Exclusive Video Interview: Robert Knepper and Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, from 'Prison Break'
Robert Knepper does not seem like a man you want to mess with.  Not at all.  As the veteran actor who plays the fan favorite T-Bag on Prison Break, Knepper has created a fully formed and unique television villain.  Everything he says, every move he makes is worth watching on the screen.  Knowing I would have to interview the man, along with the stunning Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, you could say I was a teensy bit intimidated.  Robert Knepper...I had no idea what I was going to get.  Would he be like T-Bag at all?  Well, you can find out by taking a look below, where we have embedded the full video interview with Knepper and Jodi Lyn O'Keefe as they talk about Prison Break's upcoming fourth season.



The interview took place early this month at the FOX Fall press junket, and it might have been the most enjoyable interview I did while I was down in Los Angeles.  The two actors were incredibly friendly and, as you can see in the video, open.  They spoke their mind, and the interview took a very conversational course.  Robert Knepper is something of a deep thinker, one of those slightly askew actors who talks and thinks like a Zen master.

I particularly liked the parts of the interview when the two talk about being on location as opposed to filming in Los Angeles, and how that affects a cast.  Also, I found their discussion about fretting over what their next job would be or whether their characters would be killed off to be very atypical of actors, who tend not to open up about any kind of insecurities.

The biggest Prison Break specific nugget from the interview was, of course, the fact that the two will be teaming up to form a villainous duo on Prison Break this season.  Fan are in for a treat.

Prison Break
premieres its fourth season with a special two-hour premiere this Monday, September 1, starting at 8pm.
