ACTOR KEVIN SORBO TELLS THEBLAZE WHY HE’S NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST OBAMA AND HOLLYWOOD

by Billy Hallowell, The Blaze  |  published on February 23, 2013

Earlier this month, actor Kevin Sorbo spoke with TheBlaze about his career, the politics of Hollywood and his views about President Barack Obama and the current political schema.

The “Hercules” actor’s statements spawned a plethora of reaction, as critics and fans, alike, were surprised by his moderate — and some might argue right-of-center — perspective. We decided to speak with Sorbo, again, this week to see what he thinks about the monumental response and to chat further about his life and career.

While he hasn’t heard much from his Hollywood compatriots regarding the negative comments he uttered about Obama during his Blaze interview, Sorbo said that some of his close friends reacted favorably, commending him for his honesty.

As for Tinseltown, he doesn’t expect a favorable reaction from the elite. But he noted that they likely won’t be surprised, as many already know where he stands on the theological and political fronts. Sorbo noted that his outspoken views and general failure to align with the industry’s left-of-center political outlook is “enough to piss them off” regardless of whether they saw the interview.

The actor also reaffirmed what he said earlier this month — that Hollywood is prone to blackballing those who don’t align ideologically and that the industry includes “the least tolerant people you’ll meet.”

But in his follow-up interview with TheBlaze, Sorbo expressed surprise that some people were so taken aback by his words. In his view, his beliefs aren’t rooted in partisan politics, but, instead, they’re predicated upon the nation’s current standing — one that has been colored by economic hardship and divisiveness.
