Kevin: (revealing he is angry at director Sam Raimi, for not casting him in any of his Spider-Man films) I busted my ass on Hercules and I almost died doing it. I had an aneurysm that exploded in my body that almost killed me. I think I'm a good enough actor that he can put me in a secondary part in one of his feature films. It would be nice if he did that. I think he's holding a grudge over me. He wanted me to do a movie back in 1996 when I decided to do Kull the Conqueror. ... Quite frankly, the movie was horrible. It is very infantile from a guy who's as powerful as he is and as wealthy as he is. Throw me a bone. Why not let me do something?
Reporter: Did you watch the new Hercules DVD set?
Kevin Sorbo: I watched a few of them not too long ago to do some commentary. I haven't seen the episodes in years so it was weird to look back on them.

Kevin: "Mercenary" is one that is in my top-ten. That was Michael's directorial debut.
