Kevin Sorbo: 'Weird' that Sean Penn Has to 'Dive Into' El Chapo's World

Kevin Sorbo tells Newsmax TV  he doesn't understand why his fellow actor Sean Penn felt the need to interview Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, but noted that it plays into his past of embracing former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

"It's weird to me that he has to feel like he has to dive in that world," Sorbo said in an interview aired Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show." "I don't know if it's a character study for him, maybe he's going to play him in a movie.

"He's the same guy that went down to Hugo Chavez, right? Him and Danny Glover, because communism is such a great thing," Sorbo said. "But it's amazing to me that people that promote communism and socialism the most are worth like $100 million. They could afford to be communists, they don't live like the rest of the people that are forced to live under those sort of regimes."

Sorbo said he met Penn once, but doesn't think the leftist actor was too happy about Sorbo's politics which lean more to the right.

Sorbo said he likes Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the GOP presidential race. He said front-runner Donald Trump had his best debate yet last week.

Cruz's comment on "New York values" clearly was intended to mean liberal worldviews and not the aftermath of 9/11, Sorbo said.

"I'm not like being surprised that New Yorkers came together at that time," he said. "But let's face it, every city has its own personal vibe, every city thinks they're better than the other city, New York thinks they're the center of the world and in a way, kind of are."

Sorbo's latest movie, "Caged No More," focuses on sex trafficking in the United States.

"People don't realize how big it is. I didn't either," he said. "I read the script and I was sitting there going, really? This is this big a problem in the States? It's huge in the States. Every 30 seconds, somebody falls into this world."
