Spartacus: War of the Damned: Christian Antidormi to Play Tiberius

TV Line is reporting that Spartacus: War of the Damned has found its young Tiberius, son of Marcus Crassus hell-bent on impressing his wealthy patriarch, in Australian actor Christian Antidormi. This will be the first international role for the 20-year old actor, known for his roles in As the Bell Rings and Home and Away, and likely one final addition to the last season of Spartacus.

Avalon High, the next Disney Channel Original Movie, has started production in New Zealand and it stars Britt Robertson and Gregg Sulkin. American viewers know Robertson best for her role as Lux on Life Unexpected (TV), while Sulkin has guest starred as Mason Greybeck on a couple of episodes of Wizards of Waverly Place (TV) and is recognized back home in England for his appearances on Disney Channel UK's version of As the Bell Rings (TV).
