Michael Rapaport Joins Prison Break

Prison Break will have another regular next season, as Michael Rapaport has reportedly joined the show as it goes into its fourth season.

Prison Break‘s fourth season will have 22 episodes and production for the fourth season will move from Dallas to Los Angeles this month.

Michael Rapaport will play a government agent who has an interesting offer for Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and his brother (Dominic Purcell), according to the Hollywood Reporter. Rapaport had been a regular on Boston Public and more recently a recurring character in NBC’s My Name Is Earl.

    I’m too impatient to watch the season 4!

    Prison Break is and will remain the best show I ever seen!

    Wentworth is an incredibly gifted actor and an exceptional man!

    I need the season 4 quickly, quickly!!!

  • Winnie

    I’m glad to hear some news from PB4 but need MORE information especially about Scofield and Sara! …their true love :-)

  • Sabrina

  • cutiepie

    eww, well I guess they need ONE ugly guy on the show.

  • Bye Bye dude

    Sad thing, i’m less & less “fan” of the show, of Went !!!
    I don’t know something change !!!
    Things are not the same !!!
    I can’t believe I said that but I did it !!!
    Well, I think by always saying in itw that it’s very weird, strange for him that people spend time to follow his carrer or anything else that he makes me award that it’s true there something more interesting to se him with a Starbuck !!!
    Went, you shouldn’t talk like that !!! You close my eyes !!!
    Nevertheless be good !!!

  • Wanda

    If Wentworth Miller had any sense he would quit this show now who cares if he’s under contract.What a joke they have thee most horrible actors around and keep hiring bad ones.The show is a total joke and for Wentworth after this show is done with he won’t have a good movie carreer.Because of his laziness just to get paid and still stick to this show.The entire plot for this season is very bad inside source said it,,, the show was dumb from the start but the fourth season is pure comedy and full of ridiculous plots!

  • Ikram

    If he was saiying anything bad about the fan you’re going to loste one of the many important fan of europe so i hope that what the girl say is’nt true if it is i’m sorry for you and for me ’cause i ‘m’ so disappointed of you attitude
    I was loving the relation that you was having with your fan you was so sweet and kind i hope with all my heartt it’s a lie

    Girls sorry for my bad english

  • x)

    yay! prison break rocks:) but I dont think it is a point to make anymore seasons now.. the two first was best, but im still glad that there is a fourth season beacause it is a very good show. :)

  • sunny

    Michael Rapaport is a talented actor and IMO will be a welcome addition to PB S4.

    The new characters in S3 were mostly one-dimensional (Gretchen, Sophia, Sammy, Lechero) which was a big disappointment after all the fabulous characters/actors from S1 and S2.

    Sara will be back, and that’s the best news EVAH!!! :)

    S4 has the potential to be the best season ever…the cast knows each other and works well together, and hopefully the writers will pull out all the stops so PB can finish on a high note!!


    Do you know there ISN’T A SINGLE VIDEO in which he SAYS: “I’M NOT GAY”?

    He said many of “his”written interviews are fakes.

    His publicists fabricated the “I’m not gay” statements.

  • Lena


    JJ we need new scoops about Sarah Wayne Callies pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssssSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…

    Rapport is a good actor. I see him more as a comedian though :D

  • laura

    stop maintenant les publicistes n’ont rien invente wentworth miller à dit qu’il n’ai pas gay à l’associated press en australie en 2006 et dans le journal Instyle Germany en 2007 (qui apparait sur le site de Perez hilton) quand Wentworth Miller dit de faux interview c’est par exemple “prendre l’helicoptere pour rentrer chez lui dans le journal people français “closer” ou dire que wentworth miller à 2 couleurs de yeux.
    maintenant c’est bon les questions sur sa sexualite c’est lourd et ceux qui ne l’aime pas alors ne laisse pas de coms et puis c’est tous.
    pour finir avec la rumeur pourquoi ne pas aussi analyser les propos de Perez Hilton? Qui est cette ami qui dit avoir eu une relation avec W.Miller ? Au début Luke et Wentworth devait vivre un grand amour depuis 6 mois et aujourd’hui ils sont séparés? Pourquoi ? Luke ne dit rien et Wentworth dément être gay.
    pour finir=>il y a 100 000 morts en chine et en birmanie cela est plus important .

  • laura

    Now stop publicists have nothing fabricated . Wmiller said he did not gay at the associated press in Australia in 2006 and in the newspaper Instyle Germany in 2007 (which appears on the site of Perez hilton) when Wentworth Miller said false interview ex “take the helicopter to return to his home in the french newspaper people” CLOSER “or say that wentworth miller have 2 colors of eyes.
    Now stop .Questions about his sexuality is boring and those who don’t like WMiller then don’t write coms .
    ending with the rumour why not also analyze what say Perez Hilton? Who is this friend who said he had a relationship with W. Miller? At the beginning Luke and Wentworth had to live a great love for 6 months and today they are separated? Why? Luke said nothing and Wentworth denies being gay. Who is the source of Perez hilton?
    Finally => there are 100 000 deaths in China and birmanie it is more important.

  • millers-ex

    I’m really excited about season 4 although I do think PB is far-fetched and silly! But, hey, that’s entertainment.

    And I’m in love with Wentworth. He was sent from heaven.


    @ Laura there is NO VIDEO of him saying he’s not gay!

    Written words don’t mean HE said this, it could be his publicists.

    I won’t believe it until I SEE and HEAR him saying it.

  • laura

    ok je cherche en ce moment

    et toi trouve des preuves de l’homosexualite (réel ) de wentworth miller

    ok I’m looking at this moment

    and you find evidence of homosexuality of wentworth miller.


    @ I don’t understand French!

    Evidence: his photos with Luke McFarlane which were taken weeks after Perez Hilton told about his relationship. And the Mark Liddell photos, and the rumors from different gossip sites for YEARS, and no girlfriend , and “no time to date” etc…

    Do you need more?

  • samira

    I agree with Laura, instead of focusing you on his sexuality, so much so that you don’t manage to sleep at night lol!!!!

    It will be better, if you worry of what’s happening in the world (war, earthquakes, victims ………….) I think that it is the most important!!!!

    You seem to be “mental patients”, to focus on his sexuality like that, grow up a little!!!!!

  • Ammy


    The pictures with Luke MacFarlane don’t prove anything except that they are friends or acquaintances.

    He was photographed by Mark Liddell, I don’t see what that has to do with anything.

    What rumours on what gossip sites are you talking about. I thought Perez Hilton was the only one. Although I’m not sure that gossip sites actually count as evidence anyway.

    He HAS said on video that he wants a wife and kids. Which makes it pretty clear he’s not gay. Here’s the link.

  • Marie-Eli

    More than Went’s own words about the issue (you may think he’s lying for career reasons) it’s Dominic Purcell’s words which should convince sceptics.
    Dom has been working with Went for FOUR years now, he should know!
    And he said Went :”isn’t gay, he has his eye on a woman”.

    If you have a friend who is gay you’re not going to claim he’s straighrt in front of all and sundry. On the contrary you diplomatically say that other people’s private life is not your business.

  • soso

    when wentworth miller will do his coming out will have a true bomb for female fans. We must accept now is gay.


    Tom Cruise has a “wife and kid” yet the rumors around him are persistant.
    For a Yale graduate, I think WM is not very good with words: he (allegedly) said he’s not gay, but he deflected further explanations.

    “No, I’m not gay. I know the rumors are out there , yappy yap…”
    We know the “rumors are out there”, hasn’t he got more to say?

    All gay men say “I’m not gay ” when they are still in the closet. They never say: “I’m straight and I have girlfriends”.
    He’s clearly lying.

  • Ciudadareal

    He’s a gay man. People accept it!

  • Franny

    He’s not Yale educated, he went to Princeton.

  • dea

    will u ever get bored from this gay thing? it is not our business get over it..
    he is a talented actor let’s talk about this..

  • soso

    the debate on homosexuality of Wentworth Miller shows the intolerance of female fans W.miller. If he is gay why women don’t like wentworth? I would like to know

  • kris

    Love michael R. Very funny. hope he keeps up the ratings. I really hope to see Sarah back soon.!

  • kris

    Who cares if he’s gay or not. OMG! What is the big deal? Were you dating him, and then found out? I think not! So who cares. It’s a good show.!

  • dama

    i’m dying to see the season 4,but i heard that it coming on 25 may,

  • gosh

    michael r. was really funny as phoebe’s boyfriend on friends. he should be good on pb. dama i heard they were shooting on may 20. and again w/ the whole gay thing, i like went either way, but i would just like to know to know, ya know?

  • marymi

    “boston public” another casualty of FOX? also it’s not fair that NBC resumes “my name is earl’s” 3rd season , and FOX cut’s prison break’s 3rd down to only the 13th episode, …then they turn around, and star up a 4th season already! :P

  • superfan

    coincedently speaking of “earl” wasn’t mr. rapaport playing a prisoner on that show? where he escapes the pen?

  • andie

    i just finished watching pb 1 season, then i found how stupid i was when i missed this great tv serires a couple of years ago. i will definitely continue to watch this. the actors are so great and the storyline is always out of your expectations. i think miller is michael, he just played himself and this role is perfectly reserved for him.

  • Max

    I agree.. i dont like that guy joining PB. I dont understand why the choice him in the first place.. anyone would be better then him.. He cant play that kind of character, cant watch him without thinking about him as a goofy.. and he always to sounds like an idiot.. “an-an-and you know..” “an-an-and you got too..”
