Lane Garrison isn't making a break for it — he's being released! The former actor from the Fox hit drama Prison Break just got his walking papers and will become a free man on April 29. In a high-class homecoming, Lane's childhood friend Jessica Simpson has arranged for his ride. "Jessica wanted to pick Lane up herself, but she can't," her pal explains. "So she hired a limo for a few friends to be there once Lane walks out." The singer hasn't visited her pal at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego due to security risks, but Jessica and Lane have been in contact since he began his sentence in October 2007. The actor was locked up for a December 2006 DUI that resulted in the death of a 17-year-old passenger.
