Major Hotties Considered For Spartacus Lead

Filed under: TV NewsYummy Yummy Screw


And then there were three.

With Andy Whitfield officially out of the hit Starz show (feel better, BB!), the search is one for someone to replace him. We're told that the list has been narrowed down to three, rather unknown actors to play the role. This week Stephen Amell, Aiden Turner and Liam McIntyre will all be flown to New Zealand to screen test for the starring role Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Sources believe that by the beginning of next week, the show will have its new hunk.

And what a delicious lot to choose from.

Hmm! Whoever is the casting director for this has the best job ever!

They're all so delectable, it's hard for us to choose! Who do U think is the best fit?

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!

Future Of Starz' Spartacus Unsure As Star Andy Whitfield Battles Cancer

Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad


Very nice to hear that Starz is involving Spartacus: Blood and Sand star Andy Whitfield in the process of deciding the fate of the show.

Spartacus Executive Producer Steven S. DeKnight has stated that he wants to speak about the show's future with Whitfield, who has unfortunately departed from the series due to a cancer relapse.

Here's what DeKnight had to say about it:

“The two main options are to close up shop or recast. I want to talk to Andy and find out how he feels about the options. That’s obviously very important to us."

More from DeKnight:

“We’re still absorbing what’s happened. I think it’s going to be a little while before we reach any conclusions.”

DeKnight has made it clear that Whitfield's health is his primary concern. Here's what he had to say about it:

“He’s a trooper. He has a very positive outlook.”

We're happy to see the respect and care that Starz and DeKnight are giving to Andy Whitfield.

We wish Andy the absolute best, and we hope things work out with Spartacus, one way or another!

What do U think they should do? Recast or close up shop?

Spartacus Star's Cancer Comes Back

Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad


So sad!

Spatacus: Blood and Sand star Andy Whitfield will be leaving the TV series due to a recurrence of cancer that will require "aggressive treatment."

The star said in a statement:

"It's with a deep sense of disappointment that I must step aside from such an exceptional project as Spartacus and all the wonderful people involved. It seems that it is time for myself and my family to embark on another extraordinary journey."

Whitfield was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma earlier this year and was considered cancer-free after being treated in July.

Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht says:

"Our hearts and prayers are with Andy and his family during this difficult time. Andy is not only an incredible actor whose portrayal of Spartacus made an indelible impression on Starz audiences, he is also an amazing human being whose courage, strength and grace in the face of adversity have inspired all of us."

We wish him the best and hope for a speedy recovery.

Spartacus Actor Is Cancer-Free!

Filed under: TV News


Thank goodness!

The super SEKSI Andy Whitfield, who was diagnosed with cancer in early March, is apparently completely finished with his treatment and has a clean bill of health!

Wonderful news!

His hit show, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, unfortunately had to work around his treatment for its second season, so producers chose to focus on a six episode prequel focusing on two other characters, played by Lucy Lawless and John Hannah!

Luckily, now that Whitfield is recovering they can segue right into filming the official new season! He's expected to be back on set by October!

We're thrilled to hear that he is doing so well!

Keep up the good work, and make sure you're taking care of yourself, bb!
