It's an abosolute sin that a man such as Wentworth Miller is so damm gorgeous and can play with women's inner feelings. And what a shame all us women cannot stand in line for a peck on the cheek!

Hey Wentworth, it's me the guy from Trinidad who sent all those posters to the prison-break actors, writers, directors, producers, etc. to fox studio... I sent enough right? I don't want fighting amongst you all now yer hear? I need autographs from my favorite people...yes t-bag too. so I'm waiting...very ...very patiently people. I just now bought "prison-break final" so I'm going to watch it in a while. well so far I'm so disappointed in t-bag, he was given so many chances but "no" he want to touch.( he hand fass) I'm sorry Belleck is gone (but not ever, ever forgotten)I can't believe Michael is gone even after all his sacrifices. could you imagine the bond or friendship possible, it would been at the end of it all between michael, sara,linc ,sucre,t-bag,c-note, mahone, belleck etc. even me too!
