24 Season 8 Spoilers & Casting Scoop!

Katee Sackhoff, Freddie Prinze Jr., Mykelti Williamson, John Boyd, Jennifer Westfeldt and Chris Diamantopoulos have joined the cast of 24 for the series’ eighth season. The Emmy Award-winning drama starring Kiefer Sutherland returns for its next astonishing day with a two-night, four-hour premiere beginning Sunday, Jan. 17 (9:00-11:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Season Eight will unfold in New York City amidst the shadows of the Statue of Liberty and the United Nations. In this new day, CTU has been upgraded and is run by MBA-schooled and razor-sharp head honcho Brian Hastings (Williamson, “Forrest Gump”). Cole Ortiz (Prinze Jr.), an ex-Marine who wants to follow in Jack Bauer’s (Sutherland) footsteps, runs the division’s Field Operations. Expert data analyst Dana Walsh (Sackhoff, “Battlestar Galactica”) collaborates with systems analyst Arlo Glass (Boyd, “The Notorious Bettie Page”) inside CTU. Rob Weiss (Diamantopoulos, “The Starter Wife”) serves as President Allison Taylor’s (Cherry Jones) new chief of staff, and Meredith Reed (Westfeldt, “Grey’s Anatomy “) is an ambitious journalist with ties to the unfolding situation. As previously announced, Sutherland, Jones, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Annie Wersching also return. In addition, Bollywood icon Anil Kapoor (“Slumdog Millionaire”) makes his American TV debut as Omar Hassan, a Middle Eastern leader who comes to the U.S. on a peacemaking mission. Source: FOX

  • As executive producer David Fury teased, Renee is a damaged person upon returning next season. However, Kiefer Sutherland says they are really trying to find peace for Jack, which includes all things that have the potential to make him happy. “People would like to see him at least have the option to have a good life,” Sutherland says. “We stripped a lot of those components over the years, by virtue of killing everybody, that whether he wants to live or die seemed to become innocuous—like who cares, there’s nothing really to live for. What we did for this season is to really try and create something that would make Jack want to live.” (Watch With Kristin)
  • “I don’t know with regard to the last season,” says Kiefer Sutherland. “It is the last season that I’ve been contracted to do 24, but I really don’t know.” (Watch With Kristin)
  • If it truly is Jack’s last hurrah, the producers are planning some return visits from seasons past. “There’s certainly a chance of [bringing back old characters]. We’ve certainly been talking about that,” says David Fury. “At this point, we’re only in the first third of the season, but we have begun to discuss some of the characters that could return.” Fury says he really wants to see Teri Bauer (Leslie Hope) return to the show. “If Tony [Carlos Bernard] is still alive, there’s every chance that Teri pulled through,” jokes Fury. In all seriousness, there’s a likely possibility that Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin) and Mandy (Mia Kirshner) could appear. Also, “You may see Tony—there may be an opportunity for Tony to be pivotal in the show,” adds Fury. (Watch With Kristin)

No word on if Kim Raver will be back as Audrey, but Elisha Cuthbert has already filmed scenes for Day 8’s first few hours. (TV Guide)

24 – Big Casting News

Suddenly, I find myself counting the minutes until 24’s new season. Perhaps this is why: Katee Sackhoff is joining the cast! Sources confirm to me exclusively that the Battlestar Galactica heroine has been tapped to play the series regular role of Dayna Pakkala, a highly respected and down-to-earth data analyst at the new and improved New York branch of CTU. Translation: Chloe-Starbuck catfight alert! This fraktastic casting coup hit a road block last week when Sackhoff abruptly took herself out of running, prompting me to post this blind item. But late Friday, word surfaced that the BSG badass was once again in the mix.

Here’s more scoop on Sackhoff’s character… She’s in a relationship with fellow agent Davis Cole (played by the just-cast Freddie Prinze. Jr.), and she apparently has a skeleton in her closet she’s trying desperately to keep hidden. As previously reported, 24’s eighth season — which premieres Jan. 17, 2010 — will be set in the Big Apple and center on an assassination plot against a visiting foreign leader (Slumdog Millionaire’s Anil Kapoor). In addition to Sackhoff, Prinze, and Williamson, new Day 8 blood includes Kissing Jessica Stein’s Jennifer Westfeldt (as a journalist with ties to Kapoor’s diplomat) and The Starter Wife’s Chris Diamantopoulos (as President Taylor’s Chief of Staff).

Greek Season Finale Spoilers & Promos 2.22 “At World’s End” & New Season Spoilers!

Episode 2.22: At World’s End (Season finale) Airdate: June 15, 2009

‘Greek’ finale: It’s the end of the world as we know it

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Grammer_stevensGreek” will close out another killer season this evening and I beg and plead with you all to watch. I mean, we already know the show is returning in August, so it’s not in danger or anything. I just want you to tune in, because “Greek” is such a little gem. My heart was so full last Monday when they not only threw down an “90210”/Emily Valentine reference, but a “Party of Five” nod as well. God bless, “Greek.” So what’s on tap for tonight? Besides shout outs to “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Dawson’s Creek” & “Felicity”? Well, if you’re a spoilerphile, you probably know that it’s a pretty pivotal episode for Cappie and Casey. I may have mentioned that in my “Drinking with Dilshad Vadsaria” post… and Dilshad herself said this is the hour fans have been waiting for forever. But, be advised, the ep does go to black on a cliffhanger, so you’re probably not going to get everything you want this week. Still, there’s some very solid stuff which I doubt you’ll be disappointed by. I can also tell you that Ashleigh’s in serious trouble for last week’s phenomenal float prank., there’s talk of expulsion… and two of this season’s integral players — one of them, a series regular — are making their exits this evening and I don’t know that we’ll see either of them return. Oh, and Dale and Calvin become a couple tonight. Yep. They’ve bonded as a result of their abstinence pledge and one things leads to another…

Question: What’s this I hear about Cappie turning down Casey on Monday’s Greek finale? Finally she comes around, and now this? Why’s Cappie holding out?
Ausiello:
Casey is quickly becoming Greek‘s Joey Potter, what with all the oscillating between men. So who does she finally pick? Assuming the rumor you heard is true, you could say that maybe Cappie doesn’t want to be a Pacey. Maybe he wants Joey to be with her Dawson. Love is complicated, dammit!

See larger image The preview for the second season finale of ABC Family’s “” has arrived. In the episode that will air Monday, June 15, Casey falls into a manhole risking her life and almost died. Sent to an emotional tailspin, she makes a huge decision about her relationship with Max and her lingering feelings for Cappie.

Spoiler Alert. The outcome is revealed via a clip released by EW’s Michael Ausiello where Casey edges Cappie into a closet to reveal her feelings. She kisses him and says “Something happened. I almost died, because of that manhole.” They laugh before Casey continues, “But, almost dying in that manhole made me realize that I could die at any time. I could slip in the shower. And I’ve been waiting all this time to feel the way with Max that I’ve always had with you. And if it’s the end of the world, I want to be with you.”

Meanwhile, Ashleigh faces her own punishment with Pan Hellenic after a complaint is lodged by Frannie for the Homecoming Float sabotage. Ashleigh turns to Casey to help fight the charge, but when Casey gets caught up in her own personal drama, she leaves Ashleigh to face Frannie alone.

Dale has trouble keeping his cougar girlfriend’s sexual advances at bay and Calvin tries his best to resist hooking up with his new hot roommate, Grant. Dale convinces Calvin to go in on a “purity pledge” partnership so they can help each resist their most recent temptations.

The third season will take over starting Monday, August 31. Sparing a word about the new chapter is Casey’s depicter who said, “I think the next season coming up we’re going to have a little more, at least for my character, it’s going to be a little more comedy. Maybe a little less love triangle story line. I’ve had like 80 triangles.”

What can you tell us about the Greek finale? Frannie is finally leaving Cyprus Rhodes University, but not before she stirs up some trouble, causing Ashleigh to almost get expelled from school. Also, Calvin becomes the first gay purity club member, just so he won’t sleep with one of his fraternity bros. What Calvin didn’t plan on was Dale pretending to be his boyfriend.
