Well, another year comes to a close, and, frankly, for this one not a moment too soon for many of us!
Thanks for supporting this blog, Kevin’s many fan and fan club sites and forums, and his Official and new sites! None of us could do any of this without you… So, I raise my glass to everyone for the grand times we’ve had, and the ones we are about to experience together as we embark on 2010. Cheers!
And to you, boss… Here’s to a fantastic year with your exciting new releases to which we will all flock to see and buy… The health of your friends and family… Your continued success… And that we don’t drive you too crazy tweeting and facebooking (is that a word?!) you… Salut!

This interesting piece is from Jarrett Crippen who played Deputy Al Johnson in “Lightning Strikes” with Kevin:
I’d like to say that all of your fandom is completely justified.
I didn’t want to bug THE STAR, so I just nodded and moved past him. He stopped, stuck out his hand and said, “HI! I’m Kevin.” (Like I didn’t know who he was…)
We began talking, and he found out I was his deputy and it continued on from there.
Turns out that when Kevin is abroad the last place he wants to be (unless he has other scripts and such to read, which he always seems to have) is his hotel room.
It was great walking the streets of Sophia (Bulgaria) with him, and he is incredibly magnanimous. If he noticed someone looking sideways at him he would take the time to stop and shake their hand. He was very patient as not all of them spoke English, although many do.
Kevin was also very patient with me as I am not an actor and had been given a significant role in the movie. I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor in Kevin and in Gary Jones the director, both very nice and patient.
I hope you’ll like the movie. For a low budget affair I think it is very well done.

I also want to thank you all for your support and kindness throughout this past year. I am grateful that you are willing to share your touching stories and beautiful art with me and Kevin’s many fans.
It has been a pleasure meeting and getting to know you all. I have enjoyed doing this immensely!
Of course, I can’t forget the boss: Thanks, Kevin, for allowing us into your life. We all wish for you a prosperous year with your career and blessings on your lovely family.
Merry Christmas, everyone!!!
I give you this, one of my favorite bands, Trans-Siberian Orchestra. They totally rock… saw them twice in concert! If you ever get the chance to see them, go! ”Christmas Canon Rock”:

I wrote a story for CelebrityCafe.com that posted today. Please feel free to leave a comment. The more positive feedback the show receives, the more likely it is that we will see it on the air.

Right: Kevin gets an earful and shoeful from his fictitious directors Quincy Barbara (Matty Finochio) and Jan Bailey (Ali Liebert). This looks like the follow-up to Kevin’s now infamous shoe-sniffing scene!

Screenwriting team Tim Stubinski and Michael Markus, originally from the Ottawa Valley in Canada, knew each other in high school. Tim moved following graduation to work mainly with tax consulting firms while Mike pursued his writing dream, having published a children’s novel and optioned a screenplay before he turned 22.
Tim returned to his hometown of Pembroke in 2001 where the pair reconnected, and at a friend’s suggestion began writing together. Mike’s experience with television and a second published book led them to penning scripts as Tim marketed the duo to film and television companies.
One of those companies was Really Real Films with their script for a half-hour comedy called, “Wolf Canyon,” which they completed on spec for someone else who couldn’t produce it. They took their script to Cynde Harmon for consideration. Cynde and husband Allan loved what they read and decided to produce it, casting talents that include Kevin Sorbo.
Tim and Mike paired to answer some questions for us about “Wolf Canyon” that airs December 25 and 26, on APTN. More… http://sorbowriter.wordpress.com/qa-with-tim-stubinsky-michael-marcus/
