Robert Knepper, perhaps best known as a scene-stealing villain on TV’s Prison Break, has joined R.I.P.D., Universal’s supernatural action movie starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges based on the Dark Horse comic.
Robert Schwentke is directing the movie, which began production last week in Boston.

The story centers on a murdered cop (Reynolds) who is recruited to work in the Rest in Peace Department, a police force comprised of ghosts who battle spirits unready to depart this world.
Knepper will play one of the spirits, known as a “deado” in the movie’s lingo.
Kevin Bacon, James Hong, Marisa Miller, Mary-Louise Parker, and Stephanie Szostak are also in the cast.
Knepper, who also did a stint on NBC’s Heroes, is coming off an NBC pilot titled Reconstruction. He recently signed with Innovative Artists and continues to be repped by Framework.
