Washington, August 6 (ANI): In a rather odd cameo, Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas will be cast in the new TV remake of Spartacus as a prosthetic manhood.

Producer of ‘Spartacus: Blood & Sand’ Rob Tapert revealed the story about how artificial penis used in the shoot came to be named after the 92-year-old actor.

The prosthetic body part was apparently made for some of the more modest and less-endowed cast members for the many full-frontal nude scenes in the TV mini-series.

“There is a great deal of nudity, both male and female, and some guys in the series are not as well-endowed as other guys, so we had to create the Kirk Douglas, as it was aptly named, so that certain actors would have a prosthetic that they could wear and feel comfortable,” Contactmusic quoted Tapert as saying.

He said: “Someone lovingly called it the Kirk Douglas, and the name stuck.”

Actress Lucy Lawless, who stars in the film, said: “That was Erin Cummings, who plays Spartacus’ wife Sura. She thought she should have the right to name it (penis), so Kirk Douglas’ agent, don’t call us.

“That thing gets shared around. At the moment it’s pinned to the wall next to all the merkins in the make-up truck.” (ANI)
