Former Hercules Kevin Sorbo Isn't Too Happy With Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Hercules Movie! And The Reason Is Totally Personal!
Kevin Sorbo, who played the title hero for four years on the syndicated Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, apparently isn't too happy with the new movie- mostly because they wouldn't let him be in it! He said:
"Dwayne Johnson and I used to work at the same gym for a while, nice guy.
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. 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.
To not me put on in a cameo, it's taking the business out of show business, and it's just kinda stupid. 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."
Hmm, seems a little bitty bit bitter to us.
But then again, Kevin doing a cameo as some random strongman that The Rock can crush between his thighs? That does kinda seem like a no-brainer.
What do U think?
