Deadline reveals that the first two new series regulars have been found for 24: Live Another Day; Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Good Wife) and Giles Matthey (True Blood). According to the site, "Akinnagbe will play Erik Ritter, a strong, sharp, arrogant and ambitious CIA field operative. Matthey will play Jordan Reed, a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech." Plot details are scarce, but we do know that the 12 episode event series will pick up the story four years after four years after the unsatisfying series finale. London will this time serve as the setting. They join Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, William Devane and Judy Davis, who will have a villainous recurring role.

Tony's back? The following Tweet was posted by 24: Live Another Day writer David Fury:

YES! So glad Tony is coming back. I wonder if he'll be the main villain again.

'after the unsatisfying season finale'

I issue a challenge to Josh Wilding. I'm going to see if he can last a whole week without editorializing in any of his news articles. I'm betting he won't last two hours.

Regardless, I am extremely excited for this. 24 is one of my fav shows ever

the ending of series 8 was a let down but a movie was supposed to carry it on but as we know that never happened.

However l'm exicted for this show, perhaps some peeps need convincing but as soon as we hear jack say `god dammit!` everyone will be hooked again.

As for Tony, l remember him being arrested unless he gets released to track down Jack.

That's funny, I've often said the same thing about Nolan
s Batman films - because they put me right the hell to sleep.

Jack Bauer could take Batman down with ease.

Just finished season 3 on Netflix today. I already watched 5, 6, and 8 on TV. 8 was decent, but they just recycled a lot of what worked in the previous seasons. Doesn't American have any other enemies besides the Middle East and Russia?

Almeida Lives! I can't wait for this to come back! I thought the last season was cool. You can't tell me you didn't love that moment when Jack Bauer bust through the tunnel in full body gear blasting away at the crooked Ex-President's car the look on the guys face alone was priceless!

"That's Jack Bauer!"
