Spartacus: War of the Damned alum Simon Merrells has been cast as Julius Caesar for an upcoming episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, reports CBR.
"We start out in 2017, obviously,” showrunner Phil Klemmer told CBR of the upcoming season. "But we’re going to take a trip back to Ancient Rome. We’re going to have Simon Merrells - he played Julius Ceaser’s [patron Crassus] on Spartacus - who’s going to be playing Julius Ceasar on our show.”
Like many in the DC-CW shows, Merrell was in a previous Greg Berlanti-produced show - The Tomorrow People.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow begins its third season on Tuesday, October 10 at the CW.
