24 Takes Left Turn with Garofalo
Los Angeles (E! Online) – Attention, clockwatchers: Janeane Garofalo will now be punching a 24 timecard.
The ¸ber-liberal actress has signed on for the seventh season of Fox’s conservative-leaning, clock-ticking drama, according to published reports.
Per the Hollywood Reporter, Garofalo will play a government agent investigating the latest crisis befalling Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) & Co.
Her presence on the set could make for an interesting back and forth with series co-creator and executive producer Joel Surnow, who has jokingly described himself as a “right-wing nut job.”
The comedian and activist is the second major addition to the 24 cast in recent weeks, following last month’s casting of Tony winner Cherry Jones as the series’ commander in chief.
Garofalo’s most recent small-screen stint was a recurring role as controversial campaign adviser Louise Thornton on the final season of NBC’s West Wing.
Up until July 2006, she served alongside Sam Seder as a cohost of The Majority Report on Air America Radio but resigned after her relationship with Seder grew strained.
The outspoken thesp will have some time to get used to the idea of her latest gig before stepping in front of the cameras.
Production on the upcoming season of 24 was recently delayed a second time to allow writers the chance to flesh out the story arc.
Shooting is now due to commence on Sept. 10.
