Look Out, Heroes: Robert Knepper Signs on as Villain

at . Comments

Robert Knepper - who, as the villainous T-Bag on Prison Break, made us shudder by uttering a single sentence - has joined the cast of Heroes.

The scary actor has signed on as the main nemesis for season four of the show. Look for him to appear in at least six episodes.

Knepper will portray Samuel, a charismatic and evil character that possesses a wickedly twisted sense of humor. As any fan of Prison Break can vouch for, the role sounds perfect for this rising star.

This is probably the best news I have ever heard about Heroes.Ever. No casting news or upcoming deaths have had me really anticipating something great to come. 10/10 acquisition.
