ABC may have put the breaks on the sci-fi drama “FlashForward” but that hasn’t stopped Joseph Fiennes’ career from flourishing. The British actor has landed a new gig in a series for the Starz cable network called, “Camelot.” If you’re a fan of their current golden goose “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” we’re sure you’ll like this one…
“Camelot” will take on the very famous story of King Arthur. Fiennes will play Merlin the Wizard while Eva Green will star as the sorceress Morgana. Also joining the party is Jamie Campbell-Bower (New Moon) who’ll play a young Arthur and Tamsin Egerton as Guinevere. Production on the series begins this month and the show is slated to air in early 2011.
Even though the story of King Arthur has been beaten to a bloody pulp, I’m slightly interested in what this show has to offer. This will be Green’s first major TV role, which is intriguing and I’m excited to see how Campbell-Bower will pull off playing the king. The personalities of the characters is what will really set them apart. Morgana has always been a good foil to Merlin and even though Fiennes’ acting bores me to tears I want to see him go toe to toe with Green.
What do you think of the cast for Camelot? Are you interested in watching?
