24: Season 5
Sean Astin Joins Fox's 24
August 26, 2005
"The Lord of the Rings" trilogy star Sean Astin is joining the cast of Fox's 24, reports Variety.
He'll be a series regular when the 20th/Imagine TV-produced drama returns for its fifth season early next year. He'll be a part of the series' Counter Terrorist Unit; beyond that, the network is staying mum about Astin's character.
24 will relaunch with a two-night, four-hour event in January, with Jean Smart, Connie Britton and Brady Corbett all aboard as new cast members. The season debut is locked for Sunday, Jan. 8, at 8 p.m., with the second two hours airing on Jan. 9.
