Yesterday, we reported that the 2012 Stand Up To Cancer telecast will air Friday, September 7 at 8 PM ET, airing commercial free on all four major networks and several cable networks. The proceeds from this on-air benefit go to support cancer research. Today, we have a very special video from Spartacus: War of the Damned star Lucy Lawless, who pays tribute to her Spartacus: Blood and Sand cast mate Andy Whitfield. The actor passed away nearly one year ago today, after battling non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
