Benjamin Bratt joins '24: Live Another Day"
And it gets even more interesting: Benjamin Bratt -- "Law & Order," "Modern Family," "Private Practice," "Despicable Me 2" -- is joining another franchise: Fox says he'll play the head of the CIA operations in London, tracking Jack Bauer.
(Therein lies a summer series.)
Here's the through-line that will bring you up to date on the other big names that have joined (so far):
Bratt’s HARRIS commands the CIA operation in London that is pursuing Jack, now an exile and a fugitive from justice. Supporting HARRIS are CIA agent KATE MORGAN (Yvonne Strahovski, “Dexter”), who is both resourceful and driven; JORDAN REED (Giles Matthey, “Jobs”), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and ERIK RITTER (Gbenga Akinnagbe, “The Wire”), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative.
"24: Live Another Day" launches Monday, May 5.
