When in Rome, James Purefoy has a rule. He is quite prepared to do as the Romans did, but only if the story demands it. In the first season of the HBO historical drama'which starts its second season this month'this included a scene in which the actor, playing Mark Antony, was toweled down by a slave.

But, says the 42-year-old English actor, it was justified.December 12 2006 7:00 PM

The unlikely object of their adulation is Vladimir Luxuria, Italy's first and only transgender member of parliament'who, before her 2006 election, was best known as founder of Rome's avant-garde gay nightclub Muccassassina ('The Cow That Kills'; it's just as absurd in Italian).December 11 2006 7:00 PM
