Liam McIntyre, Lucy Lawless
"I am Spartacus."
Newcomer Liam McIntyre pronounces these iconic words in Spartacus: Vengeance, which returns to Starz for its second season on Friday at 10/9c. In a way, the Aussie is proclaiming the new regime, both as the slave who won his freedom and as the actor who stepped into Spartacus' shoes after Andy Whitfield had to exit because of lymphoma. (Whitfield died in September.)
McIntyre: Andy Whitfield's death was the "saddest day" on the Spartacus set
Spartacus is back, and when the bloody action series returns, the storied hero is fighting harder than ever for his freedom.
"Spread word to all the slaves," Spartacus, now played by Liam McIntyre, says in the trailer, "that even the mighty republic bleeds when struck." And just like the first season of the Starz series — and its...

Whitfield died of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in Sydney on Sunday, his manager, Sam Maydew, told The Associated Press. In a statement, Whitfield's wife, Vashti, called her husband a "beautiful young warrior" who died in the "arms of his loving wife," according to the AP.

NATALIE: Alex will be in a heap of new trouble when Grey's returns in the fall — and not just with Meredith. Alex is very much persona non grata this season after snitching on Meredith for her unethical decision to mess with the Alzheimer's clinical trial.

Cynthia Addai-Robinson will replace Lesley-Ann Brandt as Naevia in Spartacus: Blood and Sand, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
In the prequel Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, Brandt played body slave Naevia to Lucretia (Lucy Lawless) and then eventually became the lover of Crixus the gladiator in the original series' first season. Brandt decided not to...
The beauty of adapting the King Arthur legend is its historical vagueness. If experts can't even agree whether or not the man lived, then that leaves plenty of freedom to mess around. At turns the legend has been magical (Excalibur), sanitized (The Sword in the Stone) or cheeky (Monty Python and the Holy Grail). Friday's premiere of Starz's Camelot had moments both unexpected and unsettling. Here's how this umpteenth version distinguished itself:
Lucy Lawless, No Ordinary Family
You know what the opposite of super is? When a show that's on the bubble scores a fierce guest star and utterly wastes her. Kind of like No Ordinary Family did last night.
When news broke that the live-action answer to The Incredibles had locked in Lucy Lawless for a four-episode arc, we were all like "our hero!" Not that the show is The Cape-bad — it's actually quite fun, despite two charmless kid characters — it's just that nobody is watching. You'd need Clark Kent's hearing to pick up any buzz on this one. So the hope was that maybe the flawless Lawless' stint as Mrs. X could save NOF from its villainous ratings and bring some heat to the Powells' home.
