Kevin Sorbo – Something of A Paradox?

August 10, 2009

Today I was traveling and I know airports drive some people three shades of crazy, but I find them the Petri dish of human behavior.   I admit it, I travel first class and silllllllly meeeee, I always thought I was paying not only for the seat, bad food and plastic “silverware”, but also the space ABOVE my seat as well.  Oh my what was I thinking?  So, when I handed the “ticket master” my boarding pass, I was informed “I would have to check my bag, as there was no room for it on the aircraft” may I add that my suitcase was specifically and aerodynamically constructed to meet ALL industry specifications. (e.g. my damn bag is small enough to carry all my small clothing and my small toiletries ONTO THE PLANE)

That was not the case today, or so the slightly misguided, yet delightfully perky “ticket master” thought. My permutation seemed quite logical – “Thank you perky person, but I have utilized 136,000 frequent flyer miles to secure this ticket.  That is $1 for each mile earned or $136,000.00.  So being that my seat is greater than the sum of my mortgage, I feel compelled to inform you with the utmost respect, I WILL BE BRINGING MY LITTLE BAG ONBOARD”


That being said, what’s a guy to do when he gets a chance to talk to Hercules?  Half man half G-d and ALL Kevin Sorbo!  Say it with me K E V I N  S O R B O… If we are in fact defined by the company we keep than I too could argue I am half man (no big news flash and half G-d) I like the sound of that one.  But I am certainly not a big, hunky, blonde Nordic, hunky, big  (I know I said that already but it seemed necessary) heapin’ portion of an A Lister who is absolutely attitude free!   In fact, this guy while being all man, had no need to overwhelm me with a flood of testosterone and instead was humble, direct, funny and not afraid to let a refreshing and edgy sense of humor shine through.

So while discussing this, that and of course the other thing with my THNHHNBFF or (Tall, Hunky, Nordic, Half G-d, Half Man New Best Friend Forever) it became clear why he has been on the radar for more than a decade.  With a new blockbuster hit, Paradox – poised for release this year and two Sci-Fi Channel projects Lightening Strikes and Fire From Below ready to hit us between the eyes in September; “Kev” is also gearing up for a romantic comedy What If with Kristy Swanson from Buffy the Vampire Slayer – The Movie

But did ya’ know that he is the voice of countless Wii characters?  Did ya’ know his second child weighed  12 ½ pounds at birth?  (that is a sofa, not a baby Kev) and did ya’ know that I have some work to do for my new THNHHNBFF – So here we go

  1. Tom (Hanks) Your movie Viking R? Hellooooo think no further, look at what ya got.  KEVIN SORBO… Deliciously Nordic and delightfully talented.  Tom make the call now or I absolutely refuse to clean your toilets any longer and I will not be swayed
  2. Mercedes Benz?  Please say “Goodnight John Boy…” Richard Thomas is a dream and I adore him, BUT Kevin Sorbo is the new voice of luxury and if you don’t end up buying a Mercedes he can beat ya’ up.  Makes sense to me!

Now with that out of the way… A few more thoughts…Andromeda – The Sci-Fi Channels stellar hit. Who led the intergalactic entourage?  You are correct compadres, Good Ol’ Kevin and while I am no stylista I think many will agree what little he did wear he wore oh so well!

So despite that fact the fact that I could have talked to this guy all day and I know he was enthralled by my overwhelmingly witty personality (he didn’t need to say it as I felt the common bond).  Here are some points to ponder…

  1. He is tall – I am not
  2. He defines hunk – I do not
  3. He is a chick magnet – I am not
  4. He is blonde – I am not
  5. He can bench press a freight train – I can not

Geez how much clearer can it be, we are practically twins separated at birth.   Kevin THANK YOU it was really sumpin’, sumpin’ and please do answer your phone when Tom calls as I am getting a little weary of cleaning his toilets for ya.

    omgosh omgosh omgosh, Josh. i cant believe you actually interviewed Mr. Hunka Hunka Kevin Hunka Sorbo. Your Twins connection is great. i totally see the connections. your just not identical twins anyway. and you’ve always said you were adopted. it totally makes sense.

    How great to learn that these amazing A-listers are as great humans off screen while not playing a role. what a refreshing change.

  2. Hi Josh
    I must be missing something, where is the interview you did with Kevin? Sorry I don’t see it, lol.
    Also, where can I get those Kevin model shots you posted and in a larger size. If you can direct me to your interview, I will post it on my blog if I may.
    Thanks and congratulations 🙂

      It is just a blog posting of my chat with him not a full out interview…More about what he wanted to share – random thoughts, projects etc

  3. Kevin is blond? Hmm I must need glasses – for 12 years now lol!! Ok I know in HTLJ he had a few blond extension put in but I adore that chesnut hair, long or short. Nice pix.
