  • Miller starred with the actors Dominic Purcell, Peter Stormare, Robert Knepper, Al Sapienza and Chris Vance in the TV series "Prison Break.
    • In these roles, the two characters he plays share similarities such as being extremely intelligent, not wanting to kill other people, have a great bond with the character played by Dominic Purcell, fall in love with a woman named Sara, and come back from dead.
    • In the episode "Fail-Safe" Leonard Snart says: "This isn't my first prison break" referring to his criminal past, but also to this series where he plays the role of Michael Scofield, trying to break out his brother Lincoln Burrows, played by Dominic Purcell, who is Mick Rory/Heat Wave in Legends of Tomorrow.
  • Going in line with his own homosexuality and ties to the LGBT community, Miller pitched his character, Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold as being pansexual, stating that if Snart were to meet someone with the right combination of wits, smarts, and badassery, he'd be into them regardless of gender.
  • Miller previously did the voice of Slade Wilson/Deathstroke in the second season of the animated DC series Young Justice, though he was later replaced by Fred Tatasciore.
