Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

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?
