Prison Break cuffs two new cast members

Prison Break's Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows are coming back for another year on the lam and under the microscope of a secret organization, but they won't be alone.

Two new cast members of the Fox drama were announced today and will join the show as regulars for its third season. Robert Wisdom and Jodi Lyn O'Keefe join Wentworth Miller (Michael) and Dominic Purcell (Lincoln), says The Hollywood Reporter, but will both play very different roles.

Wisdom will star as the jailed Panamanian drug lord Luchero, who happens to run the inmates in the Central American joint where much of the upcoming season takes place. The actor's previous credits include Howard "Bunny" Colvin on The Wire, Barbershop 2: Back in Business, and Ray.

O'Keefe will play Betty Crocker, an agent for the secret government organization, the Company. The fetching 28-year old brunette has a host of television credits, including appearances on Criminal Minds, Two and a Half Men, and Nash Bridges, in which she played the titular detective's daughter.

Prison Break begins its third season this fall. For more information, read TV.com's previous coverage.

Well, I really liked her in Another World (12 yrs ago). We'll see if Jodi can cook, too. (can't believe that name...) Oooh! Do we save points from her, or boxtops, or something? Never mind.

Sounds like 'Betty Crocker' is a pseudonym since she is an (likely undercover) agent.

I'm really looking forward Season 3. And these new characters are probably gonna be quite interesting to follow... "Drug Lord Luchero" :twisted: ?? wouhou lots of action ahead !!
I hope it doesn't turn out like S2 were I had hard time staying focused in the end of first half... Just keep the S2 end spirit and everything should be fine for me !!
(almost makes you wish summer was over :lol: )

i really hope that i wont be tempted to fast forward through season three. the finale of season two was great, although i found season two quite draggy at times.

Isn't it weird that an actor of jamaican descent is playing a panamanian drug lord?

But, I sure hope that the GA spin-off tanks so Kellerman can take down Betty Crocker. :)
