Exclusive: 24 Vet Jeffrey Nordling Endures Some Necessary Roughness

Jeffrey NordlingNecessary Roughness is turning to a former 24 badass in the Hawks’ hour of need.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Jeffrey Nordling will guest-star in an upcoming episode of the USA Network drama, playing a media relations guru named Glen Purlman.

It seems the team encounters a major crisis in Episode 16 of the series’ current second season, and only Purlman’s PR expertise can get them out of it — hopefully unscathed.

Necessary Roughness, meanwhile, wraps the first half of its second season on Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 10/9c, and resumes with new episodes — Nordling’s included — this winter.
