I don't know if this counts as "in the media" though.....whatever.

The Chicago Tribune has several articles on the show today. (This link is to one of them, you can find the others from there.) Since the show is filming at the now-closed Joliet State Penitentary southwest of Chicago.
Cool article! I hadn't realized they were using the huge, intimidating prison from The Blues Brothers ("On Thursday nights, they serve a wicked pepper steak!")

"Prison Break" does not try to go as deep as "Oz," and its characters are not nearly as finely drawn. Instead, the series has a found a way to tap the horrors of prison life to create a suspenseful thriller.
Mr. Miller, who was in the movie "The Human Stain," does not show a broad range of emotion, but he projects an unflappable determination that confounds his fellow prisoners and intrigues the attractive prison doctor, Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies).
Prison life is scary, but it most of the time it is deadly boring. Luckily, "Prison Break" is not.

The boys were just on The View
I set the VCR for this, am waiting to get home to watch it. So they're both on? Sweet. The TV guide only mentioned WM.

Hope this is the correct place to post this . . . the first two epis will repeat tonite at 8, for those who missed it.
The media thread is for media appearances; we've got a separate thread for broadcast updates over at "Scheduling and Ratings." Please post any related updates there.

Oh, and I am totally having a brain fart...I can't remember the other guy's real name...grr! Anyway, they talked about him being in John Doe and how he was naked (and no butt doubles were used) at the beginning of the credits (I guess, never saw it). They said they film a lot in John Wayne Gacy's old cell and how creepy it is. One make up artist refused to go in the cell and do makeup touch-ups apparently. (Can't say that I blame them). He must know Hugh Jackman and said that after a night of too many drinks he went to see his show (is it a Boy called Oz or something like that?), and arrived late. Hugh zeroed in on him and picked on him throughout the show (must be what's done during this show to an audience memeber). He said something about being a little buzzed and couldn't quite figure out what was going on at first (paraphrasing of course).
That's all I can remember. I loathe those bitches on that show so it was hard to concentrate. But they sure do make a couch full of pretty when they put the guys side by side like that.

I would pay good money to see this broadcasted. Or, just to see the two of them standing next to each other. The combined hotness of them in those four square feet would explode in a hotness supernova.

It's Dominic Purcell.

Apparently, DP and Hugh Jackman are old friends, which was why DP went to see his Tony-winning performance in The Boy From Oz.

That's my best recollection of the PB mention.

My favorite part:
Sometimes I wonder if the producers of 24 put the producers of Prison Break up to it, specifically so that by comparison their show would no longer seem ludicrously unrealistic.
