O elenco de Wentworth Miller e Dominic Purcell juntos em “The Flash” é intencional?


Eu assisti recentemente ao Prison Break e agora estou assistindo The Flash . Um par de episódios da série, um antagonista (Captain Cold) interpretado por Wentworth Miller (Michael Scofield, do Prison Break) aparece. Mais tarde no show, o personagem de Miller está sendo apoiado por outra pessoa, Heat Wave, interpretada por Dominic Purcell, o ator representando o irmão de Miller em Prison Break.

O elenco desses atores foi planejado como um Easter Egg, ou foi apenas a sorte do sorteio que exatamente esses dois se juntaram no The Flash ?

Além disso, em outro episódio de The Flash , mais um rosto conhecido de Prison Break, Robert Knepper aparece como Clock King .

De comentários feitos por Wentorth Miller para Buzzfeed parece que ele foi, no mínimo, instrumental em recomendar Dominic Purcell:

Miller: During my first episode, in a conversation with [DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer] Geoff Johns, he said, “We’re trying to cast this Heat Wave character. He’s this hothead, aggressive, unpredictable, force of nature. Are there any actors you can think of?” I said. “Dominic Purcell.” I was 90% serious, 10% joking, because I didn’t think they could pull it off or that they would even be interested in such a pairing — not knowing they were huge Prison Break fans. They must have made the call that afternoon.

Purcell: They did.

Buzzfeed: What did they say?

Purcell: Wentworth dropped me an email and asked if I would be interested and I said, “Fuck yeah!” To work with Wentworth again? Yes. I was just excited to see Wentworth. It wasn’t about The Flash; it was about reconnecting with him and having a blast. Now that I’m on the show, I’m very thankful that the show is the success that it is. I’m humbled by it, I appreciate it, I love the cast, and it allows us to be operatic. As actors, that’s all you ever really want to do: You want to go big!
