PHOTOS: Ten Sexy Sword-And-Sandal Studs From Television And Film

Tomorrow marks the arrival of Spartacus: Vengeance, the newest chapter in Starz’ acclaimed action/drama franchise set in the world of ancient Greece Rome (although you can watch the first episode online now for free.) Seeing the ubiquitous trailers for the show (there’s probably one on your screen right now) made us cast our thoughts back to some of our favorite screen Olympians from years gone by. So we pulled together a veritable Who’s Who of toga-wearing, sword-wielding, arena-fighting hunks from the big and small screen.

Obviously this is a personal list—Russell Crowe in Gladiator did nothing for us, sorry. Who’s your favorite oiled-up Greco-Roman? Thrust thy mighty saber into the comment section!

      Clash of the Titans was a great movie. Bloody ridiculous by today’s standards, but its oldness was funny in its own right. This is a sixteen year saying that this movie was good. Which is slightly weird, I suppose…

      Steve Reeves! Such form, such elegance, and he could even act a bit.

      I just watched the first episode of Spartacus:Vengeance. It honestly feels like a different show. I’m sure Liam Macyntyre will grow on me but it just isn’t the same without Andy.

      Spartacus is set in ancient Rome, not ancient Greece…

      Harry Hamlin a twink? Are you psycho? The guy is a total stud. Twinks are usually under developed often effeminate obvious gay generally skinny guys. Please don’t defame a historical heart throb hot good looking hunky masculine superstar with such a blase reference.

      Uh, the “ancient times” had indoor plumbing. The aqueducts carried water into Roman households and lead pipes were used to transport water and waste. How do you think all those public baths filled their tubs?

      @TMikel: Steve was the biggest swish in Hollywood, they had to dub his nelly voice over.

      What about Russel Crowe from Gladiator? I miss Andy from Spartacus, he was the man.

      Ah all that Antiquated hotness does one good! Sam Worthington was quite lovely in the Clash of the Titans remake.

      Haha ok. I must agree Sam Worthington is a cum shot w/o touching. Def missed him in this batch. He was soooooo hot in that little thing he wore in Clash of ….. those legs ………!

      Russell Crowe is ok but I guess he might rate this crew.

      I had THE BEASTMASTER on VHS when I was a kid. Marc Singer was pretty much naked through the whole movie. Hot stuff in the early 80s.
