What channel is Rome on?

Page Six lets us know that Rome star James Purefoy’s sexuality is pretty freewheeling. Rock on, Jimmy!

BRITISH actor James Purefoy doesn’t open up to Out magazine on why he quit halfway through the production of “V for Vendetta” – but he does open up about his sexuality. Purefoy told the mag that while he’s straight, he will “never say never” when it comes to having sex with a man. “Anyone who went to an English [private] school in the 1970s will have had some kind of a gay experience,” he said. “You bang 500 adolescent hormonal boys together at exactly the time when they’re exploring their sexuality, and don’t be surprised if some shenanigan comes out of it.”

So let me get this straight. The show stars an straight actor who admittedly likes to putt from the rough occasionally and I assume it features a lot of gladiators fighting and men in skirts bouncing on horses? Sign me up.

    Rome is a lot of fun. Great villainesses (I’m Team Atia) and Purefoy gets naked. Full Frontal. A lot. Plus lots of sex, violence, and this interesting thing called “history” presented in a non sleep inducing way. Costumes are beautiful, the whole thing is shot in Italy, and it’s gorgeous. And no, I don’t work for HBO and never would cause those bastards cancelled my Deadwood. Rome is back in January.

    It’s totally a hot, badass show. Between Rome and The Wire, HBO is definitely worth the extra scratch on the cable bill.

    Sadie – Team Atia all the way! Servillia is a crazy bitch. And the show was criminally overlooked during awards season. As was the Wire. What else is new. *sigh*
