TV-series (CBS), 1995-..., episode 1.11 "The Last Temptation of Cybill"

 

10.04.95 on the air -- Director: Robert Berlinger - Screenwriters: Elaine Aronsohn & Lee Aronsohn (story by Mike Langworthy & Michael Dempsey)

 

"Cybill and Ira's second chance faces a Herculean challenge when handsome young actor Rick takes his love-scene very seriously."

 

"And although it's hard to imagine Sorbo's big frame - 6-foot-3, 215 pounds - stepping lightly through comedic patter, he did just that in a guest stint on the hit CBS sitcom 'Cybill' last spring." (3.12.95 Austin American-Statesman)

 

During the rehearsal with young and attractive co-star Rick (Kevin Sorbo), Cybill (Cybill Shepherd) becomes engaged with the thing, when her handsome colleague tells her he thinks he's in love with her. So then Cybill, who just started dating her ex-husband Ira again, completely forgets the planned dinner-party with him. The last has possibility to observe Rick and her with the test of a kiss scene and gets jealous - not without reason, as 'the fruit of another' is sweet to the taste. After a stormy discussion with Ira Cybill passes up the role and Rick, only to be re-cast by Zsa Zsa Gabor (Zsa Zsa Gabor playing herself - Date of Birth: 1916).

 

Great thanks to Anne from "Sorbo Dreams" for all Rick' screencaps

 

Kevin Sorbo: "I played a small part in 'Cybill', in which I was Zsa Zsa Gabor's sex slave." (3.12.96 Unknown source)

 

 

"Now we know why Sorbo makes so much sense playing a superhuman half-god for the '90s: He survived a bedroom scene with Zsa Zsa Gabor. And you thought the mythic hero stuff was tough. See what kinds of torment actor have to suffer in a guest shot on 'Cybill'? Sorbo's appearance on the sitcom - as a Cybill Shepherd co-star who falls for all his leading ladies (even if, like Zsa Zsa, they're old enough to have starred in the original '50s Hercules movies) - simply confirmed for other viewers what the fast-growing audience of his H:TLJ already knew. Sorbo isn't only large, built, cute and warmly charismatic. He's also got a cheery, casual sense of humor." (11.05.95 Newsday)

 

Q: You guested on "Cybill" with Zsa Zsa Gabor. Did Zsa Zsa make a pass?
Kevin Sorbo: You know what? She likes her men. The scene had me sitting in a bed with little briefs on. Zsa Zsa arrives in this big white chiffon number and starts yellilng, "Where is my stud?" She gets in bed and we did two takes. The director goes, "Great. We're done." Zsa Zsa, who is really bummed, goes, "That's it?" I said, "That's what all the women say to me." Zsa Zsa kept grabbing me, but it was all in fun.
Q: Did Cybill make a pass?
Kevin Sorbo: She's a good kisser. The only bad part is that her boyfriend [musician Robert Martin] was always on the set.
