After “Chuck,” the Australian actress will be playing a spy again

“Chuck” alum Yvonne Strahovski will be playing a spy again for Fox's upcoming event series, “24: Live Another Day.”

The Australian native will play Kate Morgan, who's described as a brilliant but impulsive CIA field operative in London.

Strahovski joins returning castmembers Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver and William Devane, as well as already announced newcomers Giles Matthey (“Jobs”), Gbenga Akinnagbe (“The Wire”), Michael Wincott (“The Crow”) and Judy Davis (“Life with Judy Garland”).
