iZombie has tapped Robert Knepper to play Blaine’s father in season 2, EW has learned exclusively.
The Prison Break alum will play Angus, a polished, articulate and successful businessman, who regards Blaine (David Anders) as a lifelong disappointment.

As for whether the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, considering Knepper’s other TV credits include villainous roles on Arrow, The Flash, Cult and The Blacklist, it seems likely this role will follow suit. He’ll first appear early in the second season.
iZombie returns Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
