24 fan-favorite Mary Lynn Rajskub reunites with award-winning star Kiefer Sutherland when she returns to the storied franchise to reprise her iconic role as Chloe O'Brian, CTU systems analyst and Jack Bauer's (Sutherland) confidante, in the thrilling new tent-pole event series 24: Live Another Day premiering in spring 2014 on FOX.
Joining 24 in Season 3 (2003), Rajskub clocked the series' second-most episodes of any actor appearing in the series' eight-season run from 2001-2010. Day after day, the always-awkward and intelligent O'Brian was Bauer's CTU sidekick, as her tech mastery, unconventional tactics and know-it-all mentality proved critical in his heroic missions.
Here's what Mary Lynn Rajskub had to say about playing Chloe O'Brian once again.
"I am thrilled to be working with Howard (Gordon) and the writers again - and, of course, Kiefer! There's a lot more room to grow in my character...I'm going to start sharpening my computer skills now!"
24: Live Another Day restarts the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise. The suspenseful event series will follow the further exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer, taking up his story several years after the events of the final season. Once again, viewers will join Jack on a pulse-pounding ride in real time.
Rajskub, a highly prolific actress and comedian, has appeared in films such as Firewall, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, & Blonde, Sweet Home Alabama, Punch Drunk Love, Dude, Where's My Car?, Storytelling and Road Trip.
24: Live Another Day is a production of Teakwood Lane Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television. Howard Gordon, Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Robert Cochran, Brian Grazer, Jon Cassar and Kiefer Sutherland will executive-produce. The original series, which had its last American broadcast on May 24, 2010, was created by Joel Surnow and Cochran.
