Spartacus Actress Calls It Quits, Won't Return For Next Season

Filed under: TV News

spartacus actress quits the show

Last month, we were happy to report that Starz' prequel series Spartacus: Gods of the Arena started out strong, despite star Andy Whitfield's departure from the show.

Now, it looks like another cast member, Lesley-Ann Brandt, will be leaving the show.

Brandt has reportedly quit the show to pursue other pilot projects, and her character Naevia will be recast for the show's upcoming season, Spartacus: Vengeance, which will premiere on Starz in late 2011.

Spartacus fans really seem to love this series, so we're thinking that they'll be able to handle the role being recast.

Do U watch the show? If so, who do U think would be good to take over the role of Naevia?

It's Down To Two! Who Will Replace Andy Whitfield On Spartacus: Blood And Sand?

Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

Given the really tragic circumstances surrounding this, it will be a pretty somber victory for either of these guys.

After actor Andy Whitfield's cancer returned in September and forced him to resign from his title role on the Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, the second season of the show has been in limbo as producers attempt to find a suitable replacement for the part.

Although three relatively unknown actors were said to be in contention, sources close to the production are now linking former Prison Break actor Dominic Purcell as the number one choice to replace Whitfield!

The actor is said to have e-mailed a screen-test to the Starz head honchos last Friday, and the decision is now between him and Liam McIntyre, whom we're hearing may not have the muscular frame to convincingly portray the character!

Hmm. We definitely think Liam looks a lot more like Andy, but he definitely needs to be pretty jacked if he's going to be a gladiator, so we can understand why Dominic has been pulled in for consideration, as well!

This is a toughie!

What do U think?? Who should get the part??

Ugh! Katherine Heigl Forces Studio To Recast Her In Adaline

Because she's not doing it anymore!

This morning, source report that Katherine Heigl withdrew from her commitment to the movie Adaline. Both the studio and her reps deny that she's just being a bitter Betty for some reason or another and are going with the same excuse she pulled out when she refused to go back to Grey's: she's a new mommy who doesn't want to work right now.

As if she is the first woman in the history of movies to have a newborn while shooting a major motion picture!

The role now has to be re-cast immediately in order to make the mid-March production deadline and in a statement released by one of the producers of the film, they insist that everyone at the studio is still "great fans of hers and if this is what she has to do, we respect that."

Uh-huh. Sure. Let's see if they ever call her again to make a movie!

Bad decision, Kat! How many other chances are you going to get to play alongside Angela Lansbury! NONE, thats how many! Bad, bad choices!

Starz Is Recasting Spartacus, They've Decided

Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

It has to be done, unfortunately.

Starz has put officially put out a casting notice looking for someone to replace Andy Whitfield on Spartacus. Since the actor has been advised by his doctors to resume "aggressive treatment" for his lymphoma, the studio was faced with a decision to either end the show all together or recast their star.

It seems the choice has been made.

It's a truly sucky situation for Andy, but his health is much more important!

We just hope he gets better soon!
