Miller: 'I Was Nearly A Cop'
PRISON BREAK star WENTWORTH MILLER disappointed his parents by becoming an actor - because they wanted him to be a cop.
The actor says his parents would try to encourage him to become a policeman, but he always knew his heart lay with acting.
He says, "They were horrified. They'd invested all this time and money in my future, hoping to launch me into some sort of stable career.
"All my father knew was I didn't have a place to go every morning, I was sleeping in, and I didn't have a steady pay cheque.
"I would get emails from him reminding me that the LA Police Department had a volunteer programme, as a way of giving me something to do. But now, of course, they're pleased."
