The actor, who is best known for playing Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell on Prison Break, will portray one of the spirits known as "deados." Ryan Reynolds stars as a newcomer to the Rest in Peace Department, which is comprised of slain police officers who are tasked with bringing unwilling souls into the afterlife. Jeff Bridges plays Ryan Reynolds' partner, a longtime R.I.P.D. officer.
R.I.P.D. started principal photography last week in Boston. A June 28, 2013 release date has already been set.
