Prison Break star, Wentworth Miller who came out as gay in 2013 has disclosed that He Is Done With ‘Prison Break’ because he no longer wants to play straight characters.
In January during TCA, Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn said that there was a possibility of a new season of Prison Break. However, if that becomes a reality, Miller made it clear that he would not be involved.
In an Instagram post he shared, the Hollywood actor stated that he no longer wants to play sraight characters because their stories have been “told and told.” Miller who disclosed that he appreciates the positive comments and DMs he’s been getting, also stated that there are comments and DMs he appreciates less.
“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.
