    It’s official: Fox is making a new version of 24.  Also official: The reboot will have an all-new cast, with producers currently seeking an African-American actor to take over for longtime series star Kiefer Sutherland.  [...] In another switch from the original series, the show will focus less on a lone wolf lead and is more of a “two-hander,” with the Carter character paired with a female co-lead.

Fox is developing a 24 spinoff that would revolve around a new twentysomething male terrorist hunter, , franchise overlord Howard Gordon confirmed to TVLine Sunday at the Critics Choice Television Awards. While there are no current plans for Kiefer Sutherlands Jack to appear, its entirely possible his iconic character could pop in and out on a guest-star basis.

    Are Jack Bauer or the real-time format at the heart of 24? Fox brass are likely wrestling with that dilemma as they are weighing a possible new limited series installment of the popular franchise. Thats because the network has been pitched a followup to last summers 24: Live Another Day that may or may not feature 24 signature star Kiefer Sutherland. In the the idea, which comes from 24/24: Live Another Day executive producers Howard Gordon, Evan Katz and Manny Coto, there is a point at which Jack Bauer could come in and fit organically into the story, or they...

    Freddie Prinze Jr. had such an awful experience acting opposite Kiefer Sutherland in 24 that he "wanted to quit the business," he said. The actor explained to ABC News that working with Sutherland was "terrible." "I did 24, and it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze said. "Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash. I'd say it to his face. I think everyone that's worked with him has said that."

    Fox is looking to restart the clock on 24. The network is looking to bring back the Emmy-winning real-time thriller as a limited series event, Deadline reports. No deals are in place in front of or behind the screen, but Kiefer Sutherland is said to be in early talks to reprise his role as Jack Bauer. Former 24 boss Howard Gordon, meanwhile, would likely oversee the revival, per Deadline. News of a possible 24 rebirth comes just hours after Fox pulled the plug on Sutherlands Touch. Thoughts? Does this sound like the best or worst idea ever?

    Four years ago "24" actress Mary Lynn Rajskub was quoted as saying "I got into acting to avoid politics." Unlike most of her liberal colleagues, Miss Rajskub didn't discuss the subject and acted very accepting towards conservatives. The actress appeared on the Laura Ingraham Show and was photographed in Rush Limbaugh's studio. Everything changed the moment Rush Limbaugh planted an innocent tiny kiss on her at 2006 Heritage Foundation Panel discussing the show 24. Outrage was the reaction amongst her peers. Ex-boyfriend Duncan Trussell supposedly asked "when he kissed you did he suck out your soul and replace it with...

U.S. government agent Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland, has saved the world time-and-again and been thanked for his efforts with any number of personal tragedies, including the death of loved ones. So it seemed natural that in the final seconds of his final show, he should face hardship...

    "Stuff Christian Culture Likes" #148 -- Jack Bauer. Men in Christian culture have giant man-crushes on Jack Bauer. He is the prototype of Christian culture's ideal male, save for the profession of faith. He's macho, tenacious and tech-savvy (all qualities that Christian culture holds dear) and he's working his ass off under an apocalyptic deadline, which Christians can relate to. They even find themselves praying for Jack Bauer during the show and then laughingly confess to this when discussing last week's episode of 24 at Bible study.

The professionals pointed out that in their experience, torture never works, and that the "ticking bomb scenario" itself is a fantasy that...

    Twentieth Century Fox's film and TV studios are conspiring to finally bring hit television series "24" to the bigscreen. The film side has hired scribe Billy Ray ("State of Play," "Flightplan") to pen the script for the feature version. Ray's pitch, which takes Jack Bauer to Europe, was a hit with Fox execs and producers of the high-concept television series. Ray also wrote and directed "Breach" and "Shattered Glass." Script is said to have come through "24" star Kiefer Sutherland, who's also an exec producer on the series -- and is said to be eager to turn the long-running TV...

    Jeez Louise. We're less than a month into 2010 and Jack Bauer has already been dragged back into the CTU fold, escaped torture, saved the life of a foreign head-of-state and uncovered a mole. If they keep up this pace for the next 20 hours, I'll be exhausted just watching 24. In a predictable meme, the Jack Bauer joke has surpassed the Chuck Norris jab in terms of hilariousness and poignancy. Example: Jack Bauer found out that Keifer Sutherland was playing him and immediately shot Sutherland because nobody plays Jack Bauer. Delightful, right? At any rate, Jack Bauer is an...

    The FBI illegally collected more than 2,000 U.S. telephone call records between 2002 and 2006 by invoking terrorism emergencies that did not exist or simply persuading phone companies to provide records, according to internal bureau memos and interviews. FBI officials issued approvals after the fact to justify their actions. E-mails obtained by The Washington Post detail how counterterrorism officials inside FBI headquarters did not follow their own procedures that were put in place to protect civil liberties. The stream of urgent requests for phone records also overwhelmed the FBI communications analysis unit with work that ultimately was not connected to...

Hitting the President where she lives and sending a foreign force into a surprisingly ill-protected White House made for a dramatic two hours, but also a kind of frustrating one: They got there via underwater route? The president turned herself up to a foreign force out of sentimentality - saving her daughter? Executive producer Howard Gordon addressed the questions in a teleconference...

    To my Conservative Friends: The much anticipated return of 24 starring Kiefer Sutherland had its 2-night, 4 hour premiere this week and for our bed-wetting, terrorist-coddling friends on the left side of the buffet table, it could not come at a worse time as the Messiah's coronation as Prophet-in-Chief is all but hours away as the looney bleeding-hearts count down every second with unrivaled anticipation... Barry and the Appeasers in DC are set to turn back the clock on fighting terrorism to September 10, 2001 as he has plans to all but gut our Anti-Terrorism efforts President Bush and his...

    After a nearly two year sabbatical, the series 24 has returned -- much to the delight of the political class in America which seems to have made the long-running drama a litmus test of where one stands on issues relating to war, to executive power, and to the role of the United States in a dangerous and unpredictable world. Indeed, while conservatives have claimed the show as their own since the series debuted shortly after the 9/11 attacks and embraced Jack Bauer as an authentic American hero, liberals have also admitted to watching the show and deriving satisfaction from the...

    I often wonder how liberals can stand watching 24, given how often and how effectively it challenges so many liberal premises. But then I recall how often the liberal squishyness of Law & Order annoys me, yet I never miss an episode. I guess if a show entertains you enough, or perhaps challenges your preconceptions effectively enough, most of us will put up with it. But irritate liberals it has. After the show was criticized - by the U.S. Army, no less - for its depiction of heroic CTU agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) torturing bad guys as a means...

    US conservatives say Jack Bauer from 24 has been 'kidnapped' by the new liberal agenda of President-Elect Barack Obama. As the hero of the television action series, Bauer became a modern icon of rugged American values and a fictional flag waver for the Bush administration's determination to defeat terrorists. The intelligence agent, played by Keifer Sutherland, has never been afraid to torture or shoot to kill while tackling villainous foreigners intent on waging war on the American homeland. But now US conservatives are up in arms that the election of President-Elect Barack Obama has led the show's producers to pander...
  • TV Review: '24' out of sync

    Premiering nine days before Obama takes office, "24" couldn't seem more outdated. If there's audacity in hope and nationwide belief in the necessity of change, nobody sent the memo to producers of "24." This is a series where presidential assassinations were the norm and presidents were corrupt or evil (if they weren't, then they were assassinated). Cynicism about politics and especially the presidency are the currency of "24" - beyond the whole terrorist bogeyman conceit.

    Now I don't pay that much attention to the liberal gutterblogs, but fortunately others do. Environmental Republican, took the time to not only look through them, but also to see what they had to say about the Mumbai attacks. It appears that liberals are practically silent on the attacks by the Muslim Terrorists. What's the matter... cat got their tongues? Not willing to discuss how their islamo-fascist brothers are butchering innocent people yet again? Not willing to admit that, after all, Bush actually was telling the truth about how terrorists need to hunted down and shot like the rabid dogs...
