Wentworth Miller broke the hearts of Prison Break fans everywhere when he revealed he wasn’t interested in reviving Michael Scofield because the character wasn’t gay. In fact, he confirmed on Instagram he was officially stepping out of the role. In real life, Wentworth is a happily homosexual man. And, he made some pretty big waves when he came out of the closet.
That being said, he isn’t interested in putting even one toe back inside that closet. Likewise, he believes one of the best ways for him to support the LGBTQ community is to stop stepping into straight roles. The actor wants to proudly embrace his sexuality. And, he’s only interested in homosexual roles.
The cast was wildly supportive of Wentworth’s decision to ditch Michael
It’s a well known fact that Dominic Purcell has been gunning hard for Prison Break Season 6. He frequently testes his followers with unsubstantiated updates. So, we can only assume he was a little devastated when he learned Wentworth Miller would not return to the series. That being said, Dom remained supportive of his onscreen brother. He wished him the best. And, he noted it has been a pleasure working with him.
Sarah Wayne Callies often shares Prison Break related content on Instagram as well. Fans have taken this to mean she would also return to the show if the opportunity ever arised. She, like Dom, was very supportive of Wentworth Miller’s decision.
To all the fans, know this: the cast of prison break is a queer friendly space. we stand with – and among – our friends & family in the LGBTQ+ community with full throated support for their rights and artistic work. all the time. always. And if that’s a problem for anyone, to quote a good man, ‘that’s your work.'”
Some Prison Break fans, however, had an issue with the decision
Prison Break fans have been obsessing about Season 6 since Season 5 ended. As those who follow the series know, Season 5 was a pretty shocking revival of a series that had been canceled for years. With so much love and support, Fox decided to bring the series back for one more limited season. And, it was a huge hit with the fans. Plus, the cast really seemed to enjoy getting together one more time.
Unsurprisingly, Prison Break fans are not happy Wentworth Miller is walking away from the series. Mostly because Michael Scofield is the face of the series. There has been a lot of talk about another season. But, they don’t know how it could happen without him.
Could Michael Scofield be gay?
So, what did Prison Break fans do? Well, they found a solution. They suggested Michael Scofield could be homosexual. They noted he could just leave Sara and be gay. Fans have proceeded to flood Wentworth’s Instagram making this suggestion.
