Short Takes: Alex Castro Returns to TV

Militia is back for another fight. Former American Gladiator star (and onetime COLT model) Alex Castro is returning to TV (and now billed as Alexander) as the star of a new eight-part series on History Channel titled Battles BC. The show features ancient warriors (Castro plays Rome’s nemesis Hannibal) and re-creates some of the most brutal battles in history. It mixes animation, graphics and live action to produce a graphic novel–style that brings to mind the hit movie 300. From the clips we’ve seen, the muscle hunk still knows how to swing his sword! Battles BC airs Mondays at 9 pm ET on History Channel and repeats throughout the week.
