‘Prison Break’ Revival Locks Down Robert Knepper and Rockmund Dunbar
Like The X-Files before it, FOX’s Prison Break revival wouldn’t prove half so fun without returning cast, and now another two names have been added to roll call. That’s right, Robert Knepper will return as Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell, alongside Rockmund Dunbar as Benjamin Miles “C-Note” Franklin.
Confirmation of the duo’s return follows Amaury Nolasco’s earlier admission that Fernando Sucre would also return for the 2016 revival. Said return will also see Sarah Wayne Callies joining Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell.
Says the newest synopsis:
In the drama’s new chapter, when clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive, Lincoln and Sara reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag, C-Note and Sucre, are pulled back into the action.
Recent reports suggesting a trip to Yemen, the new series will include among its prison-breaking cast Mark Feurestein, Augustus Prew, Rick Yune and Steve Mouzakis. On the creative side, the revival will return original Prison Break creator and producing team Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, Scheuring serving as showrunner and writer.
Stay tuned for the latest, particularly as more original series star sign up for their roles.
