Former PRISON BREAK star Wentworth Miller is in talks to replace cancer-stricken Andy Whitfield in Spartacus: BLOOD AND SAND.
Whitfield was forced to quit the hit show in September (10) after learning his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma had returned - just months after doctors gave him the all-clear in June (10).
TV executives originally considered calling off the show due to Whitfield's health setback.
But according to Entertainment Weekly, they are now planning to recast the lead role of gladiator slave Spartacus - and they're hoping Miller will join the the cast.
