Actress Mary Lynn Rajskub Returns for ’24: Live Another Day’

24 Day 8

Back in May we reported here that the FOX action drama ’24’ would be returning to the small screen after being off the air for over three seasons.

Of course, the lead role of Jack Bauer will, once again, be played by actor Kiefer Sutherland; but the new series – dubbed 24: Live Another Day – wouldn’t be the same without stalwart “go-to” gal Chloe O’Brian. That’s right actress/comedian Mary Lynn Rajskub will reprise her role in the much-anticipated return of the storied franchise.

Rajskub had this to say about returning, “I am thrilled to be working with Howard (Gordon, Executive Producer) 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”!

The premise behind ’24: Live Another Day’ will be following the 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. But no other storyline tidbits have been revealed at this time.

Since her days on ’24’ Rajskub has appeared in episodes of ‘Royal Pains’, ‘Modern Family’, ‘Raising Hope’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, ‘The Mentalist’, ‘New Girl’ and the return of ‘Arrested Development’ online. She has also been seen in the recent box office films ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ and ‘The Kings of Summer’.

An official return date has yet to be set by home network FOX, but ’24: Live Another Day’ is expected to premiere in the spring of 2014.
