Heroes getting T-Bag'd

  • 62comments

As far as villains in recent network television history go, few can compare to Prison Break's Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell, portrayed by actor Robert Knepper. T-Bag's story may be over with the end of Prison Break, but Knepper will continue the creepy villain thing on another show.

The actor has signed on to the next season of Heroes as the lead villain, says The Hollywood Reporter. He'll play Samuel, a charming man with a mean streak that was previously described as "The Carnival Barker" in casting announcements.

Heroes is also looking to cast Ray Park (known to most as the man who played Darth Maul in the second batch of Star Wars films) and Deanne Bray (The L Word) in multi-episode appearances. Park is set to play another Carnie and Bray will play a hearing-impaired love interest for one of the main characters.

When we last saw Dr. House, he was being admitted to the loony bin, and apparently that's where things will kick off in season six of Fox's House. House will have a roommate in the crazy house played by Broadway star Lin-Manuel Miranda, who penned and starred in the Tony-Award-winning In the Heights, says EW.com.

What do you think of T-Bag heading to Heroes? And how long will House last in the mental hospital?
