Robert Knepper to Play T-Bag Again in 'Breakout Kings'

I'm going to make no apologies for my deep and abiding love of Prison Break. Even if, as my cousin rightly asked, "Exactly how many freaking prisons can they actually break out of?"  Well, Nick, the answer is two, okay?  And I don't see you breaking out of any prisons, so be quiet. Robert Knepper, who played child molester/murderer/all-around-bad-guy Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell in the FOX series will be reprising his role in 2011.  Yes, you read that right.  Prison Break creators Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora had inked a deal with A&E to develop a new prison show called Breakout Kings.  They, like the rest of us, loved Knepper's portrayal so much they've decided to bring him on to their new show (doesn't it seem wrong how much this horrible character was liked?).

'Heroes' TV Movie Not Happening

Fans holding their collective breath for some sort of TV movie to tie up 'Heroes' should exhale before they turn blue and pass out. According to Entertainment Weekly, NBC is not moving forward with the hyped plans for a prologue of sorts. In May, NBC announced the cancellation of the four-year series that once was a ratings giant, but quickly slipped from attracting about 14 million viewers for its season 1 and 2 premieres to just over 4 million for its season 4 finale. Shortly after cancellation, rumors quickly circulated about a movie that would give viewers some closure to the sprawling mythology of the superhero series. Series creator Tim Kring divulged details to TV Guide. "There will be a huge cultural and social change in the world," Kring told TV Guide. "Some [of our characters] will be hiding, some struggling, some basking in the glory." Further plot points of the TV movie/mini-series would have seen Claire become a spokesperson for the super-powered, something she wouldn't be very happy about it. Sylar (Zachary Quinto) would battle his desire to do evil and Adrian Pasdar was going to return, but not as Nathan. Apparently, all the actors were ready to get the ball rolling. "I've spoken with everyone," Kring said in June. "They're all eager to participate." Could Kring follow the Joss Whedon/'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' model and do a new season in comic form? Maybe. "We told stories in volumes that had a beginning, a middle, and an end," Kring told EW. "Those volumes could go on and on and on with many different characters. As a result, that 'Heroes' universe is something that can be tapped into again in many ways." Source Here

Heroes' Jack Coleman Cast as Mentalist Baddie

Following news that Masi Oka has been cast as Hawaii Five-0's new coroner comes word that another Heroes alum, Jack Coleman (a.k.a Mr. Noah Bennet, a.k.a. Horned Rimmed Glasses), has landed a role on another CBS crime drama. In The Mentalist's Oct. 14th episode, Jack will be playing Max Armstrong, described to me as a wealthy, regal, arrogant, self-important man who becomes the prime suspect in a murder. Sounds like a lot like Sylar (minus that wealthy part). Watch for this Max character to attract Patrick Jane's curiosity because of his calm, cold and collected demeanor. Turns out Mentalist co-star Owain Yeoman is a big Jack Coleman fan, but not from Jack's role on Heroes. "I'll always remember him as Steven Carrington on Dynasty," Owain tells me. Source Here

Heroes' Masi Oka to Play Hawaii Five-0 Coroner

After squinting his eyes and time-hopping around the globe to save the world as Heroes' Hiro Nakamura, Masi Oka has signed on to help Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) and his team investigate murders on CBS's Hawaii Five-0 reboot. He'll debut in the fourth episode as the coroner and be billed as a guest star. But with the body count expected to spike considerably in Oahu, this coroner could potentially be busy for several seasons. Also look for original king of comedy D.L. Hughley to appear in Hawaii Five-0's third episode as a character named Skeet. Skeet is described to me as an inmate serving a double life sentence who challenges McGarrett to a game of hoops.

'Heroes' Miniseries in Consideration

" Heroes " creator Tim Kring is "hopeful" the show will soon be back on the small screen - he's in ongoing talks with TV bosses to revive the hit as a mini-series. After four years on TV screens, bosses at America's NBC announced in May that the fourth season, which concluded in February, was the last. Producers have been in negotiations to end the show, which starred Hayden Panettiere, with a short mini-series or movie - and Kring reveals it's looking quite likely. He tells TV Guide magazine, "There's certainly talk about (a mini-series) right now and I am very hopeful. I strongly believe that the Heroes universe is a very big and very potent brand. It is for the fans that we feel that (the show) should continue." To Read More Click Here .

Heroes: Tim Kring Wants Wrap-up Miniseries

All hope is not lost, at least not for Heroes series creator Tim Kring. In a last ditch effort to save his axed series, Kring is planning to meet with NBC execs this month to discuss the possibility of bringing back Heroes for a wrap-up miniseries. Heroes, which ended its fourth season last February with Claire showing the world the truth about her abilities, was one of the shows canceled by NBC last month due to high cost of production and diminished ratings. Since then, however, Kring has been looking into ways to conclude the storylines with a possible movie or mini-series. If and when NBC agrees to the follow-up feature, Heroes will skip ahead a year or so to see the aftermath of Claire's revelation. "There will be a huge cultural and social change in the world," Kring tells TV Guide. "Some [of our characters] will be hiding, some struggling, some basking in the glory." Kring also reveals that Claire (Hayden Panettiere) will become a reluctant spokesperson for the abnormals, while Sylar (Zachary Quinto) will struggle with his dark side yet again. In what seems to be another jump the shark strategy, Adrian Pasdar is also expected to return though not as Nathan who died. "I've spoken with everyone," says Kring, who seems confident about luring back the entire cast. "They're all eager to participate." Source: - Tim Kring Wants Wrap-up Miniseries for 'Heroes'

Is There Power Left in Heroes?

Heroes ended its season last February with the indestructible Claire (Hayden Panettiere) throwing herself from the top of a Ferris wheel in front of the media, revealing her superpower to the world. Should the axed series return with a wrap-up miniseries - that's creator Tim Kring's hope, and he says he's meeting with NBC this month to discuss it - the plot will skip ahead a year or so to see the effect of Claire's revelation. "There will be a huge cultural and social change in the world," says Kring. "Some [of our characters] will be hiding, some struggling, some basking in the glory." Claire, who desperately wanted a normal life, will become a reluctant spokesperson for the abnormals. Sylar (Zachary Quinto) will again struggle with his dark side. And Adrian Pasdar will likely return, though not as Nathan, who died. Kring is confident he can lure back his entire cast if he gets a green light. (NBC refused to comment.) "I've spoken with everyone," says Kring. "They're all eager to participate." Source Here
