This season, Jack Bauer and the conservative minds behind 24 will face their biggest challenge yet. Feisty, funny, Liberal pundit Janeane Garofalo.
According to TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello, Garofalo, who’s signed on as a series regular, “will play a government agent who is part of the team investigating the crisis befalling Jack Bauer and Co. in the upcoming season.”
Three reasons why this TV Addict loves this signing: 1) We can only hope more of Garofalo’s WEST WING alum follow her lead. Martin Sheen for President anyone? 2) Garofalo will add some much needed humour to the heavy-handed show. 3) In her spare time, perhaps Garofalo can help out the 24 writers with some plot ideas. Rumor has it, the writers are having a bit of trouble this season coming up with new story ideas.
