24All right, Fox, I've got a couple of bones to pick with you. First of all, you've completely spoiled me rotten with this four-hour premiere in just two nights — how am I supposed to cope for a whole week without another episode? And like it's not enough that you've totally got me wrapped around your finger, then you have to go and rub it in by showing Golden Globes press-room footage during the commercials, while I'm TiVoing it to watch 24 "live." Look, we spoiler-free freaks here on the West Coast have a hard enough time maintaining media blackouts with the time delay — you're gonna have to help us out a little. You won already; I'm watching your network. I've seen the Idol and Bones promos approximately 300 times in between all the Kiefer-based butt read more

Can We Get 24's Chloe to Break?

Mary Lynn Rajskub, 24

That glorious glowing digital clock is ticking away again, now that Fox's 24 has returned with a four-hour Season 5 premiere (continuing tonight at 8 pm/ET). TVGuide.com invited quirky little Chloe, aka Mary Lynn Rajskub (rhymes with "rice cub," says the actress), to leak to us some top-secret vittles.

TVGuide.com: So what am I missing by not bothering with the Season 5 "prequel" packed in the newest 24 boxed DVD set?
Mary Lynn Rajskub:
Oh, you're missing both of our hairdos — Jack Bauer has a great hairdo, and my hair is down, which is exciting. OK, it's not really that exciting. I just get to have a different outfit for a minute. It all just kind of tips off the new season, which I guess read more

24 + 2 MORE

With Season 5 now less than a month away, Fox's 24 has announced two more hires: Two-time Tony Award nominee Jayne Atkinson will fill the role of Homeland Security official Karen Hayes, while Tony winner Stephen Spinella will play her subordinate, Miles. These additions, mind you, are in addition to Connie Britton as Jack's new honey, Sean Astin as a CTUer, Julian Sands as a baddie named Bierko, Jean Smart as President Doofball Logan's wife, and Peter Weller and JoBeth Williams as a federal agent and his wife. These new folks are so gonna steal time from my "Chloedgar" romance, aren't they? read more

Please give us something new ...

Question: Please give us something new on 24! Is Michelle really going to die in the first two episodes?


Answer: (SPOILER ALERT) If you read Matt Mitovich's Q&A with Kim Raver, you can pretty much figure out that Audrey will be back at CTU this season, since she gushed about working with new cast member Sean Astin. (Astin's character is employed by CTU.) And as I said last week, I'm tabling any further discussion of Michelle until after the season premiere in January.

Got any scoop on 24? ...

Question: Got any scoop on 24? Tumbleweeds are blowing across!


Answer: Not much more to tell aside from what was announced last week: The fifth day — kicking off with a four-hour, two-night premiere on Jan. 8 and 9 — picks up 18 months later, with Jack leading a secret life with new squeeze Diane (Connie Britton) and her son Derek (Brady Corbet). And over at CTU, Bill, Curtis, Edgar and Chloe will be joined by recovering hobbit Sean Astin, who is joining the cast.

HOBBIT JOINS 24

The Lord of the Rings hobbit Sean Astin has joined the cast of Fox's 24. Although he will work for CTU (which will still be headed by James Morrison's Bill Buchanan), the net isn't spilling another single bean about Astin's character, and it certainly isn't admitting that he will have furry feet. The clock starts ticking again on Jan. 8. read more

Sean Astin Dishes LOTR

Lord of the Rings star Sean Astin continues to live in New Zealand, even though his days playing heroic hobbit Samwise Gamgee are done. Now, he's shooting scenes as the poet/bard Linus in Hercules, an NBC miniseries slated for next May. He still has LOTR on his mind, however, having just published his new book, There and Back Again: An Actor's Story. Naturally, Astin borrowed the title from Bilbo Baggins' autobiography. He also shared some opinions his costars are unhappy about.TV Guide Online: Congrats on your new book. Is it a behind-the-scenes diary of your LOTR days?Sean Astin: No. It's just me trying to give voice to some thoughts and feelings that I had. I'm trying, in some way, to place myself in Hollywood history. As a second-generation actor whose parents [Patty Duke and John Astin] were popular cultural icons in the '60s, and someone trying to make my way in the industry, I'm just trying to say, "H read more
