This article from TV Guide Online had me laughing at the prospect of Lucy and Marissa in the arena! I would pay to see that happen. Here's the excerpt of the article that featured all the cast of Spartacus Vengeance:

Bring On Bruce Lee! The Stars of Spartacus Pick Their Weapons and Wingmen

All men face the threat of death, but the Spartacus: Vengeance cast has faced it on a regular basis through their characters on the show.

Going into the epic finale Friday (10/9c, Starz), we asked the actors to reflect on what it must have been like to be placed in Spartacus' sandals and had them weigh in on two very important subjects:

Lucy Lawless as "Lucretia"

1. If you were dropped into the gladiators' arena, what would be your ultimate weapon of choice?

2. Who would you pick as your wingman in the arena?

But I would want it on a pike because... a staff would give you such an advantage. I'd have a lethal staff.
