Matt... you are a very sick mind for starting this so soon.... but... since you ask, here's a few questions of my own...

Well, the finale of Season 7 leaves us with:

- Kim undergoing the marrow transplant to save Jack. We know Jack lives, but does Kim survive or is she in a coma?
- President Taylor was asking Ethan to take the lead in the transfer of Alan from FBI, but what does Renee end up doing to Alan before the transfer takes place?
- What happens to Taylor's marriage? Her daughter?
- What happens to Tony? Alan? The rest of the "mystery group"?
- How does this all tie in to the Middle Eastern President?

Well, Cuthbert is confirmed for season 8, so its unlikely she dies or is in a coma.


- President Taylor was asking Ethan to take the lead in the transfer of Alan from FBI, but what does Renee end up doing to Alan before the transfer takes place?

I personally think that would've been the better ending scene than what we got as this season was very much more Renee's story than Jack's and it fit better thematically as an ending and I really look forward to finding out what she did.


- What happens to Taylor's marriage? Her daughter?

Time will tell. Taylor seems convinced that they are both gone.


- What happens to Tony? Alan? The rest of the "mystery group"?

Tony and Alan are in custody. As for the rest, time will tell.


- How does this all tie in to the Middle Eastern President?

That is the million dollar question. Here is an out of left field guess. Perhaps Jack works for him. If he is a Middle Eastern president odds are he is Muslim. Jack seems to have been converted or at least took comfort in Muslim teachings. Perhaps Bug knew the President and got him the job. Jack has served as an advisor to the Secretary of Defense, its not impossible that Jack could work for this man as an advisor or a guard.

I have a feeling that, it's going to be one of those scenarios in which, Jack Bauer wakes up from his coma, finding that several months have passed. I imagine that Kim will have survived, but, the stem cell transplants have made her paralyzed or some such. Anyways, I'm sure it allows for Jack to meet his son-in-law and his granddaughter (and how much you want to bet her name is Teri?).

I also have this feeling that President Taylor and Kanin will end up having an affair, given the estrangement that now exists between her and the First Gentlemen. Maybe they could even be in the middle of divorce proceedings by the time season 8 starts.

Also, there's a possibility that Renee is transferred to the New York FBI office, having been demoted and reprimanded because of her actions in using "enhanced interrogation techniques" on Wilson. Of course, that's where the next big terrorist attack will be and, I imagine, learning that Jack Bauer is still alive, she requests he be brought in as a consultant.

One twist for these terrorist attacks could be is that not only is doing this in an effort to have Tony Almeda freed--maybe the guys sponsored by this fictional Middle Eastern country--but also that these guys are targeting the members of the conspiracy, meaning that Bauer and the Feds have to deal with two terrorist groups essentially at war with each other, with America in the crossfire.

I'm thinking that Renee won't actually kill Wilson, but will torture him because, let's face it, he deserves it. Then he'll escape to be the main villain, I hope because, as I said in the other thread; Will Patton is win.

If it takes place in New York, it's logical that Renee and Jack are both working for a new CTU office located there.

Also, I'm not sure Chief of Staff Shawshank hasn't already hit that. If not, he will.

In the 24 universe prison doesn't really mean a whole lot. Nina, Henderson, Salazar, Marwan, hell, even Tony has been in prison under heavy guard at some point. Even with him in prison I think it's pretty obvious Tony will have a pretty important role next season. If he wasn't going to they would have killed him off. Keeping him alive leaves the door wide open for him to return next season.

I'm very well aware of what prison means to 24, I just don't know where Tony can go from here. He used (shady female partner, can't remember name) to get to Wilson. Killed (shady female partner) in front of Wilson. Beat the crap out of Wilson, got taken away before he could kill Wilson.

Tony has no idea who all is involved in the conspiracy because Wilson remained strictly anonymous. Tony could care less about anyone but this guy.

So where does his story go?

There is still the rest of the bluetooth gang. Something tells me this guy isn't the only one responsible for what happened in season 5. I just really don't think this is the end of Tony. Like I said, in the 24 universe they'd sooner kill off a character then just drop their storyline if there is nowhere else to go with the character. Tony is arguably the second most important person in the series history, they would have killed him off if they didn't intend to use him next season.

I posted this in the other thread which are my thoughts in regards to Tony

I do not think Jack cheated Tony out of revenge. If anything he was saving Tony. Sure Jack did & covered up & got away with alot of stuff but look at where that got him. His wife died & his relationship with his daughter went to the ****ters & Jack is to this day full of guilt & regret. Not even his own country trusted him up until now now that they understand the Jack Bauer way. If Tony became a revenge driven man he would have made Jack seem like the ultimate good guy. Like say if Michelle died after Tony's son was born & lived Tony & his son's relationship would be Jack & Kim 2.0. In the end Jack did Tony a favor & hopefully one day Tony can forgive Jack & hopefully Jack does not give up on Tony so easily. They have to much of a history for Jack to say **** you Tony. Hopefully Jack can make some kind of deal with President Taylor & he can somehow help Tony move on from this

24' exclusive: Hail to the (new) chief!

According to my watch, it's time for the second piece of casting on 24's eighth season!

Chris Diamantopoulos -- best known as Debra Messing's gay BFF on The Starter Wife -- has been tapped to play the series regular role of Rob Weiss, the argumentative and tough new Chief of Staff to President Allison Taylor (Cherry Jones). He replaces Taylor's current C.O.S., Ethan Kanin, who snatched his job back in last Monday's finale after the prez's psycho daughter, Olivia, was taken into federal custody.

As I previously reported, Day 8's action will switch from Washington D.C. to New York City and center on an assassination plot against a visiting foreign leader (Slumdog Millionaire's Anil Kapoor, the new season's first piece of casting).

Bonus piece of trivia free of charge: Diamantopoulos is married to Ugly Betty's sublime Becki Newton. On second thought, that little nugget is worth at least $50. Pay up.

Six weeks is enough time to have the first gentlemen threaten her with exposing her pre-Presidency affair with Kanin and get his daughter back out of jail. It's also enough time for her and Kanin to hit it and have it get exposed, etc.

January seems so far away.

I hope Jack, at some point in the next season, returns to full form as far as physical fitness goes. Don't get me wrong, I liked that Jack had to deal with the illness this season, and don't want him to get better miraculously for next season, but substituting Jack's ability in the field to aid the drama aspect of the show, in some ways, diminished it. I think the end of the season was perfectly fitting, in terms of how Jack's functionality degraded, but I just hope he's back to kicking ass by at least 1/2 way through next season, because the usual Bauer bad-assery was lacking for the final 1/3 of season 7.

05-21-2009, 06:11 PM
So the foreign leader is going to be played by Slumdog's Anil Kapoor. That makes three people who are in the movie trying to make a splash in America.

Bob Gunton, who plays Ethan played FDR in a PBS Documentary on Joseph Stalin and his involvement in World War II. That one aired last night and had been running the last several weeks. He did a great job playing FDR and had his mannerisms down to perfection.

ChrisBaleBatman
05-22-2009, 09:27 AM
I'd like to see what's going to happen on Day 8, now.

Atleast action wise, since when Jack got exposed...the anti-hero carrying most if not all the action was Tony. And it worked, I think, mostly because he's a badass.

With Tony in prison...I'd imagine for as long as Jack might be in bad shape, Tony won't be able to carry the action. I suppose Renee might be able to carry some of the weight for a while, perhaps.

Writing wise...pacing wise, creatively...I'm eager to see where they go with it.

05-25-2009, 02:57 PM
So, lets talk villains. Each season usually has a high profile actor play the villain (the exception being season 3).

Season 1 had Dennis Hopper, season 2 Tobin Bell, season 4 Arnold Vosloo, season 5 Peter Weller and Paul McCrane, season 6 had James Cromwell, and season 7 had perhaps the biggest actor to ever grace the show, Jon Voight. Who would you like to see next year? I'd like to see something a bit smaller. Maybe move away from the big conspiracy and focus on just a terrorist network. No more graybeards in suits sitting behind desks orchestrating mass conspiracies.

I think Oded Fehr would make a great antagonist for the show and would lead to a great physical show down with Jack. Michael Clarke Duncan has also expressed interest in being on the show. That could be interesting.

Keep Oded Fehr on the good side, he was in an episode of Burn Notice(or some USA show) As an antagonist and I just didn't like it much.

Wow, so much Oded Fehr love. I'd love to see him stretch his legs and play a truly sadistic villain. Never-the-less, we have the president of a middle eastern country in play next season. Maybe they should cast Fehr as his body guard or something. That way he could work with Jack, not against him. I do love the idea of Biehn as a villain.

Still, this could very well be the end of 24. Maybe we should be thinking bigger. Its too bad he is going to be so busy with Potter, because imagine a season of 24 with Alan Rickman as the villain. Plus, it seems like a role Rickman, who has never been snobbish would take.

A 24 Sneak Peek!
By William Keck May 13, 2009 02:48 PM EST

A week after Kiefer Sutherland landed in hot water for head-butting a fashion designer in New York City on May 5, the star turned up in L.A. to help promote 24’s seventh season DVD release and Sunday’s two-hour season finale. Reporters were asked not to ask the star about his arrest, allowing Sutherland to focus instead on his character, Jack Bauer.

Here’s what we know about the show’s eighth, and perhaps final season. A year-and-a-half to two years will have elapsed since the end of Season 7, with the action moving from the White House to the U.N. building in New York City. Cherry Jones is back as President Allison Taylor. “I don’t think they know quite what to do with me yet,” says Jones. “At first I heard they needed me for only a couple episodes, but I do seem now to have a little bit more to do.” Cherry says the new season will expand beyond an American threat to a global concern. “It has to deal more with the state of the world—not just the state of us,” she says.

"Slumdog Millionaire" star Anil Kapoor plays the head of a foreign country, which enters into a peace agreement with President Taylor, but assassins plan to bring Kapoor’s character down before the treaty can be signed. “It’s a call back to the very first season when the very charismatic president David Palmer has to be saved for the greater good,” teases executive producer Howard Gordon, who plans to shoot 7 to 10 days on the streets of New York City and construct U.N. sets in L.A. “The eighth day is the culmination of all Jack has had to do—good bad and otherwise. When he’s finally enlisted to help protect the peace, he’s preserving something that is very personal to him.”

Producers are undecided at this time if the president’s estranged husband and daughter will return. “Both family members are waiting to hear how they might be employed,” says Jones. But one person who will be back is Renee Walker. Annie Wershing says something from Renee’s past comes back to haunt her and directly involves her in the U.N. crisis.

President Taylor has reconstituted CTU, but the organization is now more budget-conscious. “There is a new head of CTU named Brian Hastings, who is extremely smart and very possessive,” says Gordon of the yet-to-be-cast role. “He’s a little blinded by his possessiveness.” This will lead to conflicts with both Jack and Chloe, who will find herself in danger of losing her job. “That’s going to be trouble for me,” says Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe). “She had a special place for Bill Buchanan, so I see some bashing heads with authority.”

Since head-bashing wasn’t a topic I could broach with Sutherland, I spoke to him instead about the possibility of a romance developing between Jack and Renee. Though Gordon confirms that the two characters will not have hooked up at the onset of Season 8, New York at night can be a very romantic setting, eh, Kiefer? “It can be,” says Kiefer, with a knowing chuckle. “It can be romantic...and it can be dangerous, but it’s always exciting.”

Westfeldt and Boyd Join Fox's 24 (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=55820)
Source: The Hollywood Reporter
May 27, 2009

The Hollywood Reporter says that Jennifer Westfeldt and John Boyd have joined the cast of Fox's "24."

On the upcoming eighth season, to be set in New York, Kissing Jessica Stein star Westfeldt will play the recurring role of Meredith Reed, an ambitious journalist with ties to Arman Hashemi (Anil Kapoor), a Middle East leader who comes to the U.S. on a peacemaking mission.

Boyd (The Notorious Bettie Page) will be a regular on the 20th TV/Imagine series, playing CTU systems analyst Jonah Schwartz.

Westfeldt and Boyd join previously-cast Kapoor and Chris Diamantopoulos as the "24" producers are filling nine major new roles for Season 8, slated to begin production today.

Suddenly, I find myself counting the minutes until 24's new season. Perhaps this is why: Katee Sackhoff is joining the cast!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that the Battlestar Galactica heroine has been tapped to play the series regular role of Dana Walsh, a highly respected and down-to-earth data analyst at the new and improved New York branch of CTU.

Translation: Chloe-Starbuck catfight alert!

This fraktastic casting coup hit a road block last week when Sackhoff abruptly took herself out of the running, prompting me to post this blind item. But late Friday, word surfaced that the BSG badass was once again in the mix.

more scoop on Sackhoff's character...

She's in a relationship with fellow agent Davis Cole (played by the just-cast Freddie Prinze. Jr.), and she apparently has a skeleton in her closet she's trying desperately to keep hidden.

As I previously reported, 24's eighth season -- which premieres Jan. 17, 2010 -- will be set in the Big Apple and center on an assassination plot against a visiting foreign leader (Slumdog Millionaire's Anil Kapoor). In addition to Sackhoff, Prinze, and Williamson, new Day 8 blood includes Kissing Jessica Stein's Jennifer Westfeldt (as a journalist with ties to Kapoor's diplomat) and The Starter Wife's Chris Diamantopoulos (as President Taylor's Chief of Staff).

Well, exactly, it would be nice if they put that thought into it, but what would be the point? The average viewer of the show doesn't remember Richard Walsh. Hell, the average writer of the show probably doesn't remember Richard Walsh. It would be such a ridiculous contrivance for Jack to find out that she's his daughter (or something) all to get a tiny reveal that nobody cared about. It's just a coincidence.

Not 24 news but some may be interested in a former castmember becoming a star of a new show.

AMC is following up “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad” with a 12-hour “Three Days of the Condor”-ish conspiracy thriller starring “24” vet James Badge Dale as a think-tank analyst in hot water.

Look! Press release!

AMC GREENLIGHTS CONSPIRACY THRILLER ‘RUBICON’

From Writer and Executive Producer Jason Horwitch

Series Stars James Badge Dale (The Departed), Lili Taylor (Six Feet Under), and Miranda Richardson (The Crying Game)

Warner Horizon Television to Produce Network’s New Original Drama

NEW YORK, NY, June 24, 2009 – AMC announced today it has greenlit the dramatic series Rubicon. From writer and executive producer Jason Horwitch (Pentagon Papers, Medical Investigation), Rubicon is a conspiracy thriller that follows an analyst at a New York City think-tank whose work leads him to uncover a hidden clue that points to an unfolding global conspiracy. The one-hour, 12-episode weekly series will be produced by Warner Horizon Television. Rubicon marks the third series order from AMC. The first two series that the network developed were Mad Men and Breaking Bad.

“This script is an iconic project for us in that it underscores AMC’s brand promise of ‘Story Matters Here,’ combining great storytelling with a world that hasn't been explored on television before. Think tanks are inherently mysterious places with murky agendas, and it’s a great setting for a show like this. Jason's understanding of the conspiracy thriller genre is evident in a plot reminiscent of some great films like Three Days of the Condor and The Parallax View. We're thrilled to have a world class cast, director, and production team to bring this series to life,” said Joel Stillerman, SVP of original programming, production and digital content for AMC.

Rubicon revolves around a secret society that pulls the strings on the world political stage. The series focuses on an analyst at a national think tank who discovers that his employers are not who they seem to be. The show’s cast includes James Badge Dale (The Departed), Lili Taylor (Six Feet Under, High Fidelity), Dallas Roberts (Walk the Line, Flicka, The L Word), Jessica Collins (The Nine, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Christopher Evan Welch (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Lauren Hodges (Law & Order), Paul Butler (The Insider, Reign Over Me) with Arliss Howard (Full Metal Jacket, Natural Born Killers, The Sandlot) and Oscar®-nominated actress Miranda Richardson (The Crying Game, Sleepy Hollow).

AMC’s Joel Stillerman, SVP of Original Programming, Production and Digital Content; Vlad Wolynetz, Vice President of Production, Series and Movies; and Jeremy Elice, Vice President of Original Programming, will oversee the development and production of the new drama.

Rubicon’s pilot was produced in New York City and was directed by acclaimed film and television helmer Allen Coulter (The Sopranos, Hollywoodland, Damages and Nurse Jackie). Kerry Orent (Michael Clayton, Rescue Me) is the producer, and the casting director is Avy Kaufman (The Sixth Sense, King Kong, Garden State).

In July of 2006, AMC entered into the original programming arena with Broken Trail starring Robert Duvall and Thomas Haden Church, which garnered record ratings for AMC and scored four Emmy wins. In the summer of 2007, AMC debuted its first original drama Mad Men. The series has received overwhelming recognition from the industry including making history by becoming the first cable network to garner back to back Golden Globe® wins for Best Dramatic Television Series and receiving multiple Emmy wins including making history again by becoming the first cable network to win for Outstanding Drama series. Then in January of 2008, AMC premiered its newest original series, Breaking Bad, which took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actor for Bryan Cranston’s portrayal of lead character Walt White. The network features an extensive library of iconic, top-rated movies, acclaimed unscripted originals and specials, including AMC StoryMakers with Peter Bart and Peter Guber, and curated movie franchises including Hollywood Icon, AMC Complete Collection and AMC Celebrates.

Beyond that, ABC's Inside the Box (http://www.tvguide.com/News/Pilot-Raver-Milano-1003548.aspx) pilot is undergoing retooling/technically still in play, so Raver might not exactly be available. But one Kim you can plan on returning is Jack's daughter — sources tell me Elisha Cuthbert (http://www.tvguide.com/celebrities/elisha-cuthbert/148935) has already filmed scenes for Day 8's first few hours.

Completed Season 2 of 24 today and man it was amazing. What a great ride of intensity.

The ending has me very interested in Season 3. I've always been into thrillers that involve biological/viral weapons. Going to rent Season 3 later on today and start on it after work.

When Tobin Bell's character was about to kill Jack I was expecting him to say "Hello Mr. Bauer. I want to play a game." :woot:

The development of Tony and Michelle was good stuff too. Tony is another one of my favorite characters. He's very firm, strict, and intense but he has a good heart and wants to do things the right way. His interaction with Michelle was very nice as she reminded me of naive, somewhat weak, and yet also wants to do the right thing as well.

Jack sniping out Kingsley's men was pure epic. So was the hand to hand combat as well.

The ending to season 2 was one of the biggest wastes to me, since it never really played a prominent part in the series. In fact, it barely gets a passing mention the following season. If you want any actual impact from that particular cliffhanger (which was one of the best), you have to play the damn video game.

From your perspective she is more interested in the idea that David represents and was more into the fortune, the fame, and the power that it would bring her.

Man, Season 3 is just as intense as Season 1 and 2. I think what makes it more intense is the fact that a biological viral weapon is a realistic scenario and it creates a picture of panic, chaos, and death.

One thing I noticed about 24 is that while there are good and bad guys, even the good guys while likable tend to be unlikable as well. Tony's character interests me a lot too. He is pretty badass too after taking a bullet to the neck and coming back to his job.

I was thinking about it and I added in the fact that he had to kill Ryan too. His heroin addiction, killing Ryan, cutting off Chases arm, and Claudia dying just made it another one of those horrible long days of his life.

You know, even thought 24 is a fictional show, it can teach us a lot about Jack's life and our life. We tend to complain about how horrible our day is going but you can look at Jack's and say "Well, it could always be worse."

I'll try to clarify. Do not read this LastSunrise.

The finale itself was great, the problem with the second half of the season was the sheer level of stuff. It bounces from nuclear reactors to stealth fighters to Air Force One to the Football to Mandy so fast that it's just too much. It's why the season is far and away the most implausible (according to that military guy who analyzed all the seasons for how likely they were to happen. No, I have no idea who that was anymore). Not to mention Marwan escaping over and over and over.

Every other season breaks the threat in half, so you're dealing with really two different villains over the course of the day. Season four just never really does that. So, despite the fantastic beginning and the finale, overall it's the second weakest season.

All of this is just my opinion of course.

I also must say that Habib Marwan is one slitherly snake and just when you think CTU has him he manages to escape. It's a shame Arnold Vosloo isn't in more films because he's a very fine actor who pulls off a cold, detached, and intelligent villain perfectly.

Season 4 is just intense and I haven't seen any situations where it's bogged down by anything.

Jack forcing the medical team to work on Lee Jong was one of those situations where it was a lose lose. It was badass and heartbroken at the same time, but it needed to be done for the lives of those at stake. Kiefer really captured Jack's guilt and anguish when Paul died. You could feel Jack's pain when Audrey said she hated him, slapped him, and so forth.

But as to be expected Jack had a job to do and had to be more concerned about Lee Jong than Paul or Audrey.
