    Oh how happy it makes me to see 24 casting news. It is just a tiny sign that it will be back after the painfully long dry spell between seasons. And JV as a bad guy makes me all giddy. Awesome casting!

    Awesome news about Aziz. He’s always funny on Human Giant.

  • SimplyKimberly,

    Couldn’t agree more. Considering it will be about a year and half between seasons of 24. It’s nice to see the powers that be are pulling out all the stops.
