Everyone said the Fox network was foolhardy for trying to bring back 24 without its commanding lead, Jack Bauer (played by Kiefer Sutherland, who says he’s through being Jack). The naysayers said it would be impossible for anyone to fill such a big pair of shoes. But what do you think about this….today the new lead replacement for Jack was revealed, and it happens to be someone from The Walking Dead! Who among that rugged, battle-hardened cast has it in them to become CTU’s greatest agent? Lincoln? Reedus? Gurira? Why, it’s none other than……
Corey Hawkins, AKA Heath.
Suddenly, Fox’s thought process became instantly clear. It became clear that they were MENTALLY INSANE.
Maybe he’ll have a wardrobe change, or maybe not. It’s my sincere hope that we get a scrawny hipster in dreadlocks choking a terrorist in the interrogation room while screaming “TELL ME WHERE THE BOMB IS!!” Fox’s failure would be complete and they’d never live it down, but at least we’d have a few laughs along the way.
Important note: I have not seen Straight Outta Compton and have no idea if that makes a difference. When you were watching this guy play Dr. Dre, did you see Bauer in that performance? I wouldn’t know.
