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).
