Spartacus: Blood and Sand may continue on after all. Starz had considered canceling their popular sand and sandals series after leading man Andy Whitfield dropped out due to cancer complications. But that could be changing, as The Ausiello Files has discovered Prison Break's Wentworth Miller may be stepping into replace Whitfield.

Wentworth has expressed interest in taking over the lead role ever since Starz announced they were considering a move forward with the recast option. It is likely that he would be continuing on in the role of Spartacus, but Starz hasn't made an official statement about the direction the show will continue on in.
