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.
