    What is Hollywood’s fascination with casting English people as Romans? Every movie and tv show made in Hollywood has Romans speaking with English accents, well except for the one that Channing Tatum was in lol. Get someone with an Italian accent, it’ll sound better.

    • Rex the Wonder Dog says:

      Probably has something to do with William Shakespeare writing “Julius Caesar”. Through the centuries people in English speaking countries people got used to the idea of English actors playing Romans. So now it seems unnatural for a Roman to speak with anything but an English accent. Besides, do we really know what kind of accent Roman had 2,000 years ago? Latin is a dead language and Italy has been conquered so many times since that what-ever original accent the people had has long been altered.

    Crap I was hoping Shameless would go back to January. The past few years I’ve really enjoyed the Shameless marathons that aired around New Years leading up to the premiere. I know I can watch it on Netflix or Showtime Anytime but it’s not the same.

  4. so they cast Crassus to portray Caesar. Fun!
