Spartacus’ Cancer Is Back

September 18, 2010 / Posted by:

Sad news, especially for those of you who get your weekly serving of half-naked man meat from Starz’s Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Spartacus himself is not coming back to the show, because the cancer that was in remission has come back. Andy Whitfeld has been forced to put away his leather loincloth while he undergoes serious treatment. Andy was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma this past March. Andy released this statement to People:

It’s with a deep sense of disappointment that I must step aside from such an exceptional project as Spartacus and all the wonderful people involved. It seems that it is time for myself and my family to embark on another extraordinary journey.”

Starz issued their own statement and said their thoughts are with Andy and his family. They haven’t made any decisions about the role of Spartacus just yet, but they are going to go on with season 2.

The only time I watched Spartacus was when I was channel surfing and landed on a scene that was filled with man nipple, sweat and leather. It was like a Tommy Girl wet dream without Tommy Girl. Perfect. Get better, Andy.

This sad news might require a temporary pick-me up for some of you, so here you go:

We all need a pussy massage, but tell him to watch the claws.
