Kevin Sorbo Not Happy With ‘Hercules’ and ‘The Expendables’ Brass

Kevin Sorbo has spoken candidly about Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming movie Hercules, saying that he should have been given a part in it.

The actor previously played the title role in the ’90s show Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

Talking to Dish Nation, he said: “We were sort of taken aback they wouldn’t let me in that movie. I didn’t do a cameo. I think it’s kinda stupid, really.”

Sorbo continued: “To not me put on in a cameo… it’s taking the business out of show business, and it’s just kinda stupid. I’m still on all over America, on Netflix, on Hub, on Encore. I’m still in, like, 50 countries around the world. It was the most-watched show in the world in the ’90s, passing Baywatch.”

The actor went on to say: “We approached the director. I don’t know what his reasons are – I don’t know if it’s political, or it’s ego, or what it is. But to not put me in just for a stupid little cameo, the audience would’ve loved it. They would’ve loved it.”

Sorbo did, however, compliment the movie’s lead actor, saying: “Dwayne Johnson and I used to work out at the same gym for a while. He’s a nice guy.”

He also discussed his exclusion from the Expendables saga, saying: “They (Avi Lerner) told me they were gonna put me in Expendables 2, and they never did.

“Maybe I’m too tall for that cast,” he joked.
