(CHRISTIANPOST) — Actor Kevin Sorbo who starred in the Christian film, “God’s Not Dead,” says he did not have reservations about taking on an atheist role for the movie but he admits that he does not understand the logic behind atheist’s lack of beliefs and why they are “so angry.”

Sorbo, who is most famous for the ’90s TV series “Hercules,” played an atheist professor in the film whose belief system is challenged by one of his Christian students. He recently sat down with Access Hollywood Live to discuss the film’s success and his take on skeptics.

“I’m a Christian myself and had to play an atheist. I see the anger of these (atheist) guys on TV and it’s like ‘wow, how do you get so angry at something you don’t believe in?” said Sorbo.

Get “God’s Not Dead,” the new Christian film starring Kevin Sorbo, direct from WND.

He added, “What’s interesting is that people say students don’t get persecuted in universities because of their beliefs but it does happen. What’s the big deal? I’m a ‘live and let live’ kind of guy. If you’re an atheist, fine. If you’re agnostic, we can talk. This movie is not to preach to the choir, we wanted the choir to come and obviously they did.”
