Rome: Death Mask (2007)
René played Herod in this episode of the US/UK co-production about the loves and machinations of the denizens of the Roman Empire .
Arriving in Rome from Judea on a secret mission, Herod is the target of an assassination plot.
Murder, bribery, suicide, kinky shagging, abortion and curses - a perfect night's entertainment, innit.
One hopes that he got to keep that fabulous frock as compensation for such a small role. ;)
