Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce actor Paul Adelstein has closed his deal to reprise his role of Paul Kellerman in Fox’s event series Prison Break. Production is set to begin next month in Vancouver on the nine-episode follow-up to the cult 2005 Fox action series.
Adelstein is the final remaining original player to sign on to the revival, joining Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper and Rockmond Dunbar.
The original Prison Break, which ran for four seasons, centered on Michael (Miller), who went to prison to try and save his convicted brother Lincoln (Purcell) by hatching an elaborate escape plan. In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after Michael’s apparent death, Sara (Callies) has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband (Mark Feuerstein). When clues surface suggesting that Michael might be alive, Sara teams with Lincoln to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever.
Adelstein is currently featured in Bravo’s Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. He previously starred on ABC’s Private Practice and recurred as Leo Bergen on ABC’s Scandal. He is repped by Gersh, Principal Entertainment and Gang Tyre.
