Joseph Fiennes and Eva Green go to cable for Camelot

100%

It's not quite "The Sopranos", but I've gotta hand it to the original programming on Starz -- the cringe-comedy "Party Down" is hilarious, and while I was prepared to write off "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" as merely a blatant 300 knockoff (and it is), it turned out to be consistently compelling and surprising as it redefined the word "gratuitous". (You can stream it on Netflix and see for yourself.)

So I'm automatically interested in Starz's upcoming "Camelot" series, especially when it draws talent like Eva Green (CASINO ROYALE) and Joseph Fiennes (recently liberated from "FlashForward").

Described as "a contemporary retelling of the Arthurian legend", the series will star Jamie Campbell Bower as the young Arthur. Bower is best known as Anthony in SWEENEY TODD and Caius Volturi in TWILIGHT: NEW MOON, and his "Camelot" Guinevere will be played by Tamsin Egerton (ST. TRINIAN'S). Green plays sexy sorceress Morgana and Fiennes has the key role of wizard Merlin.

The series will begin airing in early 2011.

Extra Tidbit: If it follows the form of "Spartacus", it should be excessively stylish, melodramatic and ridiculous. I can't wait.

Be interesting to see how much the tone of this differs from the late 90s Sam Neill/Helena Bonham Carter mini series 'Merlin', which focused on the Merlin/Morgana connection.

Nice mention of Spartacus: B&S

People who put down the show don't mean a damn to me, I love it, thats all that matters. The series really found it's own "thing" and I see it as a funky hybrid of 300 and Rome. I'll check out Camelot just on principle, I'm sure it just won't follow Spartacus template.

I'm with VitamanMan

Based on Blood and Sand's 14 year old boy / 18 year old minimum demographic, I'll hold fire, but Eva Green is always a plus in my book.

I'm going to wait until we hear more about this until I decide whether or not I have an opinion.
