Get More: Casting News

YvonneThe time has come for a major 24 casting update: Yvonne Strahovski has boarded Fox’s forthcoming 12-episode event series, 24: Live Another Day, in a major role, TVLine has learned.

The Chuck and Dexter MVP will play Kate Morgan, a brilliant but impulsive CIA field operative in London. She joins franchise vets Kiefer Sutherland, Kim Raver, William Devane and Mary Lynn Rajskub, as well as Emmy winner Judy Davis, The Wire‘s Gbenga Akinnagbe and True Blood‘s Giles Matthey.

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 set to debut on Monday, May 5.

  • Some day this show will stop casting and actually start filming. It’s clearly not premiering in the spring at this rate.

  • She’s been seen on the set already. They are just announcing casting. Sorta like how they announced Mama Pope 2 days before her first episode aired

    • She hasn’t been on the set yet, she’s in LA and the show will film in London.

  • YES. Sarah Walker! I never watched 24 but I guess I’ll have to speed-watch the first eight seasons in order to watch her.

  • Like her on Chuck. Didn’t like her on Dexter. Cannot wait to see her getting back to kick some spy booty on 24: LAD when it debuts on May 5th.

  • Love her! I know a lot of people didn’t, but I loved her on Dexter.

  • Glad she’s coming back to tv. She’ll do great on 24.

  • Still think she’d make a great half sister or equivalent for Emily Thorne on Revenge.

  • Yvonne’s playing another CIA agent :) can’t wait!

  • No! I am a huge fan of Yavonne Strahovski, but honestly… she’s better than this. 24 was just a horrible series. Now I’m conflicted though. I’d normally skip 24 without a second thought, but Yvonne is in it now.

    Maybe she’ll be the mole and off Jack. That might make it worthwhile.

    • For the record, I actually know how to spell her name correctly. Either my thumbs or my phone were misbehaving.
