Time right for Garofalo on "24"
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The political left and the political right will join forces on Fox's "24" this coming season. Janeane Garofalo, an outspoken liberal, is set to co-star on the conservative-leaning real-time drama, whose co-creator/executive producer Joel Surnow jokingly describes himself as a "right-wing nut job."
Garofalo will play a government agent who is part of the team investigating the crisis befalling Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and company in the upcoming season.
The casting will be good news for former President Clinton, who revealed earlier this year that he was a fan of the show "even though an uber right-wing guy writes it."
Garofalo is the second major cast addition to the action drama, which is going through a major revamping coming off a lackluster sixth season. Cherry Jones was tapped last month to play the new president.
My favorite part of this? The howler monkeys are FREAKING!!!!
24, the popular Fox miniseries, is now officially dead to the nutter right:
A woman President and environmental concerns were bad enough. Now they have Michael Moore in a dress on the show. Expect howls of outrage.
24: It's Over - Buy The DVD's
I’ve seen every episode of all 6 seasons of 24. But I’ll never watch another episode again:
Poor babies. Where will they find their torture porn now?
