New Prison Break promo! Looks like Michael (Wentworth Miller) is unwillingly forced to call someone up. But TV Guide interrogated Paul Adelstein, aka Paul Kellerman, about his character’s big switch to the good side:
Agent Kellerman looks like he’s becoming a good guy. Is he? On Prison Break, what defines you as a good guy is if you’re on Michael and Lincoln’s side — which means Kellerman hasn’t been a good guy. But in his mind, he’s always tried to do the right thing fod God and country. His turn, if that’s what it is, is born of the right instinct.
So we shouldn’t believe he’s changed? Part of the fun in the second half of the season is asking, “What is this guy’s motivation?” But it would be naive to the audience, given Kellerman’s history, to think that it’s a clear-cut path change.
Michael doesn’t know that Kellerman tortured his beloved, Dr. Sara Tancredi. Is that going to come out? One of the interesting things about the show is the good guys are convicts and anybody who helps them is someone you sympathize with. If Michael and Lincoln don’t try to exact revenge on Kellerman, that may generate some sympathy for him. But as this fragile alliance is built, there is a day of reckoning coming.
