Pic is Gary Stretch on the set of Alexander.
I've heard he is playing Cleitus but don't yet know if that is accurate.

Looking at the pic of Gary made me smile. During filming it was a running joke that Gary was the one I wanted for my toy boy much to Colins amusement, the question each time was had I not woked up and realised he was better looking but I stuck to my guns! but not to Gary haha. nice guy though

Just admit it girls [and boys? I don't want to be sexist]. For us, watching 'Alexander' was like being a kid watching a film about a sweetshop: loads of half naked muscly men writhing about all over the place all the time! I shut my eyes during the battle scenes cos they were too boring and gruesome, but the rest of the film was perfect Smile

After watching the movie many times (you know that), I can say Gary is a very attractive man. And SEXY! I like him.

It said in RLF's book that Gary and Jared nearly came to blows on the film set [doesn't say why]. Bet that would be a fight worth watching, especially if they were in costume Razz

Perhaps that's why we see in the movie Cleitus punching Hephaestion for no reason. Laughing

That would make sense, since that bit of that scene has always bothered me (didn't fit)...then again, maybe that's what started the fight Very Happy

Well.....while having a coffee in a local bar today.....Cleitus's younger double walked in ..... the face, hair, beard....everything but the Macedonian clothes..... Razz
I wondered if he has a brother who may have been on a day trip from Liverpool .....lol

Gary will be seen in Oliver Stone's movie about the 9/11 tragedy, World Trade Center. This is supposed to open in August. The only other actor from Alexander to be cast in this film is Young Alex (Connor Paolo).

I took Cleitis' punching of Hephaestion to be a sign of his (and other's) resentment toward Alexander's favorite. There wasn't time to deal with this fully in the film, so Stone chose to refer to it in this off-hand way. Cleitis' jealousy could be considered a factor in his unfortunate outburst leading to his murder.

Hi,
in this humourous music video....you can see Cleitus coming from behind Hephaestion with a grin and Hephaestion raising his arm, looks around, smiles and pushes him...then later you get the pushing and shoving and Cleitus punches him... it looks to start off quite friendly......
