Trivia / Prison Break

  • The Cast Showoff : Wentworth Miller was a competitive college swimmer. In the first season he shows off his swimming skills. Knocking the water out of his ear was a Throw Itin bonus.
  • The Danza:
    • Sarah Wayne Callies plays Dr. Sara Tancredi.
    • Paul Kellerman is played by Paul Adelstein.
    • Christian Stolte plays guard Keith Stolte in Fox River.
    • Danny McCarthy plays Danny Hale.
  • Dawson Casting: Tweener is supposed to be 18, but actor Lane Garrison was ages 25 and 26 when he played him.
  • The Other Darrin: Terrence Steadman is played by John Billingsley in Season 1. He gets replaced by Jeff Perry in Season 2.
  • Reality Subtext: Sona is loosely based on the Carandiru prison in Sao Paulo, Brazil, specifically the 1992 prison riot.
  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor: Barely averted; Tweener was actually killed off in the script shortly before his actor got sent to jail for manslaughter.
