CTU's been reactivated, relocated to New York, upgraded - lotsa glass and a slick access tunnel. It's now run by MBA-schooled and razor-sharp BRIAN HASTINGS (Mykelti Williamson: Bubba, Forrest Gump). Running CTU’s Field Operations is COLE ORTIZ (Freddie Prinze Jr.), an ex-Marine who wants to follow in JACK BAUER’s footsteps. Ortiz is engaged to expert data analyst DANA WALSH (Katee Sackhoff: Battlestar Galactica) who collaborates with systems analyst ARLO GLASS (John Boyd: The Notorious Bettie Page) inside CTU. Arlo fancies Dana...but what's lurking in Dana's past?
ROB WEISS (Chris Diamantopoulos, The Starter Wife) is PRESIDENT ALLISON TAYLOR’s (Cherry Jones) new Chief of Staff - replacing last season's Chief of Staff ETHAN KANIN (Bob Gunton) who's now Secretary of State. MEREDITH REED (Jennifer Westfeldt: Grey’s Anatomy) is an ambitious journalist with ties to PRESIDENT HASSAN of the Islamic Republic of Kamistan (Anil Kapoor: Slumdog Millionaire) who has come to USA on a peace mission.
It's been confirmed that TONY ALMEIDA (Carlos Bernard) will not be returning for season 8, but OMG! Why's crazed ex-president CHARLES LOGAN (Gregory Itzin) coming back?
A 24 MOVIE?? Bring it on! And remember: in 24, anything's possible!
