Cleaning one color uniform background ?

Hello there,

I have to clean the background of a 100+ images and I am looking for best way to approach this.
I am attaching a simple image of what I do know , but I do not like the results very much. Do you have an idea how I could get more uniform background?



Larger images :

What I do is cleaning the bigger uneven parts with Patch tool, then run Median filter on separate layer and add noise. Finally, I mask out the person.

After running quick retouching action on the legs, I used a second split frequency action to correct the background.

I use Dust and Scratches filter or plugin called Portraiture to do this. Portraiture is similar to the split frequency action. What I like about it is that it doesnt blur the edges of the person (like gaussian blur etc.).
