Liam McIntyre and Lucy Lawless Fit For Spartacus Vengeance
Over on Access Hollywood Live, Liam McIntyre and Lucy Lawless showed up for an interview and we have a clip from the episode embedded down below. For all intents and purposes though, let’s just pretend Lucy Lawless isn’t even there since the video is all about McIntyre’s appearance in Starz’ Spartacus: Vengeance. If you want to know anything about Lawless and her character Lucretia then I suggest you take a look at this piece in Entertainment Weekly.
Apparently McIntyre went to the extreme to get in shape for the role of Spartacus. He says that he lost roughly 45 lbs, or a fifth of his body weight, for an unspecified role. He then had to gain that weight back on top of building a sufficient amount of muscle to play Spartacus. That’s a lot of abuse for one man’s body. Christian Bale went through a similar process twice before. He lost a lot of weight for The Machinist and then had to turn around and get ripped for Batman Begins, and then the same happened when he did The Fighter and now he’s doing The Dark Knight Rises. I could never put my body through those kinds of regimens. I like my weight to stay consistent, but they’re actors and committed actors at that.
As I’m sure you know, McIntyre is the second man to play Spartacus in the series. He’s replacing Andy Whitfield who had to drop out of production due to his cancer returning. Spartacus: Vengeance is expected to premiere at the end of January 2012.
