Spartacus: Vengeance Exclusive 'Blooper': Wait, Our Protagonist and Crixus Said What?!

manu bennett spartacusIt’s not every day you get to see the full-on comedic chops of the cast of Starz’ Spartacus: Vengeance, but in this exclusive outtake from the episode “Chosen Path,” Liam McIntyre (as the titular hero) and Manu Bennett (Crixus) engage in a little bit of improvisation so deadpan, Larry David himself might be impressed.

For the uninitiated, the scene takes place after the rebels burn down the arena, and Gannicus escapes with Spartacus and the rest of his crew. Spartacus, interested in recruiting Gannicus to join the cause, asks Crixus for his opinion. The dialogue, as intended, is supposed to go as follows:

Spartacus: What is your opinion of the man?
Crixus: He is a champion, as we once stood. A boon to your cause.
Spartacus: He has expressed doubts towards it.
Crixus: As have we all.

On this particular take, however, things start to go off the rails at the :16 mark. If you weren’t paying close attention, you might not even know you were watching the opening scene of the “Bloopers” featurette that will be included as part of Spartacus: Vengeance –The Complete Second Season, coming to Blu-ray and DVD on Sept. 11. The three-disc set will also include all 10 episodes from the season, a ‘Making of’ featurette, behind-the-scenes, on-set footage with Liam McIntyre, and more.
