I loved T-Bag from Prison Break; in fact, he was one of the best things about that stupid show. When we last saw him, he was being hauled off to solitary confinement for unknowingly helping Michael bust Sara out of jail. But now Robert Knepper is reprising the role of T-Bag on the upcoming show Breakout Kings from Prison Break producers Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora. I'd love it if other producers reached back to their old shows and revived some of our favorite characters on their current projects. Here's our wish list:
I've been reluctantly continuing to watch Breakout Kings solely because I knew T-Bag was coming eventually. After sitting through the entirety of Prison Break (even the really, really awful times) mostly because of the awesomeness of the multi-faceted freak show that was T-Bag, I was happy to see the character revived. And I finally got to see the episode I'd been excited for, and it delivered. Well, Robert Knepper and Jimmi Simpson delivered, the rest of the cast... were just on some other ordinary cop show.
After the last couple of seasons, which have been uneven at best, we weren't really sure what could be done to get us interested in Heroes again. Well, consider us interested. This season, the Heroes cross paths with some sinister circus folk, including a folksy Robert Knepper (T-Bag from Prison Break) and a knife-wielding Ray Park (Darth Maul and Snake Eyes). The pair got on a conference call recently to talk to us about their characters, and we were treated to two awesome stories from Knepper -- about scaring people on elevators and hanging out with Christopher Walken -- and the startling revelation that Park once wanted to be Teen Wolf. Our minds have been blown. Read for yourself after the jump.
