Deadline reports three actors are in the running to replace Andy Whitfield as the title character in Spartacus: Blood and Sand: Stephen Amell (The Tracey Fragments), Aiden Turner (All My Children), and Liam McIntyre (The Pacific). Whitfield had left the series earlier this year to resume cancer treatment. (The actor, who was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in March, was in remission before dropping out.) The series will return to Starz in January.
