Unemployment Benefits were extended to those out of work 4. Initiative was passed to keep teachers, firemen, & local/city government employees from being laid off 5.

    I love Wentworth Miller, and I loved Spartacus.

    This idea makes me scream with joy! HE'S PERFECT! :)

    Andy's Got Like 50 Pounds On This Guy. Went Just Comes Across As A B**ch Sorry To Say



  5. 5

    …or Sam Worthington, but Wentworth would be good too!



  6. 6

    Andy Whitfield is Adonis by comparison. Don't get me wrong, Went's all sex on Prison Break, but he's not Spartacus material. My vote is to resurrect Jai Courtney (Varro) and recast him as Spartacus.

    Mmm, mmm, mmm. Yupp, that'd do nicely.



  7. 7

    i love me some wentworth …and i wanna see him do more acting…but this isnt the role for him at all…



  8. 8

    I wonder if he's ready to do a nude including a full frontal scene like most of the actors in Spartacus?



  9. 9

    Not sure about his physical fittness but I'm sure he could go into deep training if he was offered the part plus he looks like he could be related. Who, you ask?? Halle Berry's baby daddy of course ! Hope some one considers him as a potential replacement even though he's not an actor , you have to act modeling right ? "Team Halle Berry's Baby Daddy" !! >:o)



  10. 10

    Great idea, hope he gets it.



  11. 11

    hope that this is just bs…would be one of the worst casting decisions ever
    Sam Worthington would be okay..but lacks the intensity of Andy. and i dont see him doing tv for a very long time. best option make the prequel 12 episodes..
    or find a suitable lead.



  12. 12

    I like Spartacus and can't wait for it to return. I think Wentworth will do a good job in the role.



  13. 13

    Noooooooooooo he's not hot at all. No one can compare to Andy really…..but whoever plays Spartacus can't be American, it just wouldn't work.



  14. 14

    Re: ninjagirl2148 – I actually really like your suggestion. If Gabriel Aubrey can act, he would make a good Spartacus.



  15. 15

    WOW 515033 I am very surprised by your post, um kind of spammy, but I am not going to say you are wrong in anything you posted.

    I love me some Wentworth Miller! I know there is a lot of talk about him being possibly gay. As a woman, not that I ever have a chance or anything of probably ever running into him, but it would make me so sad. I hope he is not.



  16. 16

    …NO!!!…no one can replace Andy in this role. There was something simmering about Andy's portrayal of Spartacus. If they want to continue a roman gladiator type story, do something else…Like, take "Gladiator" and turn it into a sex show…Perez, you are still a bitch…



  17. 17

    OH PLEASE NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! No replacements!! It will suck with a replacement…



  18. 18

    I hope they offer the role to Karl Urban…another guy from downunder.



  19. 19

    Team WENTI all the way!



  20. 20

    Wentworth Miller as Spartacus?…umm…I CAN see him in this role.
    Wentworth is a good actor, he could do this well…bad-ass!
    Team Wentworth all the way!!!
    YoooooHooo!!

    YES PLEAEAEASE!



  22. 22

    I like Wentworth, but hell no to the Spartacus idea.
    He doesn't have the acting skills or the charisma that Andy has.
    It wouldn't work.

    LONG LIVE SPARTACUS! WE LOVE YOU, ANDY!!!



  23. 23

    sorry but i think they are going to have a hard time finding a suitable replacement for andy whitfield. He IS Spartacus! they need to be careful in choosing, otherwise they could lose alot of the fans of the show. not crazy about wentworth (kinda mediocre) and i say no way to sam worthington. he is a sucky actor. ever seen clash of the titans? :/ just my opinion. i can't think of anyone in particular that screams spartacus . . . maybe they should cast an unknown actor. whoever it is has to have that intensity.



  24. 24

    not busy? wrote two scripts, filmed resident evil 4, has two other projects in planing and he wasn't busy? went as spartacus?! ROFl I'd like to see that.



  25. 25

    This guy is more boy than man but I'll keep an open eye. If Puck really was fired from Glee I'd prefer to see him take on the role!



  26. 26

    Oh yes, he'd be a PERFECT Spartacus !!! You better start training to look as hot as you did in Prison Break….



  27. 27

    No.



  28. 28

    As a replacement for Andy Whitfield no, but as a new lead, why the heck not.



  29. 29

    Team Went!!! I would like to see him in anything right now but he is quite busy. 3 scripts he wrote, promotion for the Chevy Cruze, recently was in Resident Evil…ect…ect…. But this amazingly talented and gorgeous man NEEDS another lead role and fast!!!

    I love Spartacus. I love Andy Whitfield as Spartacus. I'm having a hard time coming to terms that he won't be able to return to this role now. I do think and want this show to continue. Maybe when Andy is better he can return to this show? He is STILL Spartacus to me.

    I love Wentworth Miller. Only have seen him in movies. Yes Andy does seem to be more muscular but Miller I think is taller than Andy. I think Miller would be a good substitute for Whitfield. I just think that Steven DeKnight probably will go with an unknown actor. Mainly because they are thinking that Andy will be able to resume his role on this show.

    This show is a hit for Starz but can you imagine, even maybe just a slight, kick in ratings if Miller joined this show? He would be the biggest name on Spartacus.

    Glad that you are giving Spartacus some love Perez. Also, Boardwalk Empire. We love that show too.



  31. 31

    Nooooo! Spartacus should be played by a real MAN! Not by a boy who thinks he can. Can we get Javier Bardem ór Hugh Jackman please?!?!



  32. 32

    My vote would go to Gerard Butler. He's already an established gladiator!



  33. 33

    Re: RussellBrand – Wentworth, no way! Gerard Butler should be the OBVIOUS choice!



  34. 34

    Yum! He is so sexy!



  35. 35

    NOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. I will stop watching the show!



  36. 36

    Big Friggin' NO!!!!



  37. 37

    I'm not sure that he would be a good fit for this role but he does say he is interested in branching out, so maybe he could pull it off! But then he'd be in NZ for the next 3 years and what chance in hell would I have of ever running into him casually on the street?!



  38. 38

    Wow, that seems like a terrible idea. Andy Whitfield was great as Spartacus and if they are going to replace him, it should probably be someone unknown that can blend in better and create their own new fan base.
