The FOX show just continues to add more and more new characters to the show.
The newest cast member is Michael Angarano. You might remember him as Jack's son on Will and Grace, and the star of the incredibly underrated drama Cover Me several years back, as well as the movies Sky High, Almost Famous, Lords of Dogtown, and Seabiscuit.
The new season of 24 starts in January.
The series begins Friday, June 9 at 8 pm (ET) on Animal Planet.
Frankly, I'm still flabbergasted at the casting of Sean Astin, and the waxing of Michelle and President Palmer. Leading into this week's recap, I figured to notice something that would catch me off guard or perhaps show something I needed to think more about. There wasn't too much big stuff, but after re-watching the first hour a few nights ago, I definitely see the concern that Palmer has on his face before commenting to his brother about being distracted because of his memoirs - clearly that's not all of it. Was he foretelling what was going to happen with the Russians and the treaty? Was he aware of the plot against him? So many questions!
And Chloe, with a tattoo! Jack leaves town for 18 months and the whole place comes crashing down!
