It’s been confirmed that Law and Order star Benjamin Bratt has been cast into Fox’s 12 episode event series 24: Live Another Day, and now faces a daunting task: find Jack Bauer.
Kiefer Sutherland’s elusive character is currently in London trying to thwart a terrorist attack. Bratt’s character, Steve Harris, is the head of the CIA operations in tracking Sutherland’s fugitive character. It is most likely that Bratt’s character will be working with CIA agent Kate Morgan, played by actress Yvonne Strahovski and fans are already predicting romance between the two.
The return of 24 looks set to be an epic series, with the return of old favourites such as Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver and William Devane and obviously the new characters too. And, as if all this wasn’t enough, Sutherland is also hinting at a possible film, telling DigitalSpy that ‘the film is an ongoing situation. “There’s always an opportunity to do that.”
The original run of the series finished in 2010 and the reopening of the show with this limited series could very well lead to a feature film, so let’s just watch this space!
The series will air on Fox in the US and Sky1 in the UK. Production will start in February in London and is set to air in May.
