Corey Hawkins, who is best known for his portrayal of Dr. Dre in Straight Outta Compton, will play Eric Carter. Instead of following secret agent Jack Bauer (played by Kiefer Sutherland),the new show will focus on Eric, a tormented Army Ranger who is being hunted by terrorists.
According to the New York Times, Fox knows that bringing back 24 without Sutherland in the central role is risky. The original ran from 2001 to 2010. In 2014, they returned with a miniseries called Live Another Day. 24: Legacy is set to debut after the Super Bowl in early 2017!
Will this remake survive? Can Corey live up to Kiefer?
