‘Spartacus’ Creator Talks About the ‘Epic’ New Season and the Trailer for ‘Vengeance’

Filed under: ,

Starz has finally released the ‘Spartacus: Vengeance’ trailer that the network showed at Comic-Con, and I’ve posted it below for your viewing pleasure.

I also interviewed ‘Spartacus’ executive producer and creator, Steven DeKnight, on Friday, and though I’ll post the majority of the interview closer to the show’s January premiere, but share some of his responses regarding the epic scope of the new season. First question: Did the show have the resources to properly depict Spartacus’ post-ludus life on the run with his fellow escaped slaves?

“We definitely have quite a bit more money than we did in the past seasons and it shows,” DeKnight said of the 10-episode season. “I mean, just look at the trailer. That one shot of a mine with a thousand people working in it gives you an idea the scope that we’re going for.”

Carrie-Anne Moss Brings Her ‘Matrix’ Pedigree to ‘Chuck’

Filed under:

Trinity is coming to ‘Chuck.’ Well, not exactly, but ‘Matrix’ actress Carrie-Anne Moss will be joining the fifth and final season of NBC’s hit spy comedy in a recurring role, according to a report in TVLine.

Moss will play Gertrude Verbanski, a deadly owner of a private spy firm that’s in competition with Chuck and Sarah’s new operation. TVLine reports that Moss’s character will be a romantic foil and rival to John Casey, and that casting breakdowns describe her as “Miranda Priestly meets Lara Croft, with a rather wicked sense of humor.”

Moss joins a pantheon of sci-fi legends ‘Chuck’ has been able to recruit as guest stars. Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in ‘Star Wars,’ signed on for the Season 5 premiere earlier this week. Other luminaries have included as James Bond (Timothy Dalton), Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton), Superman (Brandon Routh), Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) and Number Six (Tricia Helfer).
