Menelaus Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

Brendan Gleeson—you know, the guy that played Mad Eye Moody—played Menelaus in the movie Troy. (Menelaus would have preferred Russell Crowe.)

Menelaus often wishes that the Greeks had had the USS Menelaus during the Trojan War.

Menelaus is totally jazzed about the spaceship USS Menelaus, which zooms its way through the Star Trek universe.

The big guy was disappointed to learn the Menelaus Crater on the Moon was named after an astronomer and mathematician called Menelaus of Alexandria instead of him.
