Jack is back and he's ready to kick some more ass to save the world! Fox has released an exciting new trailer for his next great adventure in 24: Live Another Day, and it looks like it's going to be an incredible series. You can't go wrong with 12 episodes of Kiefer Sutherland being a badass.
Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series once again will follow the exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer. Four years ago, Jack was a fugitive from justice. Now an exile, he nevertheless is willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster. Tracking Jack are CIA head Steve Harris (Benjamin Bratt); CIA agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski), who is both resourceful and ruthless; Jordan Reed (Giles Matthey), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and Erik Ritter (Gbenga Akinnagbe), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative.

There’s no doubt that 24 was such a unique concept and show and although they’ve tweaked it to 12-episodes for Jack Bauer’s comeback in 24: Live Another Day, there’s still a lot of excitement around the return of Kiefer Sutherland’s agent.
This first full trailer, after the previous teaser, gives us basically what we’d expect but also – a little of what we want! This time he’s been moved to London and Jack’s here to head off a massive terrorist attack but, of course, he’s also being hunted down by American forces dispatched by President James Heller (William Devane).
It’s usual kind of day isn’t it? There’s also an impressive co-starring cast that includes Stephen Fry, John Boyega, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Yvonne Strahovski, Benjamin Bratt, Giles Matthey, Tate Donovan, Kim Raver, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Michael Wincott and Judy Davis. »

Australian actress Wendy Hughes dead at 61 (photo: Wendy Hughes in ‘Newsfront’) Australian film, television, and stage actress Wendy Hughes, best known internationally for the big-screen dramas My Brilliant Career and Careful, He Might Hear You, died of cancer early today, March 8, 2014, in Sydney. Hughes (born on July 29, 1952, in Melbourne) was 61. Wendy Hughes’ film career kicked off in the mid-’70s, with Tim Burstall’s psychological drama ‘Jock’ Petersen / Petersen (1974), in which she plays the wife of a college professor who becomes romantically involved with a married student (Jack Thompson). "I spent a lot of the time naked and doing sex scenes," Hughes would later recall about her work in ‘Jock’ Petersen, "because in the seventies you all had to do that." In 1979, Hughes landed a key supporting role in the international arthouse hit My Brilliant Career, Gillian Armstrong’s late 19th-century-set tale of an independent-minded young woman (a Katharine Hepburn »

Wendy Hughes, who has died in Sydney aged 61, will be remembered by her peers as one of the finest actors of her generation.
Hughes won the AFI award for best actress for Careful, He Might Hear You in 1983 and was nominated on six other occasions, for Newsfront, My Brilliant Career, Lonely Hearts, My First Wife, Echoes of Paradise and Boundaries of the Heart.
.She was a brilliant actress who set the standard and was pioneering for her era,. filmmaker Philippe Mora, who was a close friend in the 1980s and early 1990s, told If.
.In my opinion without Wendy there would have been no Judy Davis, no Nicole Kidman and no Cate Blanchett. If timing had been different she would have been a major international star. As it is she leaves a legacy of perfect performances as one of Australia's greatest actresses..
Mora wanted to cast Hughes as the female »

Thanks to EW we have our first official photo from the highly anticipated return of Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in 24: Live Another Day. The photo also features his trusty partner, Chloe, played by Mary Lynn Rajskub, and it looks like they are running away from some kind of fire or explosion, which is typical for these two. Rajskkub offers up a little bit of information on her character's change and style, saying that she joined some WikiLeaks-type organization in London.
''I'm more hardened. I've seen more of the world. When you pick up with me, I've completely turned against the government. It's a very dark, very damaged look, It's a bit of an Fu to the world.''
It kind of makes sense that she would go down that road after all of the shit she's been through.

We have six days ’til the Oscars, and that means we have six more days to celebrate one of the most intimidating, established rosters of Best Actress nominees in years. Together the ladies on this list have been nominated 38 times. That’s a serious nomination number, guys. We’re getting into an Alison Krauss/Grammys situation now. Man. Let’s get Judi Dench a fiddle.
The poll question is simple: What are your favorite movies starring this year’s Best Actress nominees? I’ve selected my responses below. Fight for your own (and mine, if you can get around to it).
Winner: Blue Jasmine
Tough one. Elizabeth leaves a lasting impression, and re-watching it recently, I was surprised to find how much Blanchett reminded me of her fellow Australian Judy Davis. Even though she looks like an austere hybrid of Gwyneth Paltrow and a California Suite-era Maggie Smith, »

What’s my favorite Woody Allen movie? When I was asked, along with several other Variety staffers, to answer that question — long before Dylan Farrow posed it rhetorically to the world — for a 2013 sidebar to my own Allen interview, I picked “Husbands and Wives,” Allen’s raw and formally inventive 1992 drama of two married couples variously parting ways and reuniting amidst a roundelay of infidelities. That movie famously premiered while the director’s separation from Mia Farrow was still playing out daily in the headlines, and had reportedly been shot just as Mia was learning of Woody’s nascent affair with her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.
All of this powered “Husbands” — one of Allen’s rare movies to be released nationwide on its first weekend — to above-average box office, but with all the life-imitates-art parallels in the press, the movie’s actual merits got somewhat lost in the shuffle. There were two Oscar nominations, »

(Cbr) If Michelle Fairley thought the Lannisters were tough adversaries, wait until she meets Jack Bauer. Deadline reports the "Game of Thrones" actress has been cast on "24: Live Another Day", Fox’s upcoming revival of the real-time thriller. Fairley will play Margot, a British national and the widow of a notorious terrorist. It’s the same role that Judy Davis exited just last week, and arguably, an even more exciting casting choice. "24: Live Another Day", starring Kiefer Sutherland and a vast array of notable actors (including Stephen Fry and Yvonne Strahovski), premieres on May 5. »

Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston star in a different kind of romcom as the perfect couple whose relationship goes into a downward spiral following a row - over lemons. The pair create a wonderfully toxic atmosphere (although they fell for each other on set) and the script provides plenty of sharp one-liners for Vaughn's regular sidekick Jon Favreau and the ever-spiky Judy Davis. A love story for the unromantic. »
We can now confirm that Donal Logue will indeed by joining the new Fox series, Gotham, as "Jim Gordon’s partner and mentor, the rough-around-the-edges Detective Harvey Bullock [who] plays loose with police procedure, but he gets results … and he does it with old-school, forceful panache." When I think "forceful panache", I think Donal Logue (but seriously, he's a great fit for the part). Logue joins Ben McKenzie in the lead role as Detective James Gordon, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin). Scripted by Bruno Heller, Gotham explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the above-mentioned villains that made Gotham famous. Danny Cannon will direct and executive produce the pilot. Hit the jump for news on Michelle Fairley joining 24: Live Another Day. TV Line reports that Fairley will replace »

When Barton Fink actress Judy Davis dropped out of 24: Live Another Day last week, Fox was left scrambling to find a replacement so that they could keep to their tight filming schedule. With the 12-episode miniseries event set to bow in May, time is one luxury that Fox does not have at the moment. Luckily, the network has secured another actress to take on Davis’s large role: Game of Thrones‘ Michelle Fairley.
Fairley, who played the ill-fated Catelyn Stark on the HBO high fantasy series, will take on the role of Margot, a British arms dealer and the widow of a dangerous terrorist. Davis, who lives in Australia, pulled out of the role, citing problems with the time she would be required to spend on the series’ London set in light of recent family matters. Fox is extremely lucky that Fairley was available, given that Davis’s exit »

Game of Thrones' Michelle Fairley will take over for Judy Davis in 24: Live Another Day, according to The Hollywood Reporter. (Davis dropped out of the role earlier this month.) She'll play Margot, a British villain and the widow of a terrorist. Is she a terrorist, too? It's 24, where most people are secretly terrorists — but also many people are not who they seem to be! A classic 24 toss-up! Probably she is a terrorist, though, because otherwise she's just some lady Jack Bauer meets in his dangerous adventures. »
