Fox confirmed via press release Monday that James Heller (William Devane) is not only in “24: Live Another Day,” he’s the dang president!
In season four of “24” Jack Bauer served as special advisor to Heller, who was U.S. secretary of defense under presidents John Keeler and Charles Logan. Bauer helped rescue Heller and his daughter Audrey from kidnappers.
But when we last saw Heller in season six, Jack Bauer was holding Heller at gunpoint, demanding to know where Audrey was and why Heller didn’t expend more effort to rescue Bauer from torturers in China.
As the miniseries (which launches on Fox May 5) picks up four years later, Bauer is still the fugitive he was at the end of the eighth season of “24."
And now we learn that Audrey has taken up with another of her father’s aides.
Look! Press release!
“24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY” APPOINTS TATE DONOVAN
New Thrilling Event Series Debuts with Special Two-Hour Premiere Monday, May 5, on FOX
Tate Donovan (“Damages”) will join the presidential cabinet of 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY as White House Chief of Staff MARK BOUDREAU. 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY debuts with a two-hour television premiere Monday, May 5 (8:00-10:00 PT ET/PT) on FOX, and makes its time period premiere the following week on Monday, May 12 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
In the highly anticipated event series starring Kiefer Sutherland, BOUDREAU is an astute and strong-willed political advisor who is married to President JAMES HELLER’s (William Devane) daughter, AUDREY RAINES (Kim Raver) – JACK BAUER’s (Sutherland) former flame.
Most recently seen in the network series “Hostages,” Donovan’s television credits include “Deception,” “Damages” and “The O.C.,” as well as memorable guest-starring roles on “The Guardian,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Friends” and “Ally McBeal.” Behind the camera, Donovan has directed episodes of “Medium,” “Deception,” “Damages,” GLEE, “Gossip Girl,” “Weeds,” “Nip/Tuck” and “The O.C.” Donovan’s recent film credits include the Academy Award winner “Argo” and “Good Night, and Good Luck.” He also voiced the title character of the animated feature “Hercules.” In 2011, Donovan starred on Broadway in the world premiere of “Good People,” opposite Frances McDormand. Other theater credits include “Amy's View,” with Dame Judi Dench; and “Picnic,” with Ashley Judd; as well as the Off-Broadway show, “Lobby Hero.”
In 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, the stakes are higher than ever for BAUER, who is now an exile being tracked by CIA operations head STEVE HARRIS (Benjamin Bratt, “Law & Order”), agent KATE MORGAN (Yvonne Strahovski, “Dexter”), computer tech JORDAN REED (Giles Matthey, “Jobs”) and field operative ERIK RITTER (Gbenga Akinnagbe, “The Wire”). The series also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub (“Firewall”), along with newcomers Michael Wincott (“The Crow”) and Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Judy Davis (“Life with Judy Garland”).
Chloe O’Brien (Rajskub), still on the Counter-Terrorism Unit payroll as “24” concluded back in 2010, is also no longer an employee of CTU -- and is now an Edward Snowden-like figure in hot water with the U.S. government.
Loads of writers involved in the old “24” series, including Howard Gordon ("Homeland"), Evan Katz (“Awake”), David Fury (“Fringe”), Manny Coto (“Dexter”), and Robert Cochran, are back for the mini.
