'Prison Break' Co-Star Bags 'Transporter' Role
Robert Knepper joining Jason Statham
According to Variety, "Prison Break" co-star Robert Knepper has been added to the cast of the franchise sequel in an unspecified capacity.
Louis Leterrier, who had a hand in directing the first two films in the franchise, is finishing work on his "Incredible Hulk" reboot for Marvel and will turn things over to Olivier Megaton, a second unit helmer on "Hitman."
The first two movies in the "Transporter" franchise made more than $130 million worldwide.
Knepper, who had a co-starring role in "Hitman," is best known as Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell on FOX's "Prison Break," which concluded its third season last week. His other feature credits include "Hostage" and "Good, and Good Luck."
