The poster for the third season of "The Tudors" has arrived and it’s not your father’s Henry VIII. Unless your father was into gay gladiator porn.

It’s striking though, because Henry VIII was probably the most ardently heterosexual of all the famous English kings. Why Ireland’s own Jonathan Rhys Meyers is sitting on a throne of naked men is anyone’s guess.

It looks like he’s just conquered a gay bathhouse. And what on earth can they mean with that racy tagline: "Thy Kingdom Come"? Care to speculate?

This other picture is of Jonathan Rhys Meyers attending the official launch party for the third season of Showtime’s "The Tudors" at the Conde Nast Building on Monday, March 30 in New York City.

Looks like he’s had a little sun. I’m just saying.
