The OC and Hostages alum Tate Donovan has joined the cast of Fox’s upcoming 12 episode 24 event series Live Another Day, TVWise has learned.
Donovan has been cast as Mark Boudreau, the White House Chief of Staff for President James Heller’s (William Devane) administration. Boudreau is described as an astute and strong-willed political advisor who is married to President Heller’s daughter, Audrey Raines (Kim Raver) – Jack Bauer’s former flame. His casting comes just as production on the series is set to commence in London.
Penned by Howard Gordon & David Fury, 24: Live Another Day will be set and shot in London and follows the exploits of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) who, now in exile, is being hunted by a CIA team when he learns of and attempts to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever. The limited event series, which Fox said could be followed by additional such entries in the coming years, is being produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Entertainment & Teakwood Lane Productions and stars Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, William Devane, Benjamin Bratt, Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Wincott, Judy Davis and Yvonne Strahovski.
