Prison Break

29 07 2006

I absolutely loved watching Prison Break, William at work switched a lot of us onto it and we were hooked. Out of the whole cast, in my opinion the most believable was the character ‘T-Bag’ the nasty little white supremacist. I used to comment that he did the best job of acting as he was so believable and that he would have a hard time playing anyone else.

Now why am I telling you this. Well it seems that the actor that plays ‘T-Bag’, Robert Knepper, has played me. Looking him up on imdb shows that he played ‘Alex Burton’ on a show called ‘The Visitor’ back in 1997. Scary scary scary.

So this got me thinking, how many Alex Burton’s have there been in TV and movies, according to IMDB, there have been 5. Four male and one woman:

Male characters:

  1. John Beck (II) (Alex Burton)
    . . . Deadly Illusion (1987)
  2. Robert Knepper (Alex Burton)
    . . . “Visitor, The” (1997) {Dreams (#1.3)} TV Series
  3. George Maharis (Alex Burton)
    . . . “Murder, She Wrote” (1984) {The Fixer-Upper (#6.15)} TV Series
  4. Scott Maslen (Alex Burton)
    . . . “Heartbeat” (1992) {Closing the Book (#11.12)} TV Series

Female characters:

  1. Heather Locklear (Alexandra “Alex” Burton (1990-1991))
    . . . “Going Places” (1990) TV Series

How many time characters have used your name in TV / Movies?
