The classic big-screen blockbuster comes to the boob tube with the miniseries adaptation Ben Hur (2010). Judah Ben Hur (Joseph Morgan) and Messala (Stephen Campbell Moore) were best friends as children, but after years apart Messala has hardened into a cold and ambitious man assigned to protect Pontius Pilate (Hugh Bonneville). When he returns to Jerusalem to prepare for Pontius' arrival, he demands that Ben Hur keep him informed about any possible threats to the ruler. And when a horrific accident nearly kills Pilate as he enters the city, Ben Hur’s life will never be the same again. Joseph and Stephen steam up the period piece with some fantastic flesh of biblical proportions!
