Other theater credits include “Amy’s View,” with Dame Judi Dench; and “Picnic,” with Ashley Judd; as well as the Off-Broadway show, “Lobby Hero.”
In 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, the stakes are higher than ever for BAUER, who is now an exile being tracked by CIA operations head STEVE HARRIS (Benjamin Bratt, “Law & Order”), agent KATE MORGAN (Yvonne Strahovski, “Dexter”), computer tech JORDAN REED (Giles Matthey, “Jobs”) and field operative ERIK RITTER (Gbenga Akinnagbe, “The Wire”).
