Spartacus: Blood and Sand Recast
Starz have confirmed that they are recasting the role of Spartacus for season 2 of the hit TV series Spartacus: Blood and Sand.
When actor Andy Whitfield was first diagnosed with cancer the network produced a six episode prequel, which went into the lives of the other characters before Spartacus’s arrival, to give him a chance to recover. His cancer went into remission and the future of the series looked bright, unfortunately it was later announced that it had returned. Starz stood by Whitfield, when asked about the future of Spartacus they said that right now they were worried about Andy and they’d worry about the show on a later date.
Well it’s that later date. Andy still has cancer and the show must go on. So with Whitfield’s blessing they are recasting his role. Who will replace him? The official replacement hasn’t been announced yet, but who do you think should get the job?
