Michael Scofield is back, but the upper-body tattoos that drew viewers into the original Prison Break are long gone.
On Fox’s upcoming revival, Michael (Wentworth Miller) has a new set of tats on his lower arms that play a key role in the Odyssey-inspired tale which finds the former inmate desperate to get home to his family. But before he can reunite with his brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell), wife Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies), and son Mike (Christian Michael Cooper), Michael must escape a Yemeni prison.
“The tattoos are functional in a different way,” Miller says of his latest ink. “It’s less of a blueprint. They serve a very specific purpose.”
