Is Jack Bauer due for some love in the afternoon? And evening? And late-night, and next morning, and lunchtime?
Annie Wersching, who daytime-TV fans may know as
General Hospital's Amelia, has been cast on Fox's
24 as an FBI agent who rubs Jack the wrong - and thus, eventually, the oh-so-right - way. Previously,
Wersching was attached to Company Man, a Fox drama pilot helmed by some of
24's top producers.
Additionally, says the Reporter, Bob Gunton is in talks to join the show as a regular this season, reprising his role of former Secretary of Defense Ethan Kanin, now chief of staff for Cherry Jones' lady president.
