TrekToday - Calgary Sun 'Andromeda' Interview

Calgary Sun 'Andromeda' Interview

Tyler McLeod at the Calgary Sun has put up an article on 'Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda', talking to both series star Kevin Sorbo (Dylan Hunt) and executive producer Majel Barrett-Roddenberry. One of the things Sorbo talks about is how he changed for this role after 'Hercules', losing almost 20 lbs. in the process:

"I dropped the weight, I'm lean and mean, but I'm still in shape. I can still kick butt. After working out 80 hours a week and going to the gym every darn day for seven seasons, I just said, you know what? Why can't I just have a different physicality?"

Not surprisingly though, Sorbo is planning to let Keith Hamilton Cobb, who plays Tyr Anasazi, handle the rippling muscles department: "He's about 6-ft.-5 and 265 (lbs.). He's got about 2% body fat on him -- he's huge! He can do the one-armed pullups. I'll just watch."

However, in the interview Majel Roddenberry indicates that Sorbo doesn't have much chance of that, laughing that "as the producer, I can say his shirt is going to be off just as often as I can get there."
