7/18 KEVIN SORBO, SUSAN ZIRINSKI, 48 HOURS, STEVE EVANS

KEVIN SORBO – AMERICAN ACTOR – ALONGSIDE NIGHT (POLITICAL THRILLER)

ABOUT ALONGSIDE NIGHT:
Alongside Night is a political thriller movie that tells the story of the final economic collapse of the United States as seen through the eyes of 16-year-old Elliot Vreeland, searching for his missing Nobel-laureate-economist father (played by Kevin Sorbo, Hercules).

This independent film is Director/ Writer J. Neil Schulman's latest production, and is based on his award-winning 1979-libertarian novel endorsed by Nobel-laureate Milton Friedman, Anthony Burgess, Glenn Beck, and Ron Paul. Neil has written 10 books, and there is a new movie edition and new graphic novel tied to the film. alongsidenightmovie.com

In addition to Kevin Sorbo, the movie features Tim Russ (Live Free or Die Hard) and Garrett Wang (Star Trek: Voyager), Mara Marini (Parks and Recreation), Said Faraj (NCIS: Los Angeles), Jake Busey (CSI: NY), and Dr. Ron Paul as himself.

BIO:
Hailing from Norwegian ancestry, Kevin was born in Mound, Minnesota, USA. His mother worked as a nurse and his father taught junior high school resulting in a down to earth upbringing that forged the outstanding work ethic Kevin holds to this day. By the time he was in University, Kevin was covering tuition costs with modeling work which swiftly translated into a career in television with his first appearances on Prime Time shows such as Murder She Wrote and The Commish.

Just as the Hercules series came to an end, Kevin received a call from the wife of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, personally requesting him to play the lead role in Roddenberry’s second sci-fi series, Andromeda. The show ran for five seasons and further fueled Kevin’s already ferociously loyal global following!

In 1993, Kevin emerged as a full fledged international TV star when he was cast as the lead role of Hercules in a series of TV films that would lay the groundwork for the immensely popular series, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Kevin also guest-starred as Hercules in episodes of the successful spin-off series Xena: Warrior Princess as well as providing his voice to the animated Hercules films. In 1997 Kevin accepted his first leading film role in the fantasy action feature Kull the Conquerer.

Along the way, Kevin played characters in video games such as Mortal Kombat 4, God of War and The Conduit. Kevin guest starred on the sitcom Two and a Half Men and played a recurring role on the final season of The O.C. One glimpse at Kevin's imdb and it's clear that this hard working actor takes no breaks! In addition to his work onscreen, Kevin now also produces films, recently serving as Executive Producer and star of the movie Abel's Field.

Kevin recently authored the widely praised book, True Strength, that recounts the painful recovery from serious health setbacks that changed his life during his Hercules years. Sorbo married actress Sam Jenkins, whom he met during her guest appearance on Hercules in 1998. They have three children together, Braeden, Shane and Octavia.

Besides his successful career in entertainment, Kevin has always devoted a hearty portion of his time to causes he believes in. In 2005 he was named successor to Arnold Schwarzenegger as the national spokesperson for The Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit working to ensure that all children have access to quality after school programs, and since ‘97 Kevin has donated his time as the spokesperson for the non profit organization, A World Fit For Kids.
