T-Bag is returning to TV.

After hitting the big screen with roles in last year’s “Transporter 3″ and “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” Robert Knepper, who played the murderer, rapist and bona fide a-hole, Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell, on the newly-canceled ‘Prison Break’ has been cast as the lead villain on the next season of NBC’s ‘Heroes.’

Knepper will appear in at least six episodes playing Samuel, a character The Hollywood Reporter says is “a Jim Jones type — charismatic but evil, with a twisted sense of humor.”

The Fourth season of ‘Heroes’ is set to air 8:00 PM on Mondays starting this fall.
