Jack Bauer? He's all that in the eyes of a new CTU agent to be played by Freddie Prinze Jr., the latest actor to sign on for 24's eighth season.
A star of such films as She's All That and two Scooby-Doos — where he played opposite lady love Sarah Michelle Gellar — and the short-lived sitcom Freddie, Prinze Jr. joins 24 as Davis Cole, a Marine who now heads up the resurrected CTU's Field Ops division. In that role, Cole fancies himself the new Jack Bauer, says the Hollywood Reporter.
I don't know about this choice, Freddie as Jack I don't see him as an agent capable of torturing and or killing potential terrorists, friends, witnesses etc. The 8th season of 24 may be the last season if Jack Bauer is killed off.
