Spartacus Casting Rumors

According to this tweet I just saw, Wentworth Miller is interested in taking over the title role of Spartacus:


Exclusive: Wentworth Miller throws his hat into the SPARTACUS ring. http://bit.ly/c9PTNw  less than a minute ago via web

Don't know too much about him. I only saw Prison Break a couple times. Maybe he can pull it off, although he didn't do much for me in Prison Break. That's why I only watched it a couple times. I have a few friends that like him though, so maybe I'm wrong. It's just speculation and rumor anyways.

Personally, I hope they go with a relatively unknown actor. I think he'd have better acceptance. And I like the idea of an unknown actor getting his big break with this role, but that's just me. Whomever they choose, Wentworth or otherwise, we should give him a chance readers. At the very least, he deserves that.

Recasting Spartacus Follow-Up

According to this tweet, the look for an actor to replace Andy as Spartacus has begun:


It's official: Starz' SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND poised to replace Andy Whitfield in title role. http://bit.ly/a7NnVN  #getwellandy  less than a minute ago via web

Don't you guys just hate the idea of recasting Spartacus? Me too readers. But I also hate the idea of the show ending. Hopefully they'll find somebody suitable. We should definitely give the new actor a chance. It's not his fault, right! Whomever he is, he deserves his chance to shine too.

I know some people wanted to wait until Andy gets better. But we don't know how long that will be. It's crazy to hold up production, the actors, crew, etc, for an unknowable amount of time. And let's face it, money is a big consideration here.

I heard some people say if Andy is not in it then it should be cancelled and they won't watch. I'm just going to take a wild guess here because I don't know the man, but I would imagine the last thing Andy would want is to have a lot of people unemployed because he is sick. That would be a shame. He's got enough to worry about.

I don't know what will happen, but I do know it won't be easy finding somebody to fill Andy's shoes! Not to mention gaining the viewers' acceptance. Hopefully Andy will  recover and we'll see him once again on the screen. Maybe as James Bond! Although I think his acting chops are far more worthier than Bond. Just saying........
