TVRage Bulletin: ‘24,’ ‘Gracepoint’ Add Familiar Faces, 'Vikings' Season 2 Premiere Date Revealed and More!

 

In addition to all of the other news we’ve been reporting, here are a few entertainment and TV headlines you might have missed:

-'24: Live Another Day' is slowly rounding out its cast. Most recently, award-winning actress Judy Davis joined the event series. She’ll portray British national Margot, who is also the widow of a terrorist. ‘24’ has also added Gbenga Akinnagbe (‘The Good Wife,’ ‘Nurse Jackie’) and Giles Matthey (‘True Blood’) as series regulars, Deadline reports. Akinnagbe is set to play Erik Ritter, a CIA field operative, while Matthey will portray Jordan Reed, a CIA computer tech.

-FOX’s ‘Broadchurch’ remake ‘Gracepoint’ has added Josh Hamilton (‘American Horror Story: Coven’) as Joe Miller, Det. Ellie Miller’s (Anna Gunn) husband. In other casting news, ‘Devious Maids’ is welcoming Joanna Adler (‘Orange Is the New Black’) as a series regular, where she’ll portray the secretive and conniving new maid Opal (she is said to resemble Mrs. Danvers from Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Rebecca’).

-’Vikings’ fans rejoice, because the History Channel has announced the premiere date for Season 2! The second season will return on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 10/9c.

-According to TVLine, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ is welcoming Captain Holt’s (Andre Braugher) husband, Kevin, played by actor/comedian Marc Evan Jackson (‘Parks and Recreation’). He will be introduced to fans when he invites the 99th precinct to Holt’s birthday party.

-'Parks and Recreation’ actress Rashida Jones is joining forces with Will McCormack (‘The Office,’ ‘In Plain Sight’) for a new single-camera half-hour HBO project, Deadline exclusively reports. Their project, ‘Claws,’ is describes as “a midnight-dark workplace dramedy-noir about a nail salon in Florida and the strange, dangerous women who work there.”

Will this version of 24 be in the future as well? Lest we forget the last session with Jack was TWO YEARS LATER than the end of the previous season. That places Jack squarely within the scope of Amazon drone deliveries.
