Meet the Sexy Stars of New Netflix Series 'Marco Polo'

12 December 2014 5:26 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The stars of Netflix's potential new binge-watching obsession, Marco Polo, stopped by the Et set to talk about the historical drama and the countless shirtless scenes.

Italian actor Lorenzo Richelmy, 24, is poised to become Hollywood's newest heartthrob for playing Marco Polo in the 10-hour series, but he doesn't believe he's worthy of the distinction.

News: Marco Polo Stars on Going Totally Nude for Netflix

"I don't think I'm beautiful enough to be a sex symbol," Lorenzo told Et's Brooke Anderson. "I think I have a good face for the screen, but I'm not like Leonardo DiCaprio or Brad Pitt. They're super beautiful. I'm more of a rough beauty."

Lorenzo's fans may beg to differ once they get a load of his shirtless scenes. The young star is bare chested for a good portion of the series and even appears nude at one point. He filled us in on the fitness regimen that he undertook to get ready »

Netflix's 'Marco Polo' trailer transports you to 13th century China

1 December 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Marco Polo was a man who spent 25 years and 15,000 miles traveling the Silk Road and successfully navigating the inner court of Mongol Emperor Kublai Khan. Yet he has been diminished to a phrase to be shrieked by children at public pools across the country. Netflix is hoping to change that.  The streaming service will add “Marco Polo” to their roster of original shows. In keeping with tradition, all ten episodes will air at once. This way fans of historical fiction can binge watch at their leisure. Ahead of the Dec. 12 release, the $90 million epic — making it one of the most expensive shows ever produced — dropped its first trailer amid the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving. The show stars Lorenzo Richelmy, Chin Han, Mahesh Jadu, Shu An Oon, Vanessa Vanderstraaten, Rick Yune, and Nicholas Bloodworth. Netflix has a daunting task in front of them with "Marco Polo," as Western media has »

Full-Length Trailer for New Netflix Series Marco Polo Is Light on Pooltime Horseplay

17 November 2014 1:50 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Netflix has unveiled the full-length Marco Polo trailer after the first teaser debuted online a few weeks ago.  The new original series follows the titular explorer’s adventures throughout the 13th century in the court of Kublai Khan, the ruler of the Mongol Empire.  Acting as the ruler’s spy, ambassador, and explorer, Marco treks across the Far East, resulting in a story filled with greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue, and rivalry.  While this trailer once again teases the massive scope and gorgeous landscapes of the show (Kon-Tiki and Pirates 5 helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg directed the first two episodes), there are some more character-centric shots that are less impressive.  Regardless, I’m curious to see if Netflix’s first “large-scale period epic” original series is a success. Check out the new Marco Polo trailer after the jump.  The series stars Lorenzo RichelmyBenedict WongJoan ChenChin HanZhu Zhu, »

Netflix's Marco Polo Teaser Trailer: War and Sex Abound in Ancient China

28 October 2014 7:38 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Worlds will collide,” Netflix touts in the first official teaser for its upcoming drama Marco Polo. To that, we’d also add “fists” and “naked bodies.” There’s just a whole lot of colliding going on.

Marco Polo Trailer Teases Swordplay and a Massive Scale for Netflix’s Biggest Series Yet

28 October 2014 6:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Netflix has released the first Marco Polo trailer for its upcoming historical drama series.  The show follows the explorer’s adventures throughout the 13th century in the court of Kublai Khan, the ruler of the Mongol Empire.  Acting as the ruler’s spy, ambassador, and explorer, Marco treks across the Far East, resulting in a story filled with greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue, and rivalry.  The show was created and written by John Fusco (Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron), and Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) directed the first two episodes.  This trailer certainly teases a massive scope, as this appears to be Netflix’s biggest original series yet.  There’s also plenty of sex and violence, but I’m most struck by the impressive visuals.  Indeed, the drama was shot on location in Italy, Kazakhstan, and Malaysia.

Et has a first look at what could be the newest binge-watching obsession on Netflix -- Marco Polo.

The R-rated drama based on Marco Polo's adventures in 13th-century China has it all -- politics, sex, and a hot lead actor, Lorenzo Richelmy.

News: Friends is coming to Netflix!

Lorenzo, 24, a rising young talent from Italy, was excited to show viewers a side of the famed explorer that they hadn't known before.

"Marco has this passion for people and culture, and he fell in love with this amazing world," said Lorenzo.

Show creator John Fusco (Young Guns) agreed, saying, "When people hear the name Marco Polo they tend to think of a map or explorer. Very few people know the true story of Marco Polo, and it's so much more compelling and exciting than the mythology."
