Kevin Sorbo

Born: 9/24/1958
Birthplace: Mound, Minnesota

After many guest appearances on Dallas, Murder, She Wrote, and Cybill, among others, Sorbo landed the title role in a series of 1994 television movies about Hercules. The movies—and Sorbo—proved to be so popular that they inspired the enormously successful syndicated series, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (1995– 2000). Sorbo played a spaceship captain in the series Andromeda (2000).
