"24" Cast & Plots Announced

This just in: JoBeth Williams (“Poltergeist,” “The Big Chill”), Peter Weller (“Robo Cop”) and Julian Sands (“A Room with a View”) have joined the cast for “24.” The fifth season premieres with a four-hour, two-night splash: 8-10 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15 (after the NFL playoffs) and 8-10 p.m. Monday, Jan. 16.
Here’s what Fox says about the characters and plot:
British born actor Julian Sands will play billionaire bad guy “Vladamir Bierko” while Peter Weller portrays “Christopher Henderson,” the federal agent who recruited Jack to counter terrorist work more than a decade ago. JoBeth Williams is Henderson’s wife, Miriam. All three characters will come face-to-face with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) as he desperately attempts to prevent the series’ most lethal terror threat yet on US soil.
Season five picks up 18 months after the exciting conclusion of season four, as national security is brutally breached. A presumed dead Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is actually living a new life with Diane (Connie Britton) and her son Derek (Brady Corbet). A shaky President Logan (Gregory Itzin) is running the nation, while composed Bill Buchanan (James Morrison) commands CTU alongside key operatives Curtis Manning (Roger Cross), Edgar Stiles (Louis Lombardi) and Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub). Also featured in season five will be Emmy Award-winning actress Jean Smart as First Lady Martha Logan. In addition, Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) and Audrey Raines (Kim Raver) return, while Lynn McGill (Sean Astin) joins CTU.

Come on down!
