'24' Adds Stephen Fry as British Prime Minister
Friday, January 24, 2014
24: Live Another Day
will include a special relationship, one that will include a veteran
British star. Actor and comedian Stephen Fry has landed the role of the
British prime minister in the reboot of the Jack Bauer FOX drama.
Fry will play Prime Minister Trevor Davies, a leader whose friendship with the U.S. president will be strained due to the political crises featured in the upcoming series. Fry has a long list of credits, though American TV audiences may know him best as Booth's therapist Dr. Gordon Wyatt on FOX's Bones.
The cast for 24: Live Another Day is filled with many new and returning faces. Kiefer Sutherland will reprise his role as Jack Bauer, along with Mary Lynn Rajskub as Chloe O'Brien, William Devane as President James Heller (former Secretary of Defense starting in season 4) and Kim Raver as Audrey Raines, Heller's daughter and Jack's former love interest.
New to the world of 24 will be Benjamin Bratt as the head of the CIA team tracking Bauer, Chuck's Yvonne Strahovski as a CIA operative in London and Tate Donovan as the White House Chief of Staff (and Audrey's husband).
24: Live Another Day premieres Monday, May 5 at 8pm with a two-hour episode.
