Nikita Exclusive: 24 Alum Suits Up as President

Cameron Daddo, who played 24‘s Season 7 veep, is now set to hang his hat in the Oval Office.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the Australian actor has booked a pivotal role on The CW’s Nikita, playing President of the United States Charles Grayson.

Details surrounding his appearance are being kept under wraps, but based on the fact that the dastardly Division is a rogue operation — one not even known about by the POTUS — it’s safe to say somethin’ is about to hit the fan.

What we can tell you is this: By the time the president is introduced (in Episode 22, titled “Crossbow”), Percy has upped his game in a major way and everyone — including Nikita — will be playing in the big leagues. (Inside Line has a bit more scoop on the Commander in Chief’s storyline.)

Daddo’s most recent TV credits include guest spots on Rizzoli & Isles, Leverage and The Mentalist.
