Kevin Sorbo has enjoyed success on television for over twenty consecutive years, a feat rarely accomplished by an actor. Sorbo quickly rose to stardom in the title role of the hit series, Hercules, the Legendary Journeys. The immense popularity of the five initial 2-hour telefilms in 1993 resulted in the launch of a weekly series by 1994. The series not only became a breakout hit by becoming the number one first-run program in syndication, it also passed Baywatch as the most watched TV show in the world.
Following the success of Hercules, Sorbo went on to star in the lead role of Captain Dylan Hunt in Gene Roddenberry’s, Andromeda. The series, based upon writings from the late Star Trek creator’s archives, debuted as the number one show in first run syndication and held that spot throughout it’s five year run from 2000-2005.
In 1997, Sorbo made his feature film debut in Universal Studio's Kull, the Conqueror, a prequel to Conan, the Barbarian. Other films include, Walking Tall, The Payback, Lone Justice, Last Chance Café, Something Beneath, Clipping Adam, Never Cry Werewolf, An American Carol with David Zucker, Meet the Spartans, Lightning Strikes, Tommy and the Cool Mule, Prairie Fever, and Avenging Angel, which aired the summer of 2007 and was the third highest rated movie in the history of the Hallmark Channel. Sorbo also starred in the movie being highlighting during the program Abel's Field, which releases to DVD the day of this interview.
