Earlier this month, Miller made headlines when he said he was stepping down from his Michael Scofield role because he no longer wanted to play straight characters. That prompted fans to call on his character to be written as gay. "Forgive me - I need to put my finger on something. In and around the 'reveal' I'm gay IRL, don't wish to play straight parts etc., I saw dozens of comments suggesting Michael leave Sara for T-bag. Or that T-bag will be 'looking' for Michael/me," he began a lengthy Instagram post on Saturday. "Is it possible, to some folks, T-Bag = 'gay' rep on PB? Maybe the ONLY rep on TV in their part of the world? Forget the homophobes + zealots (bec f--- them) - for the queer kids, the queer adults who will never come out bec coming out = death in their part of the world... is T-bag the best they can expect?"
