Kiefer Sutherland joined executive producer Jon Cassar at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the latest installment of 24, subtitled Live Another Day, and his parting thoughts on playing Jack Bauer again. Here are the highlights:

- While some expected the panel would elicit news of another installment, neither Cassar or Sutherland discussed another terrible day for Jack Bauer.

- Cassar did, however, admit that a 24 movie is still a possibility. “We’re still talking about the movie,” Cassar told the crowd in Ballroom 20. “It’s still potentially out there.” READ FULL STORY

'24: Live Another Day' season finale: Everything comes with a price

[Spoiler Alert: Stop reading now if you haven't watched the season finale of 24: Live Another Day]

24 is a very noisy television show. For one, the show is structured around the sound of a ticking clock—it maintains the show’s rhythm. This clock serves not only to provide the series with structure and order, but with each tick it also reminds us of just how disorderly the world of 24 is and how close it is to full chaos if Jack doesn’t succeed in time. Additionally, most 24 episodes (especially this season finale) feature a musical score that runs throughout the episode along with the sound of gunfire and explosions. Essentially, there is a rarely a quiet moment.

It is because 24 is such a noisy that the silent clock is so important when it comes to honoring the passing of beloved characters. The silent clock helps mark a rest in the runaway plot and allows a moment for the death to register with the audience. It marks one of the few moments when there is nothing else happening on the show and there is just complete silence—something that is rare on 24.

All of this is a roundabout way of getting at what really stuck out in 24: Live Another Day‘s excellent finale: how important sound is to this show. Composer Sean Callery’s score plays an important role in creating tension, does a fair amount of the emotional heavy lifting, and helps make these character’s emotional responses more impactful.

Michelle Fairley talks '24' shock, Lady Stoneheart chatter

24-Margot.jpg

Michelle Fairley has made another show-stopping TV exit—only this one had fans cheering and laughing instead of screaming and crying. On Monday’s 24, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) threw Fairley’s drone-hijacking terrorist Margot Al-Harazi out a fifth story window after she dared to give him some sass-talk. (Plus she was handcuffed, which made it even better). But for Game of Thrones fans, the scene evoked some freaky deja vu: Margot watches her son get killed by Bauer before she’s killed herself, echoing Catelyn Stark’s “Red Wedding” fate. Below, Fairley talks 24: Game of Drones—and also addresses the Thrones fan uproar over a certain “LS.”

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Your character has been killed off again! What’s that about?

InsideTV Podcast: Terry O'Quinn reflects on Locke, 'Lost', and THAT ending

He played one of the most charismatic characters in TV history, so when Terry O’Quinn popped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about his new Fox drama Gang Related (which debuts May 22), we knew we also had to chat with him about his Emmy winning turn as John Locke on Lost. Apparently, we are not alone, as O’Quinn told us that people still stop him on the street hoping to crack the code on that character and the show in general. “That’s what people generally stop me for and talk to me about now is Lost,” says O’Quinn. “And sometimes they call me John and that’s fine. And I don’t mind it. I understand what Lost was and I count my blessings. I’m usually happy to talk to people. I don’t think I’ve ever had anybody say anything negative to me about it except ‘I didn’t get the ending. What the hell was that all about?’ And I’m like talk to Damon Lindelof!” READ FULL STORY

'24: Live Another Day': Mary Lynn Rajskub talks having a once-in-a-lifetime experience…again

Not only did the return of Jack Bauer in the premiere of 24: Live Another Day on Fox boosts the network’s ratings last Monday night, but it finally confirmed to star Mary Lynn Rajskub that the show, which had ended its original in 2010, was actually back.

“It’s still unbelievable to me,” Rajskub told EW. “I’m like – is this really happening? Obviously it is, but it’s exciting!” Even though its return is a limited event series consisting of only 12 episodes, half of what fans are used to, Rajskub promises that the action is very much the same and keeps up with the fast pace of the current television landscape. “At first, I was like wait, what, huh? But the way people are consuming stuff now and for the writers towards the end, I think it was getting difficult to do the 24. So, they came up with this concept where they could have 24 but in 12. When I read the scripts, they feel very much like the old 24 in terms of the pacing. I think the 12 are going to go by really fast when people watch it.” READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Tasha from 'Survivor' has strong words for Tony and Kass

Latasha Fox made it close to the end of Survivor: Cagayan. But not close enough as she was voted out during last night’s episode. How does she think she would fared had she made it to the final Tribal Council? “Give me the million dollars,” she said when she called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning. Indeed, Tasha is confident she could have beaten anyone and everyone in any combination had she made it to the end. And those aren’t the only strong words that came out of Tasha during our discussion. She also chides Kass for her move to flip away from the majority alliance and questions any and all credit that Tony has gotten for his gameplay, asking “Is Tony that good?” Tasha also names the people in her dream final 3 as well as the player that has impressed her most watching the season play back on TV. It’s a revealing talk, and you can now listen to the entire thing right here on the InsideTV Podcast. (The Tasha interview begins at the 29:20 mark.) READ FULL STORY

Kiefer Sutherland explains why one CIA operative wanted him to call his mom -- LISTEN!

Jack Bauer is almost back. Ahead of the May 5 debut of 24: Live Another Day, Kiefer Sutherland sat down with Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean for a SiriusXM Town Hall premiering May 2 at 7 p.m. ET on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105). Sutherland took questions from the audience, including one that led him to recount the story of a real CIA operative recognizing him on a ski lift and the conversation that ensued. The gentleman was a fan of the Fox drama but had one request: “He said, ‘I would really like it if you could call my mother and explain to her why I can’t get everything done in 24 hours,'” Sutherland says. “And so I apologized to him profusely.”

Listen to the clip below. Another fan, who’d marathoned 24, asked Sutherland which shows he’s binge-watched. Find out the answer in our second sneak peek. READ FULL STORY

'24: Live Another Day': Jack Bauer warns of a 'world war' -- VIDEO

Jack Bauer’s on the clock again in 24: Live Another Day, and he’s looking as conflicted as ever.

In the first episodic footage released from the new 12-part series revival, a somewhat haggard — yet always dangerous — Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is living in London in exile. Four years have passed since the events of the 24 finale, and now the American president is in danger. The U.S. government needs Bauer’s help, despite viewing him as a “traitor” and “psychopath.”

“If an American president is assassinated on foreign soil, you’re looking at a world war,” Bauer warns, while fully admitting: “There’s no going home for me.”

24: Live Another Day premieres May 5 on Fox.

Jack Bauer’s big day is getting a little more interesting: Fox has filled a role for an infamous hacker character in its much-anticipated 24 reboot Live Another Day.

The character is called Adrian, and he’s described as a charismatic hacker and a leader of the free information movement. The part naturally brings to mind Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Veteran feature film actor Michael Wincott (The Count of Monte Cristo, Alien: Resurrection) has been cast. This marks the first confirmed new casting for Live Another Day apart from the returning characters.

Live Another Day will film in London for a U.K.-set adventure, with original series stars Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver and William Devane are all on board, with Howard Gordon back to executive produce and Jon Cassar returning to executive produce and direct episodes. The 12-episode series will premiere in early summer.

Kim Raver, William Devane to return for '24: Live Another Day'

Good news, 24 fans! Kim Raver and William Devane are set to reprise their father-daughter roles on the 12-episode event 24: Live Another Day. In other words,  Audrey Raines and James Heller will be joining Jack on his upcoming London excursion.
