Regina King joins cast of 24
I've read about this on a couple of different sites now, so I think it's legit. Regina King has been cast in season six of 24 as Angela Palmer, the sister of Wayne Palmer and the late President David Palmer.
Angela, a powerful lawyer, has no doubt been added to fill the role of "crazy black female" left vacant by the likes of Sherry Palmer and Julia Milliken.
Alright, I kid, but I'm sure she'll find some way to get involved in Jack's plans since he won't be battling it out in China.
Regardless, I'm pleased with the add. She was fantastic in Ray. However, what really has me excited is far more spoiler-ish. It's after the jump if you care to read on.
The same sources are reporting that D.B. Woodside is also returning to the show next season as a series regular. In what capacity you ask? Well, perhaps you've heard about a recently vacated job (man, do I hate Charles Logan) called the Presidency.
That's right, we get another President Palmer. I'm honestly really excited by this. I thought Wayne was a fantastic character in season three and it was great to see him back this past season... even though he seemed to disappear after Buchanan hid him in his basement. It's a nice touch though, having him pick up where his brother left off. Anyone else as pumped about this as me?
