"24: Live Another Day" fan alert...Another trailer. Just released:
"24: Live Another Day," which will arrive on a TV set near you May 5, got an extended look during last night's telecast of Super Bowl XLVIII: Not quite a tease, but enough of a look to make everyone realize that Chaos and Destruction Happens Here. Some fans will probably (and are probably) intrigued by Chloe O'Brian's -- Mary Lynn Rajskub -- stylish new look: Sort of downtown punk chic. Quite obviously, she's out from behind all those terminals at CTU headquarters.
