Kevin Sorbo

In the Marriott on Friday, Kevin Sorbo was charming and funny as he fielded questions from the audience. He talked about his movies, as well as Hercules and Andromeda. He’s had five movies on the table this year, but all of them fell through at the last moment. His charity, A World Fit For Kids, has had huge success. Of the 6,000 kids that have gone through the program, they have had a 100% graduation rate, as compared to the 54% dropout rate in California. He is hosting the first annual golf tournament in Las Vegas this fall with some A-List people coming to raise money for this charity. There is talk of a series he may be in, which may be out for the fall schedule next year. Cross your fingers. Be sure to catch Kevin at his other panels this weekend.
