Kevin Sorbo is an American actor and producer. Sorbo attended Minnesota State University Moorhead, where he double majored in marketing and advertising. He began to work as a model for print and television advertising.

In 1993, Sorbo received his breakthrough leading role as the ancient Greek demigod Hercules in a series of five television films. The first film was HERCULES AND THE AMAZON WOMEN, which aired in April 1994, the others following later in the year. The ratings success of the films paved the way for the commission of the television series HERCULES: THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS, which ran for six seasons. The series made Sorbo an international star and was one of the highest rated syndicated television shows at the time.

Sorbo played his first leading film role in the 1997 film KULL THE CONQUEROR. After Hercules ended, Sorbo played the main role of Captain Dylan Hunt in the science-fiction drama series ANDROMEDA from 2000 to 2005. In 2006, he played a recurring role on the final season of THE O.C.

In the 2008, he appeared in the spoof film titled MEET THE SPARTANS, which was a box office success despite poor reviews. He also reprised the role of Hercules in the video game GOD OF WAR III.

Sorbo is the spokesman and chair of A World Fit for Kids! (AWFFK!), a non-profit organization that trains teenagers to become mentors to younger children. In 2013, Sorbo received the Public Leadership in Neurology Award from the American Academy of Neurology and the American Brain Foundation for his efforts raising awareness about stroke. He also received the 2013 Inspiration Honors Award from the Invisible Disabilities Association.
