It had been considered a no brainer, but no it’s official: Mary Lynn Rajskub will appear as Chloe O’Brian in the 12 episode limited event series 24: Live Another Day. Rajskub is the first actor to board the series since it was announced in May and joins fellow 24 veteran Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer.
“I am thrilled to be working with Howard and the writers again – and, of course, Kiefer!,” said Rajskub. “There’s a lot more room to grow in my character…I’m going to start sharpening my computer skills now!”
24: Live Another Day is being written by Howard Gordon & David Fury and will be set several years after the events depicted in season 8. Across the 12 episodes, spanning 24 hours, former Counter Terrorist Unit agent Jack Bauer will be called upon to once again save the day. 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 and Teakwood Lane Productions. At present the only confirmed cast member is Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer, with Howard Gordon, Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Robert Cochran, Brian Grazer, Jon Cassar and Kiefer Sutherland serving as executive producers.
