Actor Kevin Sorbo said Hollywood cancelled him after he began sharing his Christian and political beliefs. He will be the keynote speaker at the Vitae Foundation’s annual Kansas City pro-life dinner on September 26 at Arrowhead Stadium.
Sorbo gained fame for his role in the hit show “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” in which portrayed Hercules from 1995 to 1999. However, he told Fox News that he felt pushback when he began sharing his beliefs. Sorbo said his agent dropped him as a client, and he was blacklisted in the entertainment industry.
“It was sad to me, you know, my manager and agent for so many years said that `we can’t get you jobs anymore because of you being a Christian, being a conservative,’” Sorbo told Fox News. “I almost had to laugh at that, because it’s an industry that screams for tolerance and yet it’s a one-way street. It screams for freedom of speech. But Hollywood’s a one-way street as well. And that’s just too bad, you know. But I love the industry. I love the movies and TV.”
A number of online platforms pulled his profiles and blocked his content.
“Even LinkedIn took me down,” he said. “They don’t like the truth. On X (formerly Twitter), I said, ‘I need more conspiracy theories, because all of mine came true.’ But did Facebook apologize for taking me down even though I was right? No, because they don’t like the truth. The truth is too difficult for some people to take.”
Sorbo and his wife launched their own production studio called Sorbo Studios. The couple met on the set of “Hercules” when she was cast in a recurring role. They married in 1998 and have two sons and a daughter. The Sorbos both starred in the 2019 film “Miracle in East Texas,” which they coproduced through Sorbo Studios and Sorbo directed. The movie tells the true story of two con men who attempt to persuade a group of widows to invest in their worthless oil wells.
