Indeed, the Aussie actress has landed the female lead on the 24 reboot that Fox is working on, 24: Legacy, opposite Corey Hawkins. Her character will have a long history at the agency, for she used to run CTU.
Now married to a senator, the more-than-capable woman will be struggling with her decision to leave the counterterrorism agency that used to be the domain of Kiefer Sutherland’s indefatigable Jack Bauer.
I. Love. This casting news.
I mean, if we cannot get a spin-off prequel centering on Otto’s Homeland character, the duplicitous Allison Carr (that could still work!), then this will do. At least until the powers that be have her doing something really ridikolous that’s not edgy enough.
