OMGSH, if you thought Hollywood's Wentworth Miller was hot, then you'll be just be drooling over international Tunisian actor Dhafer L’Abidine.

The two babes not only both boast stunning good looks, but they also happen to share the character name of Michael Scofield. Handsome L’Abidine has been cast as the star of the Arab adaptation of the hit Fox TV series “Prison Break.” Miller played the original Scofield from 2005-2009.
“I am very happy to be part of the Arab version of such an exciting and classic TV series,” L’Abidine said in a statement.

We won't have to wait long to see L’Abidine in actions as Variety reports that shooting is set to take place as early as next year.
We think the Arab actor will make a perfect Michael Scofield - he's got the looks, body and mystery all associated with this iconic lead character.
Although L’Abidine is fairly new to the acting world - he's a former professional soccer player - the art comes to him naturally.
He's starred in the Levant TV drama "24 Qarats" last Ramadan, and in other popular Arab TV series including “Niran Sadiqa” (Friendly Fire), “Fark Taoukit” (Different Timing) and “Maktoub” (Written).
But the silverfox's thespian roles aren't limited to the Arab world; he's had a part in the Hollywod blockbuster "Sex and the City 2," and even recently hosted the Middle Eastern version of British game show “The Cube” for Dubai TV.
Some of his other roles included appearances in several high-profile British TV shows such as the BBC’s “Spooks,” Sky’s “Strike Back,” and ITV’s “Wallender.”
Prison Break - Arab edition - will be produced by Fadi Fahim and the legendary Egyptian director Marwan Hamed through their Cairo-based Lighthouse Films shingle. Meanwhile, Egyptian film and TV director Hussein El Menbawy will direct the much-anticipated series.
Dubai-based Orbit Showtime Network OSN has the rights to the show once it's been released.
