'Prison Break' Star Lands 'House' Role

The eighth season of  House  doesn’t begin for another month and already it’s ramping up its slate of guest stars. Former  Prison Break  star  Wentworth Miller  has booked an episode on the veteran Fox medical series, creator  David Shore told  The Hollywood Reporter  at the Fox fall premiere party. Miller last appeared on the small screen with a guest role on NBC’s L aw & Order: SVU  in a 2009 episode and the  Prison Break  telepic  The Final Break. Miller’s appearance won’t be House’s only challenge in the new season, which begins Monday, Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. on Fox. Shore says "the cases" will give the doctor a run for his money, who also said that the departure of  Lisa Edelstein  was one reason why the producers "decided to have the time passage [in the season opener]. The world outside of  House  has settled into its own environment and it’s completely different in so many ways, including the fact that Lisa’s not there. House has to adapt." Read More...

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?).

What are the 'Prison Break' gang up to? The jail-busting manoeuvres of Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows came to an end earlier this year after four seasons of ridiculously contrived twists and pulsating action. The shaven-headed brothers fought The Company and paid a high price in their crusade for justice, all while being accompanied and accosted by a fine array of devious faces. But while many of these characters found their freedom during 'The Final Break', have the actors behind them managed to break free from the show's shackles and secure much work since? Here's our guide to what the Breaky Bunch have been up to… Wentworth Miller The British-born actor's tattooed torso and babyface looks won over a legion of baying admirers in his role as the brooding genius Michael Scofield. Not even his permanent sweat patch in Sona prison put them off. But they've had to suppress their panting in the months since Prison Break ended as Miller has kept a low profile. However, he is due to pop up Stateside later this month in a guest appearance as an NYPD cop who saves a rape victim in Law & Order: SVU. He's grown a bit of hair for the role, too! Miller is also rumoured to be playing a plane crash survivor in the mooted mega-budget movie project Bioshock. Dominic Purcell In contrast to his smart brother Michael, Lincoln Burrows was a bit of a brute, grunting and brawling his way through the show's four seasons. Dominic Purcell's next role bears some of those traits, but he's certainly not playing the good guy this time. For he's been snapped up for the pivotal role of village idiot rapist Niles in the currently shooting remake of controversial 1971 classic Straw Dogs. Maybe all those years in the company of T-Bag will have served as good research for such a part? Sarah Wayne Callies Off with her head! Callies's troubled character Dr Sara Tancredi made a miraculous comeback from decapitation, but can her acting career recover from the demise of Prison Break? It's a bit too early to say, although she does have a supporting part in the movie Lullaby For Pi, which stars Rupert Friend and Forest Whitaker and revolves around a jazz singer losing his voice after the death of his wife. Due for release in 2010, wouldn't it be great if Callies played the deceased wife and made another unlikely return from the dead? William Fichtner Drug-addicted corrupt cop Alexander Mahone flitted between goodie and baddie in the last couple of years, with William Fichtner's superb performance showcasing the character's underlying vulnerability. Before the cracks appeared, Mahone was a bit of a high-flying, slick type - qualities which serve Fichtner well for his upcoming role as an ambitious and smooth TV producer in the next season of Entourage. A feature-length pilot from 24 co-creator Joel Surnow called Night And Day, which he filmed during a break in Prison Break's last season, has not been picked up and is still awaiting transmission. That's a real shame, as it gave Fichtner a rare lead role, starring as a homeland security officer who juggles fending off terrorist threats with his tricky personal life. A total departure from 24 for Surnow, then… Robert Knepper After nailing his role as the homicidal, wisecracking paedo T-Bag as well as giving him a bizarre appeal to many viewers, Robert Knepper has been snapped up by Heroes for its forthcoming season. Unsurprisingly, he's been cast as a clever and charming villain yet again - but one without a false arm this time - just to allay any typecasting fears. It was recently announced that this role as Samuel Sullivan will be a series regular and the year's Big Bad, engaging in a bitter feud with Hiro. Jodi Lyn O'Keefe As the cruel and sexy Company operative Gretchen, O'Keefe certainly had both T-Bag and stacks of drooling male viewers wrapped around her little finger. Yet she's not had the same effect on casting agents since Prison Break wrapped, as she's only secured a small role in one episode of comedy The Big Bang Theory. In a recent interview, she stated: "Right now, I'm just scrambling for work, trying to find a project that I love and that I'm into and get back in the saddle again… the industry is very, very slow." Amaury Nolasco Despite his whiny pining for his beloved Maricruz, Fernando Sucre became one of the most reliable and loved characters on the show. During his four-year stint, Nolasco managed to shoot roles for movies like Transformers and Max Payne - and seems intent on carving out a post-Prison Break big screen career. Set for release in December, Armored sees Nolasco hook up with Matt Dillon, Laurence Fishburne and Milo Ventimiglia for a crime thriller centred around a cargo heist. 2010 will witness him as affluent Puerto Rican Segurra alongside Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary, adapted from Hunter S. Thompson's book by Withnail And I writer-director Bruce Robinson.
