‘Nikita’ Star Tiffany Hines Cast in Fox’s ’24: Legacy’ (Exclusive)

Next chapter of the spy thriller will also feature “Straight Outta Compton” star Corey Hawkins

Tiffany Hines will be joining the cast of Fox’s “24: Legacy,” in a major recurring guest star role, TheWrap has learned exclusively.

Hines, who is best known for playing the role of Jaden in “Nikita, will be starring alongside Corey Hawkins who played Dr. Dre in “Straight Outta Compton.”

“24: Legacy” is a spinoff of the series “24” and although the series will follow a structure similar to the original counter-terrorism thriller starring Kiefer Sutherland, the updated version will feature an all-new cast. “Legacy” revolves around a military hero’s (Hopkins) return to the U.S. and the chaos that follows him, forcing him to ask the Counter Terrorist Unit for assistance in stopping a large-scale terrorist attack in the Unites States.

Hines will be playing Aisha, the smart, tough and ambitious girlfriend of a drug dealer, Isaac (Ashley Thomas) and plays an integral part in his business.

Ashley Thomas (“The Night Of”), Miranda Otto (“The Lord of the Rings”), Teddy Sears (“American Horror Story”), Anna Diop (“Greenleaf”), and Jimmy Smits (“Sons of Anarchy”) are also cast in the series.

Hines most recently played the role of Toni Braxton’s sister, Tamar Braxton, in Lifetime Television’s “Un-­Break My Hear.”

“24” alums Manny Coto and Evan Katz will executive produce alongside Teakwood Lane’s Howard Gordon and Imagine TV’s Brian Grazer with 20th Fox Television.

“24: Legacy” will premiere on Feb. 5 following Super Bowl LI.
