British Nigerian actor Kae-Kazim came to prominence in his role as George Rutugunda in the Oscar nominated film “Hotel Rwanda,” and went on to star as Colonel Ike Dubaku in “24.” His movie credits include “X-Men,” and “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and on TV he has been in shows including “Criminal Minds,” and “Gotham.” On cable he is Mr. Scott in Starz’s pirate drama “Black Sails.”
As Zeus in “Troy: Fall Of A City” Kae Kazim will be in the bulk of the eight episodes. The series, in which the story is told from the perspective of the besieged Trojan

The format was unlike anything that had been done before: Each of the 24 episodes of the season would occur in “real time,” totaling up to a very, very long day for protagonist Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland).
But “24” co-creator Joel Surnow wasn’t sure the audience would bite. “Real time was an unproven concept,” Surnow wrote to Variety. “We had no idea if it would have the desired effect — which was to create a heightened sense of urgency. We couldn’t even gauge it when the picture was cut together. It wasn’t until the final mixing session — with all the music and effects in — that we saw what this show
24: Legacy will instead “revolve around a military hero’s return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.”
The hero is a twenty-something named Eric Carter, who is described in the pilot script as an African American, but according to Deadline
The veteran actor will be bringing to weaselly life Gregory, who, according to Robert Kirkman’s comic-book source material, is the leader of the Hilltop Colony, a coward to the core and a total nightmare for Maggie and Rick. Just how awful is the villain?
The show will return in the summer of 2014 as an event series called "24: Live Another Day." Kiefer Sutherland has signed on to play Jack Bauer again, with the story picking up several years after the last season, which aired in 2009. There's no word yet on any other casting.
"Live Another Day" will run for 12 weeks and keep its real-time format, but Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly says it may skip hours here and there.
"As [executive producer Howard Gordon] would design the season, the spine of the 24 episodes was really about 12 hours. Those were where the big events occurred, and then there were little twists and connective tissue in between," Reilly told reporters on a conference call Monday (May 13). Each episode of "Live Another Day" will still unfold over the course of an hour, but
You already figured this out, but now we can say with certainty: Touch isn’t coming back for a third season. The mystical drama was shifted to Friday nights this season where it struggled in the ratings. Even without a 24 revival, it was considered pretty much dead in the water.
For 24 miniseries/limited series, we’re hearing Fox is actually currently looking at a 13-episode order for the show. For a cable series, that’s actually a full season (heck,
Last month, Kiefer Sutherland told the women of The View that the movie will come out in 2012.

Because of Sutherland’s duties on Broadway, where he currently stars in a revival of Jason Miller’s That Championship Season, Touch will start production in late May-early June after he fulfills his commitment to the play.
Kring wrote the project, his first pilot script since Heroes. Charles McDougall, who has helmed the pilots for Desperate Housewives,
However, star Kiefer Sutherland is optimistic that the challenge of finding the right script will be met and conquered. And soon.
“It’s a very difficult thing to take something that you’ve done for eight years and almost 200 episodes, and try and find a story that’s going to be unique and yet also service the history of the show,” Sutherland tells Extra. “That’s to be expected.”
Regardless of script issues, Sutherland expects the film to go
