Wentworth Miller is back as blueprinted bad boy and Prison Break protagonist Michael Scofield. He’s returning to our screens once again this year thanks to Fox’s forthcoming TV revival of the hit show which will see him attempt to escape from a Middle Eastern prison.


The new season of the show seems to pick up where it left off – that is, with Michael dead, so it’s going to be fun to see how the writers get around that plot pickle.
