Jack Bauer is about to get interrogated. Hard.
In Monday’s “24: Live Another Day” event series premiere, the franchise’s hero has surfaced in London at the same time that the American president is in town. That coincidence, along with Bauer’s (Kiefer Sutherland) murky past, has White House Chief-of-Staff Mark Boudreau’s (Tate Donovan) Spidey Sense tingling.
The U.S. government is not taking any chances in the Fox opener, just prisoners, they hope.
“We have to consider the possibility that he is here to do the president harm,” Boudreau says in the clip, imploring Benjamin Bratt to pass his interrogation over to the seemingly more ruthless “Special Activities” agents.
Those folks sound like they don’t just want to talk to Bauer, who is probably going to want to avoid that interview at all costs.
The 12-episode run kicks off tonight at 8 p.m. on Fox. Watch the clip:
