Teddy Sears 24

Fox's 24: Legacy Pilot Adds The Flash's Teddy Sears as CTU Head Honcho

He might not be wearing a red suit and winged helmet, but Teddy Sears will play a hero of sorts on Fox’s next 24 incarnation.

The actor — who currently portrays Jay Garrick on The Flash — has been cast in 24: Legacy, Fox’s in-the-works reboot of the clock-watching Kiefer Sutherland drama.

The potential revival-boot centers on Eric Carter (The Walking Dead‘s Corey Hawkins), a military hero who encounters a troubled return to the U.S., compelling him to ask the CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.

Per our sister site Deadline, Sears will play Keith Mullins, the ambitious and driven former second-in-command to CTU boss Rebecca Ingram (Homeland‘s Mirand Otto), whom he recently replaced as head of the unit.

Though Fox has only ordered a pilot for 24: Legacy thus far, the project will span 12 episodes should it be ordered to series.

    Okay well now I have to watch it.

    He’s brave. CTU Heads have a short shelf life! Hope he bucks the trend.

    Teddy Sears should be great as CTU’s boss in 24: Legacy. What does this mean for his current role as Jay Garrick in The Flash over on The CW?

    What a babe. Great to see he’s getting bigger work.

    Good…..he’s painfully boring on Flash. Get him out of there.
