We at TV Squad have been getting an outpouring of questions about Eddie Izzard all day. Three separate Internet sources (that I know about and as of this writing) are claiming that the famously funny British actor/comedian has quit the cast of 24. He did one day of filming before the split. Apparently, Izzard is filming his own TV series now with Minnie Driver. It is called The Riches. According to these sources, Izzard has been quietly replaced with British actor David Hunt, who is married to actress Patrician Heaton. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find out any additional information about what happened with Izzard on the set.
