Ashley Thomas 24 Legacy

24: Legacy Recruits Black Mirror Alum as Corey Hawkins' Big Bro

Fox’s next hour of 24 just became a family affair.

British thesp Ashley Thomas (Black Mirror) has joined the network’s 24: Legacy pilot as a series regular, TVLine has learned.

The potential series stars The Walking Dead‘s Corey Hawkins as Eric Carter, a former Army Ranger who encounters a troubled return to the U.S. He eventually turns to the CTU for help in saving his life and stopping what could potentially be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.

Thomas will appear in the drama as Isaac Carter, Eric’s older brother who remains angry about their bitter past. (Eric is now married to Isaac’s former girlfriend, which goes against every letter of the bro code.)

The actor/musician — whose TV credits also include the U.K.’s Criminal Justice and Top Boy — joins Homeland‘s Miranda Otto (as the former CTU head), The Messengers‘ Anna Diop (as the aforementioned spouse), Sons of Anarchy‘s Jimmy Smits (as a powerful U.S. senator) and Masters of Sex‘s Teddy Sears (as the newest CTU boss).

    No offense to new actors and actresses. we want JACK BAUER (KIEFER SUTHERLAND)! KIEFER SUTHERLAND IS 24! Without him, don’t name it 24!

    Your advertising and marketing should be smart about this. Name something else…not 24: Legacy. Not 24: Ultimatum

    The announcement that Jimmy Smits is one of the stars almost had me interested, but am back to being bored with the whole idea. We don’t need a spin-off.. we need 24, with Jack and Chloe and a bit of Yvonne Stahovsky would be great too.

    This whole 24 thing reminds me of the recent movie with Jeremy Renner that was titled “The Bourne Legacy.” As much as I like Renner, he isn’t Bourne. Matt Damon is. His character wasn’t even supposed to be Jason Bourne. I think it was Alex-something…??
    And yet the producers put the name Bourne in the title…and it was a flop.
    That’s what I see happening with this 24 continuation.

    I never could get into the original 24, but I LOVE 24 Legacy! The show keeps me on the edge of my seat the whole hour. The cast and story line is fantastic. I hope they bring it back for another season.
