Starz has cast U.K.-born Andy Whitfield as the title character of its new action series “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.”
Lucy Lawless also has joined the cast as Lucretia. Filling out the cast are relative newcomers Erin Cummings, Peter Mensah, Manu Bennett, Antonio Te Maioha, Craig Parker and Nick E. Tarabay.
“Spartacus,” which begins production in April in New Zealand, is expected to premiere on Starz in January.
The series is produced by Starz Media and executive producers Rob Tapert, Sam Raimi and Joshua Donen, who originally developed the show. Executive producer Steven S. DeKnight, coming off a consulting gig on Fox’s “Dollhouse,” will serve as head writer.
