Rest-assured “24” fans, Jack Bauer will have his
crabby trusty sidekick by his side when the latest chapter of the CTU thrill ride returns. Mary Lynn Rajskub has officially joined the cast of the miniseries “24: Live Another Day,” Fox announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Los Angeles.
Rajskub will reprise her role as CTU systems analyst Chloe O’Brian and reunite with Kiefer Sutherland‘s unstoppable super-agent Jack Bauer as “Live Another Day” restarts the “24” franchise. The story picks up several years after the events of the final season of “24,” which wrapped after eight seasons in 2010.
“I am thrilled to be working with Howard [Gordon] and the writers again — and, of course, Kiefer!,” said Rajskub. “There’s a lot more room to grow in my character…I’m going to start sharpening my computer skills now!”
After a “24” feature film failed to get off the ground, Fox decided to bring Jack back for a limited-run series premiering in spring 2014.
