Diving into ancient Rome, Paul Mescal completes a marathon filming for Gladiator 2, revealing an unexpected path to the lead role.

Paul Mescal recently unveiled on The Graham Norton Show how he clinched the lead in the highly anticipated Gladiator sequel. His remarkable performance in “A Streetcar Named Desire” captured Ridley Scott’s attention, leading to a straightforward yet life-changing phone call. Scott’s question about joining the monumental project set in Rome received an eager yes from Mescal: “Is the Pope cathocil?”

After an extensive filming period that spanned over seven years, Mescal triumphantly finished his work on Gladiator 2. With the sequel poised to explore its ties to the original masterpiece, audiences are invited to revisit the grandeur of the Colosseum by Thanksgiving 2024.
