What do you do when you have a TV show about a family of superheroes and you need someone to play a "powerful woman" who will be a "potential adversary" for them? Well, you cast Lucy "Xena" Lawless, of course!
Starz's Spartacus is many things. It's a gripping violent drama with sweeping historical and political scope; it has sex aplenty (and equal opportunity nudity, thank you very much); but most of all, it has a lot of bloody and gory killings where the blood flows and flows and, well, flows.
Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) may be the star of the show and the main leader of the rebels (alongside Manu Bennett's Crixus and Dan Feuerriegel's Agron), but the more playful Gannicus (Dustin Clare) is the character that most resonates with many fans. So, how about a bloody, sexy new video that shows what our loin-clothed boy will be up to in Spartacus: War of the Damned?
Spartacus: War of the Damned is coming and we've got an exciting new trailer to share with you as well as two new videos featuring season three's new fascinating villains (including Julius Caesar and the until now elusive Marcus Crassus) and our not-so-merry band of rebels still resisting again and again Rome's long shadow.
Next year, Starz's hit gladiator series Spartacus will fight its last battle with a third and final season subtitled War of the Damned. This show's never been exactly subtle about the sword-swinging mayhem it delivers, but from the looks of this bloody badass new trailer, the third season's set to be the most intense.
We see a lot of death on our favorite genre TV shows. Villains go down, henchmen meet gruesome ends, monsters fall, heroes make brave sacrifices. Blood is spilled, bodies pile up, and we keep watching. But which of those shows is actually the deadliest? The rankings may prove surprising.
Looks like Starz really has faith in its new Spartacus (Liam McIntyre), because the hit series has just been renewed for a third season that'll probably be filled again with lots more sex, sand and blood. So tie up your sandals and get your swords and loincloths ready.
Andy Whitfield, the actor who played Spartacus on Starz's series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, was diagnosed with cancer after shooting the first season. Starz waited for him to undergo treatment and hopefully reprise his role ... but the cancer came back.
