Paul Kellerman is in the (big) house!
Paul Adelstein will reprise his role in Fox’s Prison Break revival, TVLine has learned.
Adelstein, who played the Secret Service agent-turned-Congressman, joins previously announced Prison Break returnees Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper and Rockmund Dunbar.
In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after “escape artist” Michael Scofield’s apparent death, Sara Tancredi (Callies) has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband (to be played by Royal Pains‘ Mark Feuerstein). But when clues surface suggesting that Michael (Miller) may be alive, Sara teams with his brother Lincoln (Purcell) to engineer the series’ “biggest escape ever,” as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, T-Bag (Knepper), C-Note (Dunbar) and Sucre (Nolasco), are pulled back into the action.
The nine-episode continuation starts filming in April in Vancouver. The series’ original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner.
Adelstein’s recent TV credits include Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Scandal and Private Practice.
