Momentum appears to be on John Boyega's side currently, with a film he stars in, picking up an award at the just-ended 2014 Sundance Film Festival (Malik Vitthal’s drama Imperial Dreams), and being cast to play Jesse Owens in a biopic titled Race, from Forecast Pictures and ID+. Today brings word that the actor will join the cast of Fox’s 24: Live Another Day, the next chapter in the hit franchise, which returns to a TV screen near you on May 5th, picking up the story 4 years after the series finale, which saw Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) as a fugitive, in London (where Boyega calls home).

In the meantime, shooting on the Jesse Owens project he'll star in, is set to begin in May in Berlin and Montreal, »
