'Prison Break' Revival Adds 'Royal Pains' Star

"Royal Pains" veteran Mark Feuerstein will join returning stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell in Fox's limited-series revival of "Prison Break."

Feuerstein has landed the role of Scott Ness, the husband of Dr. Sara Tancredi, played by Sarah Wayne Callies ("The Walking Dead") in the original series. According to Deadline, Callies and fellow "Prison Break" veterans Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Amaury Nolasco are in talks to reprise their roles, but no deals are in place.

Ness is described as a professor of economics (game theory) at Cornell who's dubious of government, but proves he has significant fight in him when up against a wall.

Airing from 2005 to 2009, “Prison Break” initially centered on a brilliant structural engineer (Miller) who orchestrates a complicated plan to free his wrongfully convicted brother (Purcell) from a state penitentiary by having himself sentenced there (all the keys to their escape were hidden in Miller’s elaborate fully-body tattoo).
