Scandal’s Dan Bucatinsky has been cast opposite Miranda Otto and Corey Hawkins in Fox pilot 24: Legacy, which reboots the 24 franchise with brand new characters and cast. Coral Pena (Blue Bloods) and Charlie Hofheimer (Mad Men) also have joined the cast as series regulars.
Written by 24 veterans Manny Coto and Evan Katz and directed by Stephen Hopkins (who helmed the original 24 pilot), 24: Legacy chronicles military hero Eric Carter’s (Corey Hawkins) return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
Bucatinsky will play Andy, a communication analyst at CTU who has enjoyed Rebecca’s (Otto) trust and is unhappily paired with bright, young, self-taught computer analyst Gia (Pena). Marcus (Hofheimer) is Eric’s (Hawkins) former partner in the Army Ranger unit, now suffering PTSD.
They join previously announced cast members Teddy Sears, Anna Diop and Jimmy Smits.
Bucatinsky is repped by CAA, Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management, and attorney Bob Myman. Pena is repped by Innovative and manager Michal Zecher at MZ.MGMT.NY. Hofheimer is repped by Paradigm and Forward Entertainment.
