‘Prison’ time for thesp

Fichtner breaks into Fox's hit skein

“Invasion” star William Fichtner will join the cast of Fox’s hit drama “Prison Break” next season.

Fichtner joins the series as it refocuses from the actual break to its lead characters’ experiences as they go on the lam. Thesp will play the federal agent who’s assigned to track down escaped prisoners Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield (played by Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller).

Shooting for the second season is set for Dallas, which the producers believe will be able to pass for several parts of the country (the show was shot in an abandoned Chicago-area prison last year).

Fichtner’s credits also include “Crash,” “The Longest Yard,” “Black Hawk Down” and the upcoming “Blades of Glory.”
