Well, that may not be Johnson, but that is his character of which he’ll be guest starring as in Alcatraz, the anticipated FOX mid-season series that Johnson will be guest starring on, TV Guide reports.
As said, Johnson will be appearing as one of the series’ prisoners who dissappear from the famous prison, and then end up reappearing 30 years later, where FBI Agents (Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, and more) are tasked with rounding them up. He’ll be playing “Cal Sweeney, a smooth talking bank robber whose interests lie in safety deposit boxes and the secrets they contain.” In fact, you wait have to wait too long for Johnson’s appearance: he’ll be showing up in the fourth episode of the series on January 30th.
