Not sure if you were clamoring for this... but Jack Bauer is back! Kiefer Sutherland reprises his role as Counter Terrorist Unit agent Bauer in 24: Live Another Day—a 12 episode miniseries kicking off on May 5 on Fox. Bauer, who is waaaaay too old for this shit, is accused of being a terrorist and faces the same kind of torture he inflicted on so many of America's enemies in the first series. (Ironyyyyyyyyy!) But then? The President might be assassinated!! Again!! So Jack must escape his American tormentors, and team up with Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub in full Girl with the Dragon Tattoo mode) to clear his name, save the President, and suspend the audience's disbelief that he and Bruce Willis may be getting too old for this gig. WATCH.
