Kevin Sorbo has enjoyed success on television for over 20 consecutive years, a feat rarely accomplished by an actor.
Sorbo quickly rose to stardom in the title role of the hit series, “Hercules, the Legendary Journeys”. The immense popularity of the 5 initial 2-hour telefilms in 1993 resulted in the launch of a weekly series by 1994. The series not only became a breakout hit by becoming the number one first-run program in syndication, it also passed “Baywatch” as the most watched TV show in the world. The innovative action hour revitalized the entire action/adventure genre on television and fostered two spin-off series, “Xena, Warrior Princess”, and “Young Hercules”. Sorbo also directed two episodes of the show, and co-wrote one installment.
Following the success of “Hercules”, Sorbo went on to star in the lead role of “Captain Dylan Hunt” in “Gene Roddenberry’s, Andromeda”. The series, based upon writings from the late “Star Trek” creator’s archives, debuted as the number one hour show in first run syndication and held that spot throughout it’s five year run from 2000-2005.
Kevin Joins us on Divine Intervention to share about his career, his faith, and how the Lord spoke to him and healed him after he suffered a near fatal brain anuerism that doctors said should have killed him or at least ended his acting career.
Actress JENN GOTZON is a small-town girl who has big dreams of making a difference in people's lives. Raised in the suburbs of Allentown, PA, GOTZON has persistently pursued her passion for film acting to play complex characters who find hope in the climax of the storyline. She began performing right out of high school, appearing in murder mystery dinner theater, entertaining at Walt Disney World and competing in the Miss America pageant system.
After studying at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, GOTZON moved to Los Angeles and landed a string of bit parts in big productions like Ang Lee's HULK, Sundance pleaser 500 DAYS OF SUMMER, Sean William Scott starrer ROLE MODELS along with Emmy-winning TV series PUSHING DAISIES and HOUSE. Big parts in smaller productions came her way, too, including 168 Film Festival 2008 best film winner STAINED that earned her the fest's best actress award for her lead role as a political prisoner in a futuristic society. At the 2008 Wildwood By-The-Sea (NJ) Film Festival she was named Rising Star of the year for her leading lady turn in the speed-dating romantic comedy short CHEMISTRY whose fest director Paul Russo described GOTZON as "having the acting depth of Kate Winslet and the charisma of Reese Witherspoon."
The Pennsylvania native got her big break, ironically, on Pennsylvania Avenue in Ron Howard's 2009 best picture Oscar nominee FROST/NIXON, playing the president's daughter Tricia Nixon. Since then, GOTZON’s dream has started to come true, beginning with her portraying heroine Beatrice alongside Eric Roberts as her love Dante in docudrama DANTE’S INFERNO DOCUMENTED based on the legendary The Divine Comedy. Last year, she starred in five feature films (in chron order): romantic mystery-drama DOONBY opposite "The Dukes of Hazzard" star John Schneider; political-thriller DRAGON DAY about a Chinese cyber-takeover of the U.S.; French and Indian War drama ALONE YET NOT ALONE, in which she plays an historical British captive; faith-based musical SEPTEMBER SKIES; and family-friendly comedic-drama GODS COUNTRY, directed by her husband Chris Armstrong and set to be distributed by Sony.
This March, GOTZON commences principal photography on the spoken word poetry slam drama THE DIARY OF BABINEAUX in Austin, TX. Currently, she and her writer-director-Super-Bowl-commercial-finalist hubby are working on a New Orleans action-thriller about the significance of life produced by their production company Elysian Pictures and Brown Pelican Films. All are socially relevant films that endeavor to make a difference in people's lives.
GOTZON’s ultimate passion is impacting and inspiring audiences through the message behind the roles she plays. With this goal, she developed a motivational mentor-outreach program, "Inspiring Audiences," through which she speaks to students, screens her movies and shares her testimony on overcoming life’s obstacles with prayer and perseverance in hopes to encourage them to find their passion in life and live their dreams.
