Kevin Sorbo Angry He's Not in New 'Hercules': 'It's Kind of Stupid' (Video)
Kevin Sorbo is one angry demigod.
The star of the '90s syndicated hit Hercules: The Legendary Journeys says he asked for a cameo in the upcoming Dwayne Johnson film, but was denied.

"I think it's kind of stupid really," he told Dish. "To not put me in a cameo is taking the business out of show business."
Sorbo says his team asked director Brett Ratner about appearing in the role.
"We approached the director. I don’t know what his reasons are," Sorbo said. "I don't know if it was political or ego or what it is? To not put me in for a stupid little cameo? The audience would have loved it."
Ratner's rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Sorbo's Hercules ran for six seasons from 1995-99.
Sorbo isn't the only one sore about the project. Comic book writer Alan Moore is urging people to boycott the Paramount film (for unrelated reasons).
