Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A longtime guest star who appeared in the occasional film, actor Robert Knepper finally broke through as a villain television audiences loved to hate, playing inmate and sexual predator Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell on the hit series, "Prison Break" (Fox, 2005-09). Prior to that breakout performance, Knepper spent a solid two decades playing small roles on television, starting with transsexual Georgia Buckner on "L.A.
