It just wouldn’t be 24 without Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer. For a lot of people, it also wouldn’t be 24 without Mary Lynn Rajskub’s Chloe O’Brian. Brought on in 24’s third season in 2003 as a grumpy, antisocial computer whiz, Chloe evolved into Jack’s most loyal and trusted colleague. It’s not really a surprise, then, that Chloe and Rajskub are back for 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, Mondays at 9 PM on Fox. Although Jack and Chloe begin the twelve-episode season as adversaries, odds are good that they’ll reach détente before long. Rajskub, a Michigan native who does standup comedy and […]Read On »

Depending on how you look at it, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is either a miniseries about Kiefer Sutherland’s redoubtable ex-counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer, or simply Season 9 of 24, resuming after a four-year break in a twelve-hour frame, airing on Fox Mondays at 9 PM. Howard Gordon, executive producer of 24 for much of its run, is back on 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY. Gordon also has three other series in production – the multi-award-winning HOMELAND, coming back for its fourth season in the fall, FX’s new TYRANT and TNT’s LEGEND. This raises the question of whether Gordon is secretly affiliated […]Read On »

Christopher Meloni is so associated with his long-running TV drama roles, especially NYPD detective Elliot Stabler on twelve years of LAW & ORDER: SVU and prison inmate Chris Keller on HBO’s OZ, plus last year’s turns as heroic Col. Nathan Hardy in MAN OF STEEL and principled Leo Durocher in 42, people tend to forget he has a lighter side. Meloni voiced Spike in DINOSAURS, appeared as different characters in the first two HAROLD & KUMAR films, had a wryly amusing guest turn on Season 5 of TRUE BLOOD and can currently be seen on the big screen as a […]Read On »
