It still seems like a really strange dream that 24 is actually coming back for a limited run series. Kind of like how it was hard to believe that Netflix was bringing Arrested Development back to life. Needless to say I’m excited, and I actually think a shortened format could benefit the sometimes bloated show.
Entertainment Weekly is debuting a set of ten new photos from Live Another Day via FOX that you can check out here if you’re so inclined. They feature obvious cast members like Jack and Chloe, but also old favorites like Audrey and now president James Heller. This is the first time I’m hearing of that development. Other new cast members include Benjamin Bratt, Tate Donovan and The Wire’s Gbenga Akinnagbe.
I’m not sure how I feel about the Lisbeth Salander-ification of Chloe here. Unless they explain some big trauma that warped her into this, it’s a little weird to makeover her character in such an extreme way, as she was always very buttoned up and conservative. You don’t really go through an emo phase when you’re 30+ without a reason.
