Jeremy Sisto is one of the few actors of Italian decent to portray Julius Caesar. Although Julius Caesar's nationality is Roman/Italian, he has been portrayed in various films, tv shows and others media depictions by British actors. See more »
The two actors performing the 'Alexander' sketch in the play at the beginning of the film are seen again towards the end where they make fun of Caesar's relationship with Cleopatra. There is a gap of a few decades between the events, where Caesar has aged from about 20 to 50, yet the actors haven't aged at all. See more »
I enjoyed this miniseries. I have some objections though. There are several factual errors, like Pompey did not crush the slave rebellion (Crassus and Cicero did), there was no law against armies south of the Rubicon - Caesar just transgressed his jurisdiction to do so. Important characters and events like Catilina's revolt, Crassus, Octavian, the war in Spain, etc. are totally left out. The characters are very shallow. Caesar himself is to sympathetic - he was a shrewd and ruthless politician.
