English-American film actor, Wentworth Earl Miller III, has revealed that he is officially out of Prison Break, a popular Fox series of which he played the role of Michael Scofield in.
The 48-year-old actor revealed this in a post on his Instagram page on Monday, November 9 while reacting to some recent comments on his page.
Naija News understands that Miller in 2005 received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Drama as a result of his role in the Prison Break, a movie which received commendations from lovers of series across the world.
Speaking about appearing in additional series of Prison Break, Miller said he do not want to play straight characters any longer, adding that the PB stories have been told and told.
Miller full statement read thus: “This is my favorite IG account,” someone wrote in response to a recent post. Thank you. I want you to know I saw that. I see the positive comments and DMs (a lot of them anyway). Affectionate. Supportive. Appreciated (by me).
“Obviously there are comments and DMs I appreciate less. Who are these people? On my page? What backwards-ass, Stone Age values country did they crawl out of? The U.S.?
“I won’t be disappearing (too many cool things to repost). The ability to comment likely will. I’m not concerned for myself. I can’t be “bullied” in this space. I have too much power. “Delete. Block. Deactivate.” Etc.
“But I take seriously the possibility of queer kids visiting here, recently out of the closet or exploring the idea… I don’t want them exposed to bullshit.
“On a related note… I’m out. Of PB. Officially. Not bec of static on social media (although that has centered the issue). I just don’t want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told).”
So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons… I understand this is disappointing. I’m sorry. If you’re hot and bothered bec you fell in love with a fictional straight man played by a real gay one…
“That’s your work. – W.M.”
