'24' First Look : Freddie Prinze, Jr. as Jack's Wingman

13 November 2009 5:34 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

EW.com delivered the goods today, providing a first look at Freddie Prinze, Jr. as the head of CTU New York's field operations team in the 8th Season of 24. The former teen heartthrob plays Cole Ortiz, head of field operations for a reconstituted CTU in New York City, where the action takes place in the upcoming season. “We’ve attempted to call him a young Jack Bauer, but he really is his own character,” says 24 executive producer Howard Gordon. Much of Prinze’s storyline concerns his character’s romantic relationship with Dana Walsh, an agent at CTU played Katee Sackhoff. (Sci-fi nerds, try to contain yourself!) “We’ve got a really interesting story to tell with these two,” adds Gordon. “What we learn in short order is that she may not be who she says she is, and it has to do with her past, which comes back to haunt her in the present. »

5 November 2009 10:45 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Roland Emmerich's new disaster film won't hit theaters until next weekend, it seems that a TV version is already in play. According to Entertainment Weekly, director Roland Emmerich is working on a TV series based off his film 2012 is already being planned. Here's what Emmerich told the site at the 2012 premiere last night in Los Angeles.

"The plan is that it is 2013 and it's about what happens after the disaster," Emmerich told EW while walking the red carpet for the 2012 premiere Tuesday. "It is about the resettling of Earth. That is very, very fascinating. (2012 writer/producer) Harold Kloser and I came up with the idea and we have the luxury of having a producer on the film who is a big TV producer, Mark Gordon. We said to Mark, 'Why don't you do a TV show that picks up where the movie leaves off and call it 2013?' »

Get Ready: End Of The World Coming To Television

5 November 2009 2:25 AM, PST | GeekNation.com | See recent GeekNation news »

Just in case watching the USS John F. Kennedy demolish the White House in trailers for "2012" wasn't enough, director Roland Emmerich says he wants to continue bringing you the story about the aftermath of his film ... on a weekly basis. Emmerich told Entertainment Weekly that he is pitching a television version of his story to networks, saying there is "plenty to do in a TV show." Such a production would focus on life in 2013 and include the likes of Howard Gordon, an executive producer for Emmerich's film who has also worked on shows such as "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice." "It is about the resettling of Earth. That is very, very fascinating," Emmerich said, adding that "2012" writer and producer Harold Kloser also would be aboard.

Roland Emmerich Has His Plans Made For 2013

4 November 2009 6:18 PM, PST | SciFiCool.com | See recent SciFiCool.com news »

Roland Emmerich has an early Xmas present ready for all you fans of fine, tasteful and hysterical disaster movies. “2012″ will enrich all our Sci-Fi Holiday preparations with absolutely photo realistic footage of mother Earth undergoing an extreme makeover. In the crumbly aftermath, who will remain? What will their lives be like? According to Entertainment Weekly, Roland is planning a sequel to “2012″ but this time as a series, called, in fine sequential style, “2013″. Emmerich and Howard Gordon (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice) are in talks to do a show that will follow the Earthbound survivors of the really big disaster. The Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice connection really scares me but the concept is pretty awesome. A post apocalyptic drama. Nice. »

Roland Emmerich Developing 2012 Sequel 2013 As Television Series

4 November 2009 3:49 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Roland Emmerich's next disaster film 2012 won't hit theaters for a couple weeks (November 13th), but a sequel has already been planned... but not the normal kind of sequel. Entertainment Weekly has learned that Emmerich and executive producer Howard Gordon (Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice) are also developing a television drama titled 2013, which would be about what happens after the disaster. Gordon has already entered talks with ABC to develop the series, and if it does happen, don't expect a lot of action to take place on the small screen, as this would be a drama set in a post apocalyptic setting. Spoiler warning: Apparently some people on earth survive the epic disaster of 2012, and the series would be about "a group of people who survived .... on a piece of land that was spared or one that became an island in the process of the crust moving.

2 November 2009 4:30 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

--Sylvester Stallone has opened up on the secret scene in "The Expendables" featuring himself, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and my greatest dreams come to life. According to the actor, Willis plays the man who hires Stallone and his titular team for "a death-defying mission," but there's another operative that could take on the job — none other than Stallone's longtime rival, played by Schwarzenegger. "I talked about this scene with these guys for a long time, but I never thought it would come to fruition," said Stallone. (PopWatch)

--NBC is going from "Heroes" to "Zeroes" in an all-new television project from "Crank" duo Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Titled "Zeroes," the one-hour NBC project will focus on a crisis situation's final hour. "We want to drop right into it and sustain the absolute most berserk state of crisis, when all of the options have been exhausted," said Taylor. (THR)

President Logan: Returning to 24!

2 November 2009 5:23 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

If Tony Almeida can return, anything is possible...

A Fox press release has confirmed that Gregory Itzin will be reprising the role of villainous President Charles Logan on season eight of 24.

Late in the season, current commander-in-chief Alison Taylor (Cherry Jones) will reluctantly enlist her disgraced predecessor to help with a growing diplomatic crisis.

Logan played a major role in a terrorist scheme during season five of the drama. He was last seen getting stabbed by his mentally unstable ex-wife, Martha, on season six.

24 exec producer Howard Gordon told Entertainment Weekly the opportunity to watch Jones and Itzin go head-to-head “was simply too compelling to pass up.”

As for Tony, he's safely in custody, following the events of last year. At least we assume that's the case - but we'll be tuned in to the 24 season premiere on January 17 just to be sure. (And because Jack Bauer is our hero. »

Gregory Itzin Returns to 24

2 November 2009 4:25 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The anticipation for Season Eight of 24 continues to surge with Gregory Itzin reprising his acclaimed role as Charles Logan. The Emmy Award-winning drama starring Kiefer Sutherland returns for its next astonishing day with a two-night, four-hour premiere event Sunday, Jan. 17 (9:00-11:00 Pm Et/Pt) and Monday, Jan. 18 (8:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) on Fox.

The disgraced former President Logan was last seen after being shockingly stabbed by First Lady Martha Logan (Jean Smart) in Season Six. Itzin's return to 24 will bring together the series' two Emmy-nominated "presidents" for the first time when sitting President Allison Taylor (Emmy Award winner Cherry Jones) reluctantly enlists Logan to assist with an escalating international diplomatic crisis.

When asked about this on-screen pairing, 24 executive producer Howard Gordon said, "The opportunity for these two remarkable actors to share the stage was simply too compelling to pass up."

It's official: 24's upcoming eighth season is going to be craaaazy (the bat-you-know-what kind). Gregory Itzin is returning to 24 as lunatic ex-prez Charles Logan for a multi-episode arc. Logan will resurface towards the end of Day 8 when Cherry Jones' President Taylor reluctantly enlists her disgraced predecessor to assist with an escalating diplomatic crisis. 24 exec producer Howard Gordon says the opportunity to watch Jones and Itzin go head-to-head "was simply too compelling to pass up." Logan was last seen in season 6 after being stabbed to near-death by his equally mental former wife Martha. At the time, 24's then-executive producer Jon Cassar »

Gregory Itzin returning to Fox's '24'

1 November 2009 2:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

One of "24's" favorite villains, former President Charles Logan, is coming back.

Gregory Itzin, nominated for an Emmy for his role on the Fox real-time drama, has signed for a multiepisode arc on the upcoming eighth season.

The disgraced former president last was seen during Season 6 flatlining en route to a hospital after being stabbed by his wife, Martha Logan (Jean Smart).

At the opening of Season 7, FBI agent Renee Walker (Annie Wersching) told Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) that Logan is alive and under house arrest, but he never was heard from again.

In the upcoming season, sitting President Taylor (Cherry Jones) reluctantly enlists Logan to assist with an escalating international diplomatic crisis.

"The opportunity for these two remarkable actors to share the stage was simply too compelling to pass up," "24" executive producer/showrunner Howard Gordon said.

The eighth season of "24" kicks off with a two-night, four-hour premiere Jan. 17-18. Set in New York, »

War and Peace: Kiefer Sutherland, Mary-Lynn Rajskub, David Fury, Freddie Prinze Jr., Anil Kapoor Talk Day Eight in "24" Press Room

28 July 2009 9:57 AM, PDT | Televisionary | See recent Televisionary news »

In the press room after the 24 panel at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, David Fury tried to explain comments that fellow executive producer Howard Gordon made on the panel about the lack of female writers on the Fox series. Gordon had likened the dearth of women behind the scenes on 24 to the fact that the Rolling Stones didn't have any female members either. "They call me the woman on staff because I've written female roles for several other shows," Fury told members of the press. "Do I miss having women on staff? I do. The women who have come on have not quite captured the show, I don't know why. There is a mentality that it's a men's show. I don't think it's a problem for the show not having female writers, the show has been through many different writers, very successful very good writers who have succeeded on other »

Comic-Con 2009: ‘24′ Panel

25 July 2009 11:36 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The 24 panel at San Diego Comic-Con had Keifer Sutherland, Howard Gordon, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Katee Sackhoff, Freddie Prinze Jr., Anil Kapoor, Brannon Braga, David Fury, Manny Coto, Evan Katz & Sean Gallery in attendance today.

As you can see it was a large contingent and a great mix of production crew and actors.

Of course Keifer was the man.  When he came out the hall erupted, but Katee Sackhoff drew a close 2nd in the volume of applause.  It was great to see, not to mention Katee looking just spectacular.

There are Small Spoilers within, but I don’t think they’re show killers at all.

 

Here are some of the items touched on in the panel session for 24:

Keifer: They’re going to make Jack’s life worth living, hence the introduction of Renee and Jack’s daughter last season.  In other words we’re going to see Jack »

Comic-Con: 24 Season 8 Q&A

25 July 2009 11:23 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I don't think I'll ever be able to think of Katee Sackhoff as anyone but Starbuck, so it was very strange seeing her as a data analyst in 24. She was joined by exec. producer Howard Gordon, Kiefer Sutherland, Anil Kapoor, Freddie Prinz Jr., and Mary Lynn Rajskub for the 24 panel yesterday, where they spent quite a bit of time talking up the story elements of the upcoming eighth season. They screened a short clip of new footage, but it didn't really show much. We see Jack living in New York, where he gets an unpleasant visit from an underworld contact. Jack learns that someone is planning to assassinate a foreign president at the U.N. (shockingly, within 24 hours). We then cut to the shiny new NY CTU location, which looks something between an Asian fusion restaurant and an Apple store. They've certainly come a long way from the cold »

The Promise of Peace (And Some Explosions): "24" Panel at Comic-Con 2009

25 July 2009 8:30 AM, PDT | Televisionary | See recent Televisionary news »

The big news coming out of the 24 panel at Comic-Con 2009: CTU is back in a major way, Jack is happy, and Katee Sackhoff slides into the action-adventure series like a glove. Just don't expect her character, Dana Walsh, to be anything like Starbuck. Three of the series' newest cast members--Sackhoff, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Anil Kapoor--were on hand along with what seemed like a zillion writer/producer types on the series and Kiefer Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub, of course. Last season was about "getting Jack to a place where living mattered," said executive producer Howard Gordon. "Day Seven and Day Eight are probably, more than others, really connected together." So where do we start on Day Eight? Manny Coto joked that Day Eight takes place "30 years later." But really it starts with "Jack happy" with his daughter and granddaughter. But don't expect Jack to get all mushy. »
