And more cast members added to Season 5
Sounds like Jack Bauer better stock up on paracetamol.
According to TV Guide, Elisha Cuthbert has agreed to reprise her role as Bauer’s (Kiefer Sutherland) spunky but slightly-troublesome offspring in a multi-episode arc in the next season of “24”.
Cuthbert, who left the series at the end of the second season to pursue a film career, won’t be joined by her on-screen husband, Chase (James Badge Dale) in the episodes, says the site. (His fate will be explained though).
Though it’s unsure why Kimmy B’s going to be back in town, she’s apparently going to discover Daddy faked his death and she’s not happy she wasted those tears for nothing.
The IMDB lists Cuthbert’s episodes as episodes 5.7 – 5.10.
Some of the other faces coming to “24” next season – besides the ones we all know about, like Connie Britton and Sean Astin – include “Starship Troopers 2” babe Sandrine Holt, Oleg Taktarov [“15 Minutes”], Matt Battaglia [“Showgirls”], Denis Arndt [“L.A Law”], Sabrina Lloyd [“Numbers”] and Jonah Lotan [“NY-LON”].
As for Cuthbert’s blossoming film career – don’t look now love, there’s Maggie Grace! OK, how about fighting it out in a pool of jelly for us then?! – she’ll next appear in Roland Joffe’s “Captivity”, and will soon star opposite the likes of Joe Estevez (!) in the actioner “Conflict”.
