stranger in a Strange World -- This episode was heavy on the hunks! I've put all of their pictures together (three pages worth) for your viewing pleasure. This was a great episode! Enjoy!

...And Fancy Free -- Who knew drinking lemonade could be so sexy?
