The nude dude in question is Andy Whitfield, an Australian actor and former model who is breaking out in the title role. Lawless recently told Entertainment Weekly (see clip below) that you get to see the full bait and tackle on the premium cable show. She also says that she was “traumatized” by being exposed to it. Ah, if only we had her issues!
Like most gladiator fare, Whitfield spends lots of the time shirtless and fighting (just check out all the manboob that’s in the trailer below). Sure, this is kind of like budget “300,” but Whitfield looks like a million bucks, so that’s all that matters. Too bad we’re going to have to wait until January 2010 to polish our swords.
