Spartacus Star Diagnosed with Cancer

Starz has been anxious to get underway on the second season of Spartacus: Blood and Sand (even renewing the series before it premiered), but the network may have to wait a little longer. Star Andy Whitfield has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and will begin treatment immediately, pushing back the start of production, which was set to begin in just a few weeks. Between Whitfield's diagnosis and the Hodgkin's lymphoma that Michael C. Hall has battled, it's a scary season for pay-cable leads. Get well soon, guys! [EW]
