Kiefer Sutherland: “I have said from the beginning that the real star of 24 is the idea, and I mean that wholeheartedly…Whether we end up working together on it or not, I’ll be one of the first people who can’t wait to see it. I have every faith they’ll do something cool and clever.”
The Fox Network has ordered a pilot for a 24 reboot, but former 24 star Keifer Sutherland will not be a part of it. Instead, the new 24 pilot will have a more racially diverse cast. Eager to share its news, Fox posted the exciting prospect of the pilot of a 24 reboot on its Twitter page.
