Craig Parker on "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" (2010)

Ninja Storm voice actor Craig Parker (voice of Motodrone, Ninja Storm) continues his streak of villainous roles on the new cable series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand." While continuing his role as the villain Darken Rahl on "Legend of the Seeker," Parker now also portrays Claudius Glaber the Roman soldier who leads an army of volunteers from Trace, which include the legendary gladiator Spartacus. When Spartacus and his men refuse to continue under Glaber's orders so they can return home after learning of an upcoming attack there, Spartacus & Glaber become instant enemies. Glaber personally seizes Spartacus and his wife, sentencing her to slavery out of revenge. Spartacus is taken prisoner and forced into fighting for his life as a gladiator. Glaber's motives stem from trying to impress his wife's father, Senator Albinius who does not favor him. Oddly enough, Albinius is played by Kevin J. Wilson who appeared on "Legend of the Seeker" as Darken Rahl's main henchman General Egremont.

"Spartacus: Blood and Sand" currently airs on STARZ
