I just saw the movie "John Carter" (and loved it). But I noticed that four actors in the movie who were also in the HBO miniseries "Rome". Does anyone know why? For instance, was there staff of "John Carter" who also worked on "Rome"?
A quick search doesn't show any obvious behind-the-camera shared staff between the two. John Carter's Director and writers all came from Pixar. Rome's creators, who wrote almost all of the episodes of the show are mostly still working on TV shows. One of them does some work writing TV shows and movies. Expanding the search to directors of multiple episodes of Rome, I just see a mix of people working on other HBO shows since, and people who've moved on to TV shows on other networks, with the occasional movie writer.
But, none of that really proves the lack of a connection, just that one isn't easily found by searching resumes.
