Bob Heisler at the New York Daily News has put up a new interview with Kevin Sorbo, star of the upcoming 'Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda' series. In the interview, Sorbo talks about the differences between 'Hercules' and 'Andromeda', and his reasons for signing on as Hunt:

Sorbo said he was negotiating to do a series for CBS after "Hercules," but the gig on "Andromeda" came with a two-year guarantee. "It would be silly not to go for this because I think this is going to be the same, but completely different from other futuristic shows that have been done before, and that are out there currently," he said.

He also understands that a syndicated show has made him a star around the world. "I don't know," he said. "I don't think it's such a bad way to go.… And I certainly believe this could continue the trend of Gene Roddenberry shows going into feature film. "

In the full interview, Sorbo also mentions he doesn't see how the series, which has a two-year commitment, could possibly miss, with both the 'Hercules' and the 'Star Trek' audience following to Andromeda.
