More Kevin Sorbo Groovy Movie News

Hi, guys. Kevin’s been really, really busy attending Sci-Fi conventions worldwide, playing in golf tournaments to help raise funds and awareness for various charities, speaking at public events regarding his strokes and awesome book, True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal–and How Nearly Dying Saved My Life, and making some fantastic movies that we can’t wait to see!

Here are some brief bits and photos regarding his latest films:

The Whole Banana

**This project is on indefinite hold**

“The Whole Banana,” based on Deb Norton’s popular eponymous play, stars Kevin alongside Dean Cain, Kristy Swanson and Matthew Perry. The film, written by Deb Norton and Valerie Levett and directed by Stephen Wallis, promises to be great fun!

The plot entails struggling artist Fran (Swanson) who is so discouraged by the men in her life that she often prays to the Greek god Hermes (Sorbo) for guidance. Hermes, enamored by her appeals, ventures into Fran’s life and sweeps her off her feet.

Unfortunately for Fran, Hermes only has two weeks on earth.

Two weeks with Kevin Sorbo? Is that really enough?? Look for this film’s release in December of next year.

Shadow on the Mesa

Wes, a gunfighter with a dark reputation, believes his long-lost father abandoned them before he was born, and now he believes his father has had Wes’ half-breed mother murdered. In 1883, Wes, in tracking his father, charges into a violent range war fueled by the evil wife of his father as he discovers a half-brother and a difficult and testy stepsister. As Wes learns the truth from a hermit and interaction with his discovered family, he finds redemption and love.

Christmas Angel

Every year before Christmas break, the students in Olivia Mead’s class present “My Impossible Christmas Wish” papers, but this year, something unusual is happening. the wishes are coming true. Olivia takes note, because she has a truly impossible wish – for a dad of her own, a husband for her single mom. A complete family. Olivia is soon convinced the answers are linked to a mysterious woman who she believes is an angel. Olivia discovers the mysterious woman, Elsie Waybright (Della Reese) is no angel, and she has plenty of secrets to keep, but she does have the answer to how the Christmas wishes came true. Her unlikely friendship with Olivia shows them both that anyone can be an angel to others, but when the wishes get truly impossible, good angels take the requests to God and not into their own hands.

    I wrote this for a Nursing Doctor I greatly respect — but I am sharing it with this “BLOG” site because I have had a Stroke and I thoroughly his book “True Strength”, and would like to write him a letter but Kevin Sorbo’s email address isn’t readily available. …………. So if blog message is forwarded it would be alright for me…….. My email address is — ccgeorge2@hotmail.com

    Stroke Progressions

    When they took me home from the VA, I’d spent two months in there, and they taught me how to walk again — I was a babe

    I progressed in speech therapy and in walking until they told me they had done enough and cut me loose — I was then a Toddler

    I progressed in walking until I thought it was time to go back to the gym so my right hand would be more than an ornament — at that point I was a child

    I went back to the VA when I thought it was time I learned how to drive a car again, those were the longest 8 hours and a half hour days of my life (it took me 8 times of driving a car). Then I met with the BMV and showed them I could safely drive a car again, the BMV driver told me I was finished and I only went once around the block, it was almost a let down for me …. ALMOST!!!

    Now I am a teenager, who I might add, drives with a “Spinner” on the steering wheel, and a block for my right foot and the gas is transferred to my left foot. —- I have to look at my right hand when I am trying to move it anywhere in the car, so using my right hand to drive again was out………That is why it was so tough to learn how to drive again — everything now on the LEFT side instead of my right side ………….

    Without my wife in my life I would never have accomplished the many Progressions of having a Stroke I have gone through. I watch a show on the Discovery Channel called “Dual Survival” and I feel that show is appropriately named for my having a Stroke too.

    At a point in the year 2013, I will start studying your tapes again —- and I have started reading the book you suggested called “Cutting For Stone” and I recently finished a book by Kevin Sorbo called — “True Strength” — about the several strokes he has had and how he got through them, and he didn’t get through them without his wife he calls “Sam” —- anyone that has a severe stroke needs someone else in their lives to help them keep on go on, or they will shrivel up and die while lying there …………..

    I hope for the best for you, Craig (although your comment was off topic).

    Back to the subject at hand… 😉

    Like Rhonda, I’m looking forward to these films very much. It’ll be great to see Kevin work with Kristy Swanson again in “The Whole Banana,” as I enjoyed them in “What If… ”

    As for “Shadow on the Mesa,” I’m hoping to have access to the Hallmark Movie Channel to see it. Kevin works well with director Dave Cass Sr. (see “Avenging Angel”), but I hope that “Mesa” won’t suffer the same fate as “Prairie Fever,” way too much editing. I’m especially looking forward to seeing the dynamics between Kevin’s Ray Eastman, Gail O’Grady’s Nona Eastman (Ray’s wife), and Wes Brown’s Wes Rawlins (Ray’s son).

    As I don’t know where “Christmas Angel” might be airing on the small screen, I’ll make plans to get the DVD. I look forward to seeing Kevin with Della Reese, and the story sounds like a faith-based holiday heartwarmer; the writer of this film co-wrote “What If… ” and has the same distributor (Pure Flix).

    Bring ’em on! I can’t wait to see what Kevin does next. 🙂

    “Christmas Angel” will be available on DVD (standard & Blu-ray) on October 23rd. Amazon already has it available for preorder: http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Angel-Kevin-Sorbo/dp/B008EFDC6M

    The syndicated TV entertainment news magazine “Access Hollywood” reported on their website that “Christmas Angel” will debut on GMC (the Gospel Music Channel) on Dec. 1st, at 7pm ET, with encore airings later that night (9pm & 11pm ET). It’s the same outlet that carried the TV debut of Kevin’s award-winning “What If… ”

    The official press release:

    Bad news for me since my cable system doesn’t offer GMC. 😦 I’ll get the DVD asap. 😉

      There is also a trailer for “Christmas Angel” available on Pure Flix’s YouTube channel:

      Kevin plays Dr. Nathan Davis, the property owner where the “wishing house” sits. Davis is described as “a cynical man who has been beaten down by tragic events in his life.”

      The trailer is 2:30 in length & Kevin looks great in it. I can’t wait to get the Blu-ray version asap!
