Wentworth even admits that the two days he spent working with Mariah, was in fact, one of his career highs - even topping anything he's ever done prior to Prison Break because it gave him so much exposure.
Wentworth describes himself as a very private person who likes to spend time just relaxing at home when he's not working. He enjoys swimming, reading, taking naps as well as going to different restaurants every week.

InMiller gave an interview to the German edition of InStyle Magazine in which the interviewer asked him if the rumors that he is gay were true.
Miller responded, "I'm not gay, but that rumor can't be killed. I'd like to have a girlfriend and a family. But I haven't met the right one yet. Until then I'm focusing on my job. I had to wait so long for this chance [the lead role in the TV show "Prison Break"] I savor every second on set even if it means 14 hours of shooting a day. His letter read, in part, " However, as a gay man, I must decline. I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government.

The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.
Taking a long awaited rest after working 14 hours a day for 10 months in 4 straight years on Prison Break Grew up in Park Slope, Brooklyn. He released his screenplay for Stoker under the pseudonym of "Ted Foulke". The reason behind that was because Miller wanted that his first screenplay worked in the industry by itself and not for being written by a famous actor.
Only when the film began his shooting he allowed to be credited with is real name. So when we got the chance to melt Miller's icy exterior and get scoop on his chilling character, we froze.
And we're done with cold puns now, we promise. We asked Miller six questions about The Flash, including whether his Captain Cold will differ from the comic book version, what it was like acting with his Prison Break costar Dominic Purcell on the CW show, and much more! Plus, he even gave us scoop on a possible Prison Break reunion that we absolutely need to see.
What can you tease about your new villainous role on The Flash? All I can say is that it's a great introduction. Glen Winter directed my first episode and he's fantastic. I totally lucked out there.

Glen had insights and camera moves that really helped me sell the character. How is it going to be different from the Captain Cold we know from the comics? I don't know if I can speak to that. Because I haven't read too many of them yet. I didn't grow up reading comics. Not because they didn't appeal. But they were frowned upon in my house. Although I did get deep into Elfquest for a beat. Anyway, I'd never read The Flash, I'd never heard of "Captain Cold" before getting hired, and as far as playing him on the show, my sense is that the writers have a take on the character that's slightly different than what's come before.
So I'm content to riff on whatever they cook up episode to episode. I know we're going to meet you in this week's episode, but what can you tease about your epic return in episode 10?
Not without getting in trouble. I've been trying to think of another situation where two actors closely associated with one show were recast on another show, playing two new characters, and I can't.
It feels really unusual.
