Sure, Michael was apparently dead, but the revival of Prison Break is going to change that. But can he be reunited with his family? And, as Wentworth Miller put it, when he does, “will he be recognizable?”

Watch the video interview with Wentworth Miller:

Here are a few highlights:

  • He compared playing Michael again to riding a bike. He didn’t have time between Legends of Tomorrow and the start of production to rewatch all of the original series, so he had to trust that Michael was in him somewhere and he was.
  • It’s meant to feel like a continuation of original series. The same themes of brotherhood, sacrifice, family, loyalty, all the stuff fans appreciated first time around, are still there.
  • He thinks Michael has a superhero quality to him in that he’s able to endure what someone else might not be able to, but he’s still human and relatable. It’s the same quality he tries to bring to his portrayal of Captain Cold.
  • If there is more to the story that’s worth telling, there could be more after this.
  • “Michael has been walking a very dark road. He’s always been a good man pursuing a good cause, willing to get his hands dirty, but his hands are now quite filthy. His sole objective in these nine episodes is to get back home to his wife and his child, but when he gets there, the question is, will he be recognizable? Will he still be in any way, shape or form the man that Sara once knew?”
  • He wanted to get back as many of the original cast as possible. He thinks fans can look forward to seeing old favorites on screen interacting in new ways.
