Following up on TVLine’s exclusive report last month, Kim Raver has formally closed a deal to reprise her role as Kiefer Sutherland’s former onscreen love in 24: Live Another Day — and she’s not the only franchise vet returning for Fox’s 12-episode revival.
TVLine has confirmed that William Devane, who played Audrey’s father James Heller, has also inked a deal to appear in the London-based event series.
Raver joined 24 in Season 4 and remained through Season 6. When last seen, in the S6 finale, Audrey was in something of a vegetative state after being tortured and injected with mind-altering drugs by her Chinese captors — a development that led Devane’s Heller to forbid Jack from ever seeing his daughter again.
24: LAD, slated to launch in the spring, 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.”Follow @MichaelAusiello
