The actress is the first 24 outsider to come on board, joining franchise vets Kiefer Sutherland, Kim Raver, William Devane and Mary Lynn Rajskub.

24: LAD, which will be shot in London and pick up four years after the series finale, will essentially be 24 “compressed over 12 weeks,” Fox president Kevin Reilly previously explained. “It will go chronologically over the day, but it will skip hours.” It’s slated to debut in the spring.

    i hope Audrey is the mole and this time Jack won’t hold back on enhanced interogation!

    Surely there will be some way to work Carlos Bernard into a twelve episode storyline ! Tony Almeda is even more shades of gray than Jack himself.

    Really hope Tony Almeida aka Carlos Bernard is on the verge of returning to the forefront and I hate to wonder if he can still be bad like he did in Season Seven.

      Tweet from David Fury “Just had dinner with Carlos Bernard. Read into that what you will.”

      So here’s hoping!

      Also actress isn’t the first 24 outsider to come on board, Michael Wincott was!

        The only way I will watch is if CB is back as Tony. Otherwise, I just don’t care. After season one I only watched for him!!!!

    I dunno how they gonna skip hours.Maybe Jack Bauer can go to the bathroom and eat a nice lunch in between action :).

  5. Chlojack says:

    Wonder how the time jumps will occur. Hopefully it will be divided something like this:

    Episodes 1-4 (12PM-4PM) (Episode 2 takes place at 1PM according to Jon Cassar)
    6 hour time jump
    Episodes 5-8 (10PM-2AM)
    6 hour time jump
    Episodes 9-12 (8AM-12PM)

  6. Michael says:

    Maybe they’ll timejump during the times Jack has to take a dump or eat or sleep? :)

    Bring back Tony!!!!!!
