Prison Break Fodder

Locked Up with "Prison Break's" Wentworth Miller

scylla.jpg"Prison Break" is almost back. Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) is returning and Michael Rapaport will join the cast this season. However, there's one thing we haven't seen: The lighter side of Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller).

Miller, sans long shirt and tattoos, talked highly about the return of Callies, who was cut out (along with her character's head) last season. "I was just happy to see Sara back," Miller says. "I really felt her absence in [season] three. I felt that her return was important -- not just to my character, but to the show in general."

Still, can a head be reattached? "I think we address it as plausibly as possible," he says. "It helps that the show is kind of fantastic, and I think we've gotten away with worse."

For now, Callies is probably the only old face that will return this season. However, Miller wouldn't mind seeing another. "I'd bring back Paul Adelstein," he says. "I thought he was a fantastic Agent Kellerman, and I thought was symbolic of the kind of character that the show does best, which is someone living within the shades of gray -- not entirely black, not entirely white, not entirely good, not entirely evil, but someone who was complicated, as we all are in real life. I think that Paul really did a beautiful job of defining a character who could be vicious one minute and entirely sympathetic the next. He is very much missed."

However, it wasn't Kellerman, Sara or even C-Note that was missed most throughout season three. What happened to Michael's infamous tattoos? Although the long-sleeved shirts of last season upped his sweaty factor, the tats didn't even get a cameo. "The tattoo is addressed pretty definitively in the first episode," Miller promises.

It's those little things, in between the show's many twists and revolving door of characters, that keeps it interesting. "Most other TV shows are in the habit of figuring out their winning formula and then beating it into the ground," Miller says. "We take what we already know works and toss it out of the window at the start of every season, which I think is very bold and ambitious. It certainly provides a new playground for the actors."

Another "new playground" will be this season's new backdrop: Los Angeles. Just don't expect to see T-Bag head for the nearby Disneyland (how cool of an episode would that be, though?). "If there's a nudie bar or a pawn shop, that's where we are," Miller laughs. "We don't shoot in the nice locations."

While Fox hasn't confirmed whether or not this will be the last season, Miller admits that the show can't go on much longer. "It's not 'CSI'. It's not 'Law & Order'. It can't run forever... We not only jumped the shark long ago, I think we are inventing new sharks," Miller jokes. "We're taking it to a whole new level. Fasten your seatbelts."

Fasten them, indeed. The fourth season of "Prison Break" kicks off with a 2-hour extravaganza on September 1, starting at 8:00 p.m. (EST) on Fox. -- Rachel Cericola
