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

The cable action drama "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" continued with two PR alums amongst the cast in its second episode titled "Sacramentum Gladiatorum." Former Red Ranger Eka Darville (Scott, RPM) made his debut as Pietros, a slave boy who is kept in the gladiator training compound known as the ludus. Pietros can be seen throughout this episode as Spartacus is introduced to the world of gladitor training. Pietros can be seen giving a massage to the gladiator Barca in his first scene. He later helps with training the new recruits by passing them weapons on command. Pietros can also be seen in the background with Barca, while the gladiators have a meal. Darville plays a small background role and had no lines in this episode. Ninja Storm voice actor Craig Parker (voice of Motodrone, Ninja Storm) reprises his role as Spartacus' nemesis, Claudius Glaber from the first episode of the series. Glaber visits the ludus and taunts Spartacus over enslaving his wife and vowing that he will die a slow death as a Gladiator. With Glaber watching, Spartacus finds the desire to fight and kill to save his wife.
