Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood is set to make a TV appearance in popular show Prison Break.
The wrinkly star will play Malcom Mahone, the father of crazy former FBI agent Alex Mahone, in two episodes to be filmed early next month.
"I play Bills (William Fitchner) dad", said the grizzled multi Oscar winner, "everyone's always going on about how the two of us look so alike, I thought I might as well join the cast".
Eastwood started his career in televison westerns and made a memorable appearance in HR Pufinstuf, the children's psychadelic show in the early 70's.
He also had a recurring role in Fraggle Rock voicing the talking trash heap who offered useful advice to the Fraggles.
The Prison Break crew is full of praise for the elderly old fool.
"He's a legend in his own lifetime", said William Fitchner (Agent Mahone), "I never had a dad myself when I was growing up - I was a test-tube baby - so having Clint play my on-screen pop is a dream come true".
Wenthworth Miller, who plays Michael Schofield, muttered something in a very, very low voice - we're not sure what exactly he said but we presume he talked some crap about Clint being great and other rubbish.
