That's right. We've been invited to an exclusive event for the launch of the Prison Break game which actor Robert Knepper will be attending.

There'll be a hands-on with the game and a chance to ask ol' T-Bag himself some questions.

Friday 19th in London.

Anyone fancy attending and representing AATG? All I expect is that you behave yourself and write us a decent hands-on preview.

You can call him whatever you like.

No love for T-Bag?! He's a pretty cool dude!

I'd go if I weren't so bloody scared of him. :)

I think I'm more scared of the guy that had this done, tbh:

Owchies, that's going to smart a little

I'd love to go myself, I'll be honest. It's just too much of a trek.

T-Bag is awesome.

I've never watched Prison Break, so i have no idea who this T-Bag fella is, but i bet he isn't as hard as trying to nail jelly to a wall.

If no-one else is interested, and if i can get the day off work at short notice, i'll offer my services. The preview could be long winded though judging by my first attempts. :D

I'd read your stuff. Can't be bothered with the ME2 article not because of the length but because the game dosn't interest me.

(And apparently Bioware are a bunch of homophobes, so booo)

I was moderately surprised to find that my female Shepard couldn't get it on with the female characters in the game, despite some positive signs indicating that she might be in with a shot at the bearded clam in a couple of cases.

Does seem daft when even titles with no substantial age ratings like The Sims will quite happily let you experiment with a plug for every socket.

(these gay euphemisms are crap I know).

Maybe they're saving it all up for Mass Effect 3.

Aye me too on the ME2 lacking lesbianism, my Shepard got it one with Garrus instead, also sho got somehwat more sexually predatory !

I'll check with the Boss about 19th February i assume, when he gets into the office.

Having realised who Knepper is, i wouldn't mind meeting him although thats more to do with Heroes than Prison Break.

Does anyone have any sensible (or not) questions for him on a Prison Break theme ?

I have a couple which I'll write-up properly when we confirm this. If you can get the time off, the gig is yours mate.

These are fairly lightweight questions just in case you need stuff to talk about. It's not like I'm dying to find out the answers, so feel free to omit whatever you want or just ask your own Heroes-based questions :)



So, what's it like seeing yourself as an animated 3D character? (Follow-up: do you think the devs have done a good job in representing you? Are you flattered by your 3D representation?)

You've provided the voice of T-Bag in this game. Is there any difference to the acting process when you're playing the character with voice, only? (Follow up: Most of the original cast returned for this game - did you get to interact with them much, or was the work done individually?)

Did you have any input as to how your character is portrayed in the game? Any scenes where the character acts in a way that perhaps you wouldn't have played it?

People must hate you in real life, assuming you are as nasty as the character you portray. Do you ever get angry stares or rude comments? (Follow-up: I imagine you must also surprise a lot of people who are expecting T-Bag but find that you're just a regular, cool guy.)

Ignoring the fact that T-Bag is a paedophile, racist and murderer, is there any part of the T-Bag character you like? (Follow up: T-Bag certainly has become a hit with the fans, despite his character flaws. Does that disappoint you, or were you aiming for a "love to hate" type of character?)

Are you much of a gamer? (Follow-up: You must have played Hitman, at least. You were in the movie!)



That's probably more questions than you'll ever get the chance to ask, but I think they are cute, non-offensive questions. It'll beat the other nerds who will obviously be like "In epidode X, why did T-Bag do X when clearly X is scientifically impossible?"

we were in the 'basement' of the hotel so i didn't have any signal. The Q&A session with Knepper wasn't very long, i didn't hang around to have my photo taken with him, just played the game for an hour or two before i wandered off.
