'24' at Comic Con: EP Jon Cassar says 'we're still talking about the movie'

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

'Bones' season 11? More '24'? Fox chief gives odds

BONES-FINALE.jpg

What are the odds that Bones will get an 11th season?

What about Jack Bauer returning to fight yet another day?

Fox chairman and CEO Peter Rice was asked by critics at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Sunday on the chances of both shows getting another season.

On 24, which had a somewhat modestly rated return this summer for Live Another Day, Rice said: “I loved this year’s season of 24 … I’ve always been a fan …we haven’t had a specific conversation…I’m sure we will in the future … It’s a wonderful franchise … they did a great job this year … when you look at the show itself, it has many more stories to tell.”

Rice noted in a huddle with reporters after the panel that 24‘s ratings saw plenty of gain from DVR playback. Yet since star Kiefer Sutherland says he considers Live Another Day to be the final season, the executive would presumably have to convince the actor to return. READ FULL STORY

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?
Michelle Fairley
: I know, I think every character now has to have some sort of demise. READ FULL STORY

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

'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.

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.

Bollywood star Anil Kapoor on adapting '24' and how it might revolutionize Indian television

24-anil-kapoor.jpg

24 may be slated for another run on Fox, but that’s not the only place where it’s being revived.

Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor—who crossed over to Hollywood with a turn in the Oscar winning film Slumdog Millionaire, followed by a guest-starring role as Middle Eastern President Omar Hassan on season 8 of 24 — is adapting the hit series for Indian audiences.

It’s a move that’s breaking convention in more ways than one. Such an ambitious TV series (which is set to debut overseas on Oct. 4) is nearly unheard of in India where primetime is dominated by soaps and reality shows. And Kapoor isn’t just exec producing, he’s also taking on the starring role of the Jack Bauer-esque hero Jay Singh Rathore. (Indian movie stars generally only make TV appearances when they’ve got a film to promote.) To top it off, most Indian shows don’t have seasons—soaps run 5, sometimes 6 days a week year-round. Kapoor  is planning to air 24 twice a week with hiatuses every couple of months similar to its American counterpart.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor explains what prompted him to adapt the series, how he’s doing it, and why it’s so risky.

Kiefer Sutherland: '24' movie 'hopefully' shooting in April

Kiefer Sutherland was at Fox’s press tour event in Pasadena on Sunday to talk about his new show Touch, but after eight seasons of 24, critics weren’t quite ready to quit asking about his previous hit.

On the long-anticipated 24 movie, Sutherland had some potentially good news. The production team, he said, will “hopefully be shooting at the end of April.”

As for Touch, critics asked several questions along the lines of “how is your new character like Jack Bauer?” and “did you just want to do something different than 24“?

Sutherland recalled he wasn’t necessarily looking to jump into another TV show and somewhat reluctantly read Tim Kring’s Touch script, about a father whose mute special needs son can predict future events. “I got to page 35 and I went, ‘Shit, I’m in real trouble here,’ because it was really beautifully written. The character was so vastly different [than Bauer] and the tone was so vastly different. I had to read it twice.” READ FULL STORY

'Simpsons': See Kiefer Sutherland go all Jack Bauer on Sunday's season premiere! Plus, Comic Book Guy on Nedna -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

The clouds are parting and the angels are singing: Season 23 of The Simpsons is almost upon us! In the premiere, “The Falcon and The D’ohman,” Homer will buddy up to Wayne (returning guest voice/24 vet Kiefer Sutherland), the new security guard at the power plant who is actually an ex-CIA agent haunted by violent flashbacks. But why wait until this Sunday to see Sutherland in Springfield? Below is an exclusive clip from the episode, which shows off Wayne’s egg-cellent superspy skills. And given that this episode also reveals the fate of Ned Flanders and Edna Krabappel as a couple (which was determined by a fan vote), we’ve also included the stakes-setting opening moment, which stars the show’s most romantic character, Comic Book Guy.

The most Tivo'ed show on TV is....

Thank God for DVRs, or fans wouldn’t get their regular fix of McDreamy. That’s right: Grey’s Anatomy is the most Tivo’ed show in the country for several years running – a pretty decent accomplishment for a drama that’s about to start its eighth season.

We asked Tivo, which began compiling data in October 2007, for the top 10 most DVR’ed shows and here’s what we got. The bad news: Three of these shows are no longer on the air. (Miss you, Greg Grunberg!) READ FULL STORY

Jack Bauer trends on Twitter after Bin Laden killing

24-KeiferThose Jack Bauer fans just won’t give up: The infamous character from Fox’s long-running drama 24 was a big trending topic on Twitter late Sunday in light of the Osama Bin Laden news – no doubt because many were thinking (hoping?) a Bauer-like embed was responsible for the “actionable intelligence” that led to President Obama’s press conference.
