Benjamin Bratt, who recently lent his voice to both Despicable Me and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, has joined the ranks of “24: Live Another Day,” the new event series starring Kiefer Sutherland. Bratt will portray Steve Harris, the head of CIA operations tracking Jack Bauer (Sutherland) in London. “24: Live Another Day” premieres with a two-hour television event Monday, May 5 (8:00-10:00 PT ET/PT) on Fox, and makes its time period premiere the following week on Monday, May 12 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
Bratt’s Harris commands the CIA operation in London that is pursuing Jack, now an exile and a fugitive from justice. Supporting Harris are CIA agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski, “Dexter”), who is both resourceful and driven; Jordan Reed (Giles Matthey, JOBS), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and Erik Ritter (Gbenga Akinnagbe, “The Wire”), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative.
Retaining the real-time, nail-biting, fast-paced format with split screens and interweaving storylines, the “24: Live Another Day” also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver and William Devane (The Dark Knight Rises) reprising their original roles, along with newcomers Michael Wincott (The Crow) and Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Judy Davis.
“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.
