'Prison Break' star praises writers
Prison Break star William Fichtner has praised the quality of writing on the twist-laden show, in which he plays the drug-addled former policeman Alexander Mahone.

Fichtner told TV Guide: "Television shows live or die on writing. The joy of Prison Break has been the writers. They're great and they forever challenged me, which makes the journey worth it. I can't do a series over 22 shows just to get paid. I'd die."

He also promised several key revelations towards the end of the programme's third series, which was shortened due to the writers' strike: "Just when you think you know something, something else comes along... believe me, you're going to get a few twists and turns that are like, 'whoa, where did that come from?!"
