Prison Break main actor Wentworth Miller better known as Michael Scofield is done and dusted with the action series.
The Hollywood celebrity further destroyed hopes for a sixth season after announcing he was done playing the role of a straight man. In a detailed Instagram statement, Miller said stories of straight men had been told numerous times and it was tiring for him.
He noted that he had been bullied, trolled and called out way too many times on social media but that was not going to shake him. The actor added that his experiences on Instagram did not inform his sudden decision to quit the series.
Miller claimed he was officially going to switch off comments on his post and block anyone who would attempt to bring negativity his way.
“Not because of static on social media (although that has centred the issue). I just do not want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told),” he wrote.

"This is my favorite IG account," someone wrote in response to a recent post. Thank you. I want you to know I saw that. I see the positive comments and DMs (a lot of them anyway). Affectionate. Supportive. Appreciated (by me). Obviously there are comments and DMs I appreciate less. Who are these people? On my page? What backwards-ass, Stone Age values country did they crawl out of? The U.S.? I won't be disappearing (too many cool things to repost). The ability to comment likely will. I'm not concerned for myself. I can't be "bullied" in this space. I have too much power. "Delete. Block. Deactivate." Etc. But I take seriously the possibility of queer kids visiting here, recently out of the closet or exploring the idea… I don't want them exposed to bullshit. On a related note… I'm out. Of PB. Officially. Not bec of static on social media (although that has centered the issue). I just don't want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told). So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons… I understand this is disappointing. I'm sorry. If you're hot and bothered bec you fell in love with a fictional straight man played by a real gay one… That's your work. – W.M. 🏳️🌈
