    Will McGoohan be in this?

    At least a cameo appearance. The Prisoner was awesome. It would be cool if they gave him a nod. Hopefully they don’t screw it up…

      Re:Will McGoohan be in this?

      To my knowledge McGoohan isn’t involved in any way. Don’t even know if he approves of the production.

      According to IMDB, he hasn’t done anything at all since 2002.
