I confess I have not caught up with the latest season of Spartacus. If it’s not available online (legally), I usually kind of fall behind on a lot of shows. Plus, we all know I’ve had a bit of a whirlwind affair catching up with seasons 1 and 2 of The Vampire Diaries. It doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate these photos that recently showed up on my inbox.
That’s right. My favorite beefcakes on television training for their roles. What could be better eye candy?
The actors go through about 4 weeks of boot camp and intensive training to get into “gladiator shape” before actual production of the show. If you’ve watched the series, you know the action sequences are quite intense and they prepare the cast members for it — to make sure no one pulls a muscle while shoving a spear into somebody’s eyeball, of course!
Of course, it’s not just the guys who get to have all the bad ass fun! Check out Ellen Hollman (Saxa) doing the “Fireman” pick up.
