'Prison Break' cast and crew give to Children's Medical Center Dallas!
Post by: Sal
Until now, the cast and crew of the Dallas-filmed Fox show Prison Break have escaped the Writers Guild of America strike because there were already several scripts in the hopper when the writers hit the picket line.
But the last pages of the last script are being filmed now. At the end of this week, Prison Break production will shut down, the stars will go home and the crew will look for other work.
That's makes their recent generosity to Children's Medical Center all the more touching.
Renee Brown, wife of Prison Break producer Garry Brown, is a cancer survivor. For the second year, she organized a toy drive for kids being treated for cancer at Children's Medical Center.
Presents from T-Bag
That explains how T-Bag, one of the baddest villains on broadcast television, ended up handing out gifts on Monday at Children's Medical.
Actor Robert Knepper plays Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell on Prison Break. On Monday, he joined Prison Break intern Melissa Brown, daughter of Renee and Garry, for a trip to the hospital, where they handed out toys from the cast and crew to the young cancer patients.
"Everybody on the show was very generous," says Renee. "There were five bicycles. Someone gave $500 for DVDs to be shown in the infusion room while kids are getting treatment."
Renee adds that there will probably be another Prison Break toy drop this month, and she's already tapped show star Amaury Nolasco to make the deliveries.
