Let's Give Prison Break's T-Bag a Hand

It was a funny thing when word spread that Robert Knepper would be visiting the TV Guide offices here. Because as much as people wanted to meet the Prison Break star, there's still that apprehension. He does play T-Bag, after all, the most morally corrupt of the Fox hit's escaped cons. But when all was said and done, Knepper was greeted by many, and had this to share about Prison Break's debut season gone by and T-Bag's vengeance-filled — and single-handed? — days ahead. TV Guide: What are they going to do about T-Bag's hand next season?Robert Knepper: I actually called my doctor in L.A.  read more

That German guy in the ...

Question: That German guy in the Volkswagen "Unpimp My Ride" commercials looks very familiar — I think I've seen him in movies, but I can't place him. Can you help?

Answer: The actor in Volkswagen's "Unpimp My Ride" commercials is Swedish-born actor/director Peter Stormare, whom most people first noticed in Fargo (1996). He was one of the two hired kidnappers; the other was Steve Buscemi. He's also in TV's Prison Break, playing a hard-ass Italian prisoner. Stormare's forte is playing freaky, which the Volkswagen ads exploit to the hilt: I think my two favorite among his many bizarro roles are pornographer Dino Velvet in 8mm (1999) and the Devil himself in Constantine (2005). But I'll watch him in just about anything, because you can always count on his not-of-this-Earth spin.
