On Monday, we reported that Corey Hawkins had been cast as the lead for FOX’s 24 reboot series, 24: Legacy. Now, Variety is reporting that Miranda Otto has also been cast in a lead role for the new series.
Original 24 star Kiefer Sutherland has stated that he is not involved with the new show.
In the reboot, Otto has been cast as Rebecca Ingram, the former head of the CTU (counter-terrorism unit) who “is struggling with second thoughts about having left the counterterrorism agency.” Hawkins will play Eric Carter, a military hero who returns to the U.S. and ends up asking the CTU for help in stopping a large-scale terrorist attack.
So far, FOX has only ordered a pilot for 24: Legacy.
What do you think? Are you a 24 fan? How do you feel about the casting? Will you watch the reboot?
