Spartacus: War of the Damned Season 3 gay lovers Agron and Nasir Who's watching this Friday at 9?

[quote]“We’ve had gay characters on the show before, but this was the first time that we could develop the relationship from the very beginning very slowly and actually see them fall in love,” said Spartacus creator Steven S. DeKnight of the love story that began last season with rebel warriors Agron (played with hunky bravado by Dan Feuerriegel) and Nasir (Pana Hema Taylor), a.k.a. ‘Nagron.’

On a press call late last week, DeKnight previewed what we’ll see when the War Of The Damned chapter (the final season in the series) begins airing this Friday on Starz. “We continue exploring their relationship,” he said, adding the tease that “you can’t always have a relationship that goes smoothly. There’s not a lot of drama in that, so we throw a couple of curve balls at them. But theirs is one of the relationships that, I think, is really kind of the cornerstone of the season. There are a lot of relationships going on and theirs, I think, is particularly powerful and gut-wrenching and beautiful.”

I’m surprised that people aren’t commented about Sparty. Nagron is a big part of the show.They aren’t weak, or jokes, but are full on hardcore rebels who fight and fuck.

I'm ready for some more Nagron loving.

Problem: All the livestream sites I used to use are down ( and Anyone know of a stream that airs the Starz channel?

The pretty boy aussie actor Christian Antidormi who plays Tiberius really caught my eye in this first episode. I noticed the grabbing of the arm between he and his best friend in the hallway which was abruptly broken when his mother approached them. Could there be something sexual going on between these two? I hope we see this hottie naked. BTW, nice backside shot of Agron; firm and very muscular buttcheeks.

Give it a chance, R12. I thought same after Andy died, but I'm hooked again. I'll miss Lucy, but I know this thing will steamroll forward at a frenzied pace.

I'm just hoping that the final episode will be a prelude to an equally hot spin-off. This simply can't be the end of the hot naked gladiators having sex with each other!

Here's the video that R46's pic is from.

by Anonymousreply 4702/02/2013

R45 The actor's name is Manu Bennett. His "character's" name is Crixus. Crixus was one of the last to die in the war...not sure how they'll alter it for the show. Anyway, I think Manu is straight, but he comes across as gay friendly in interviews. I youtubed the hell out of his ass. He has a very interesting and sad life story. The story about his scars on his face is very sad.

I hope Nagron survive the war and start a spinoff. They are actual characters so it's possible unless Argon is a mix of another some the other real life Generals.

about Manu

by Anonymousreply 5002/02/2013

R49. The article that R50 linked kinda touched on it, but there's a YouTube (I need to find it) that he talked about that time in his life in greater detail. Basically, when he was between 13/15 (maybe 15) he was in a car accident with his mother and brother. His mom and brother were killed, Manu was throw from the car. He has a scar around his eye were the glass from the windshield cut him and where he hir the ground when he landed. He was in a coma for 8 days or so. That's when (after he recovered) he was sent back to New Zealand. His dad was from there and I guess the relatives on that side felt he needed to learn their culture. Let's see, so he excelled in sports to work out his aggression & anger of losing his mom and brother. He said the ballet helped him be gentle and be close to women to satisfiy the need for his mom. I think he discovered the theater because his GF was in it and the show needed some guys for The Westside story. He ended up enjoying thearter, he said in general it helpled him remain an emotional being.

It's just for the show, Spartacus & crew had other things to worry about. I don't think the show is going for credibility by shaving the pubes, it's better for mass consumption from TPTB standpoint. At least we get clearer cock & ball shots. Straight men are mad they can't see lips, lol!

I really wanted to like this show but I've come to the sad realisation it really is all fur coat, no knickers.

*The hokey cod-Shakespearean / school boy Latin grammar dialogue that's become a parody of itself... *The soft-porn-made-for-hetero-boys-let's-stroke-some-breasts-lesbianism... * The way they show rape as erotically as the sex scenes. Lucy Lawless said ahead of Vengeance that she was in a new relationship through the season. No. Being repeatedly raped isn't being a relationship. WTF?! *The rampant misogyny of all the bitch women bitching the shit out of each other... Even in Dynasty some of the women didn't try to f**k each other over all the time.  *The phony English accents straight out of Auckland, NZ... (Has no one told them?!) *The formulaic 'x' many sex scenes, 'x' many violent's no more sophisticated than the A-Team...  *The box-ticking in pretending to show gay male relationships but keeping it closet / straight fanfic girl friendly... *Just how f**king pleased with themselves they all are. Have you heard the DVD commentaries? The ridiculous hyperbole from the makers - complimenting every shot, every supposed ( bit of subtext...every fricking Jupiter's cock... *The premiere.  Having one.  Like it was a bloody movie blockbuster. It's a TV show. Watched by a comparatively small number of people. It will not be remembered in a couple of years. It's not a classic.

But most of all... MOST OF ALL.. How they've convinced themselves and are trying to convince the audience they're watching it for the story / the art. No. Folk are watching it for the porn. Which is perfectly fine. But let's call a spade a spade.

I feel better for that.

I was saddened by Tiberius having to kill his BFF who saved him during the battle (which Tiberius started though). What bothered me was that the BFF character was so very willing to get killed just so that his beloved Tiberius wouldn't fall from his father's grace further. That's some seriously hardcore blind devotion.

That Caesar guy is really one smart cookie. Only a day in the city and he already has Crixus and Spartacus at each others' throats.

Guess we also found out what the slave did to Caesar with the knife between his legs. The whole infiltration thing was planned well in advance as it seems.

Argo being jealous about the black guy being close to his lover is getting old.

Yes, Tiberius raped Caesar as the guards held Caesar against the table. There was a few seconds of Tiberius thrusting inside Caesar. He must have been a bit rough as the next day, Crassus asked Caesar why he wasn't astride his horse. Oddly, Tiberius later saved Caesar's life on the battlefield. That won't stop Caesar from seeking revenge it would seem.

To me it didn't make much sense for Agron to leave Nasir, just because he couldn't see himself to be a shepherd thanks to him being a warrior all his life.

If he survives he will end up crucified or impaled. I'd rather want him being dead now than watching him dying like that. Or god forbid, Nasir comes by and has to end his misery.

Could someone who knows Roman history tells us which of these characters are real people? We know Spartacus, Caesar and Crassus are. I think I read of Crixus but I am not sure if Agron or the others are real or just made up for the show.

Actually, R178, there's one more episode to go before the series finale.

I was not only sickened by the deaths of Agron & Crixus, but the fact that that nasty little bisexual rapist, Tiberius, killed them both. I would love to see Nasir and Tiberius fight, Nasir subdue Tiberius and rape the fuck out of him before beheading him. Now THAT would be quite a finale!

R180 Crixus was real and he was one of the last to fall. Argon and Nasir are not real people, although I believe Argon is a combo of some of the other lesser known Generals.

I just thought of something. Is it possible that this Tibby is the imfamous Tiberious that raised Calugula? I don't understand why they didn't use Crassus' real son that fought alongside durning that time. Maybe this is the show's way of paving the way for the Ceasar spinoff. There is a Tiberious connection to Ceasar.

AfterElton interview with Christian Antidormi "Tiberius"

AE: Let’s talk about the rape of Caesar. It was so intense to watch, but how was it to film such a scene? CA: It was pretty hard to prepare for something like that. I was grateful to be working with such an amazing actor and person in Todd [Lasance] and T.J. [Scott, director] for directing that brutal scene. It was a challenge, and we really needed to put all of our consciousness aside for that role and just really be in that moment and just prepare ourselves.

There were little moments, like the guards, when they placed a bit of assault on Todd before it happened, that was quite brutal physically in itself. I think that sort of helped to put it all into perspective. We both sort of felt like we were lost out of our bodies at that time [and] we were just completely immersed in the characters. I guess that was pretty intense. I guess at the end of the day, gratifying to have achieved.

AE: How did you and Todd work together throughout most of the season? Most of the time Tiberius and Caesar are butting heads. Do you kind of stay distant from each other or…? CA: We were very close throughout the entire season. I sort of saw him as an older brother to me. We trained together on and off set. We’d be constantly going over our lines and work shopping different ideas.The relationship between myself and Caesar and Crassus was such a crucial triangular element of the show that it really needed to be finessed. It was so good that we could have such a close camaraderie together and work off each other’s ideas. That was great.

Truly spectacular ending and kudos to the producing team for such a beautiful tribute to the memory of Andy Whitfield.

The past two episodes made up for a rather dismal final season. I thought that, after all the time invested, it was difficult to become acquainted with so many new characters this season which were of little interest or empathy. It was a challenge to find motivation for Spartacus as so much had been invested in the back story with his wife. This season, he was just on the run and the wife wasn't really mentioned so much except for the very end of the final episode.

Here's an interview with Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight. I very much recommend listening to the whole interview as it's an interesting, wide-ranging discussion of Spartacus, but if you want to listen to just what he says about gay relationships and Agron/Nasir on the show then you can jump to 54:37.

Steven DeKnight is also working on a new show called Incursion, a sci-fi military drama for Starz. He says that in this show that same-sex relationships will also be a standard part of this world.

'Spartacus' Series Finale: Creator Steven DeKnight Talks Rebel War, Deaths And 'Victory'

In the first 75 minutes of the podcast, I spoke to DeKnight about his vision for the final season and the finale, about interacting with fans and about the show's history. We spoke in depth about "Spartacus'" evolution, its aesthetics and its core message.

The final episode "was really mostly about the characters… and what this whole rebellion meant," DeKnight said. And in typical "Spartacus" fashion, the episode's title, "Victory," could be interpreted in several ways. After all, in the finale, Spartacus and Gannicus die, but a contingent of slaves get away. And Crassus lives, but he must crucify his lover and his son is dead.

"How do you claim victory when you've been defeated? And how do you lose when you've won? That's really the two sides of the coin," DeKnight said. "I think Crassus feels very much in those final moments, there is no final victory. There's absolutely no victory for anyone in this."

Yet DeKnight wanted there to be some hope in the finale, and he accomplished that in part by letting some slaves escape. Among those heading to the mountains (presumably to establish a goat farm): the fan-favorite couple Agron and Nasir.

DeKnight said the show has "always been a grand sweeping love story, it's about Spartacus' love for his wife and many other peoples' love. And it's a tragedy, it's an absolute heartbreaker."

I don't think fans would want it any other way.

If you don't have time to listen to the entire podcast (which, at the end, has a 20-minute discussion of the finale between myself and McGee, whose separate interview with DeKnight goes up here soon), here are some of the highlights:

Speaking of battles, DeKnight had many with Rick Jacobson, who directed the finale. There were "some contentious discussions about that final battle," DeKnight recalled. "It was perhaps the darkest moment on the show, but out of that came fantastic compromises and ideas, and I wouldn't have it any other way. ... [Rick] had so many great ideas, and half of them I absolutely hated [at first]. I finally came around and now I think they're brilliant." One example: Jacobson wanted a scene of Crassus practicing with his men before the battle, DeKnight didn't think it was necessary at first, but he came around. Jacobson also suggested the tent scene between Gannicus and Spartacus, which wasn't in the original script.

The ideas of Laeta being pregnant at the end of the show, or Naevia living and perhaps being revealed as pregnant, were never really considered. "I did not want to go down that path -- to me that felt like a very [cliched] television thing," DeKnight said. "It just didn't feel like the show to me."

We talked quite a bit about the epic journey of Gannicus, and I asked him if he'd always envisioned the heroic path the character eventually embarked on. "When we were doing 'Gods of the Arena,' it was definitely there -- the broad strokes of the grand plan," DeKnight said. "Was it our plan to have him end up like that [i.e. crucified]? No. During the final season, there were many discussions about who was going to end up on the cross," and ultimately they decided to make it "a man who had resisted for so long being part of this movement." Gannicus is a man who "deep down hates himself, and even though he [knows] Oenomaus forgave him, he has to forgive himself."

DeKnight said one of the hardest aspects of every season was thinking up those big twists and shocking moments. That kind of thing was a challenge, but one of the things he enjoyed most was structurally tying the final season to the first. Fans probably have noticed the huge number of callbacks to show's early days in the final seasons, and DeKnight talked about a number of those references in the podcast. "I'm a huge fan of the kind of stories that reference back to themselves and [where] everything ties together and folds in on" itself, he said. "That kind of intricate storytelling is what really excites me the most."

The original plan for Episode 9 had been for Spartacus and his crew to force the Romans to fight each other (as allegedly happened in history). But DeKnight realized it wouldn't be enjoyable for the audience to watch their favorite characters sit on the sidelines for half the episode, so they changed it to gladiators fighting the Romans, and thus recalling the glories of the arena days.

On the passions of fans: "I love the fans dearly, I interact with them all the time but I would never make a creative decision based on fans liking somebody or not liking somebody," DeKnight said. "I think that is such a slippery slope. You have to just tell a good story. If I was listening to the fans, I never would have killed Varro" in Season 1, but we discussed how that moment was a pivotal turning point for the show and for Spartacus as a character.

DeKnight pointed out something that I hadn't thought about: Both Crixus and Spartacus were stabbed in the back by Romans. The similarities of their deaths was intentional, and the idea was that "Rome is a neverending ocean that will eventually get you. They might not be able to take you head on," and the only way they could beat the rebels is by stabbing them in the back, DeKnight said.

I agreed with DeKnight that another whole season of senators taking on Spartacus would have probably become too repetitive. He and the writers condensed many of the historical events involving those Roman foes into the final season, and though DeKnight said he's a "fan" of 10-episode season, I think a couple more episodes, which could have been used to flesh out the Roman side a bit more, might have been advantageous. While it sounded as though he wouldn't have minded a 12-episode season, "you do what you can with what you've got," he said, and added that "it's not a bad thing at all leaving fans wanting just a little bit more."

There's a veiled reference in Episode 9 to the blacklisting of Dalton Trumbo, who wrote the 1960 Kirk Douglas film "Spartacus." The blacklist era was marked by the kind of "naming of names" that could ruin lives -- so DeKnight made the naming of the fallen in "The Dead and the Dying" "a positive naming of names."

He hears this much less now, but in the first couple of seasons, "I was inundated with mostly guys saying, 'I love the show, but can you cut it out with the gay shit?'" DeKnight said. "And my reply was always 'No. If you don't like it, stop watching the show.'" DeKnight talked at length about how he and executive producer Rob Tapert felt strongly about depicting gay characters who were no different from any other characters. "The same-sex characters on our show were just as much manly men as anyone else," DeKnight said. "The only difference is they love someone who's not the opposite sex."

He wanted one couple to survive and walk off into the sunset together, and because no other couples made sense, given the demands of various characters' stories, in a "de facto" way, the surviving pair ended up being Agron and Nasir. "It was important to me -- we had to have a ray of hope at the end of this very sad story," DeKnight said. He is pretty sure "Nagron" fans will be happy that they lived, given that he has been "pelted" with fans who wanted the couple to end up happy and living on a goat farm somewhere. "I think people will be happy to know, they will get their goat farm," DeKnight said.

He has not heard anything about a spinoff for Caesar, and his work schedule would not permit him to be part of such a show, should one come to pass (and to be clear, Starz hasn't said anything about a spinoff). "I'd watch the hell out of that" if it happened, DeKnight said. "I say, 'Godspeed.' I would love to see this world continue. I think it's a fantastic world Rob and I were able to build. and I personally would regret if there wasn't something [more] told in that world."

To learn more about DeKnight's new show, the military drama "Incursion," check out this recent story.

"Spartacus"-speak is hard to write -- each script took him twice as long as non-Sparty scripts he's written. DeKnight said he was glad Starz had the "intestinal fortitude" to stick with the show's "language experiment," which he thinks paid off. "I think the payoff is, I've never been quoted so much," DeKnight said. "I've even seen people with tattoos of lines from my scripts. There's nothing that's a better validation that we did the right thing than to see somebody with your words tattooed on their body."

The question he was asked most by fans: What is Spartacus' real name? "I always respond, what name would make a difference?" DeKnight said. "The great thing about the story is that nobody knows his name. In that way, he becomes everyone. He stands for every man who stands against oppression."

The idea to feature Andy Whitfield saying "I am Spartacus" at the end of the finale came from Tapert. "I thought it was brilliant. ... We definitely wanted to acknowledge Andy's contribution to the show, and his absence is felt every day we worked on the show." That image, by the way, came from a scene in the seventh episode of Season 1.

Tapert also came up with the closing montage of "Spartacus" characters from every season.

My colleague Laura Prudom has been posting exclusive video interviews with "Spartacus" cast members every week. Don't miss this week's final installment, featuring Liam McIntyre. The other videos can be found with the rest of HuffPost TV's "Spartacus" coverage.

The entire podcast interview with DeKnight can be found here, on iTunes and below.

One last thing -- here's a short list of things I'll miss about "Spartacus:" Crazy eyes; Sparty-speak; slow-mo blood; incisive critiques of multiple forms of oppression; gay love; people jumping down from or up to things (often with crazy eyes); committed performances; badass feminism; entertaining profanity; the Undefeated Gaul; oiled torsos; crazy surprises and twists; rousing speeches; Syrians; so much hot damned manflesh; the tender romance of it all; epic deaths; lunatic Germans; inventive violence; and of course, "Jupiter's cock!"

Season 3 was my least favorite, getting a little sappy, plus the inevitable sad conclusion that had to match history. One of the producers was Sam Raimi of Evil Dead fame. He's making Evil Dead into a series with the original Ash, Bruce Campbell. With Starz' reputation for total sex and violence depravity (certainly with the glorious Sparticus,) Raimi will be able to give his classic work the treatment it deserves.
