Wentworth Miller Heading to 'Spartacus: Blood and Sand'?

Wentworth Miller has reportedly expressed interest in taking over Andy Whitfield‘s title role in Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

The Starz series is moving forward with a recasting after star Andy Whitfield was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and has been undergoing aggressive treatment.

According to EW‘s Michael Ausiello, producers are in search of a male in his mid- to late 30s to play the role, which also requires an authentic British accent and the willingness to sign a three-year contract.

DO YOU THINK Wentworth would be a good fit for Spartacus?

    It was nice seeing him the new Resident Evil 3-D.

    He has great on camera presence. Even the first time I saw him as Miriah Carey’s love interest in a video years ago!

    Would like to see more Wentworth…enjoy his work

    This is a joke..right, Jared? Tee hee,Here’s Went’s snacks list: Jelly Beans, Evian Water, M&M’s (chocolate & peanuts), Gatorade (various flavors), Potato Chips, Pretzels, Fruits, Rice cakes, Gum, Coconut water.
    Not to mention the waffles he has for breakfast.

    Nope but I think he might be starting a new career…as a super size model.

    Yeah, he needs to bulk up a lot and he must be willing to get naked –if not PASS! The nudity is the best part of the show!

    No don’t think he should do another tv series. He already has done one and that’s too long.Should try and do more movies if he can. But i still love him.

    well Says:

    A three year contract.He didn’t work out for Prison Break, said he was to lazy or for RE.Prison Break was for some years and he just kept gaining more weight.Now Spartacus.He would need to keep fit the whole time. Can he do that?

    Only Wentworth has the answer ! He ‘s talented, conscientious & a true hardworker so he can aspire to any role.. He knows what he wants, makes his choice according his desire, what he likes & despite of the steamroller which is Hollywood…Just wait & see ;) All My best Went & Still go on !!!!!!

    Kim Says:

    A hard worker. He’s not had an acting job for a year now.This is hardly a part he’d choose. Maybe it’s a PR stunt to get him some attention so he won’t be completely forgotten.

    MsNJS Says:

    I haven’t really seen him in anything so I cannot comment on his talent. I just want them to find someone and get the show on the road. Its so good and the hiatus is SO hard.

    JLO Says:

    Why don’t they give the role to Marc Anthony. Isn’t he a handsome, muscled man. Barf!

    Bunny Says:

    Well this seems like a odd choice for Went, but as has been pointed out, he is not working and the movies he has lined up are not going anywhere right now. So does he need to get back to TV? Can he still fit in other work with a three year contract ? If he does get the role he had better work on more than just his arms………….. Good Luck either way. Fans would look to see you…….and I do mean SEE YOU.
