Benjamin Bratt will live another day…
The 50-year-old half-Peruvian American actor has joined the cast of Fox’s event series 24: Live Another Day, which sees the return of Kiefer Sutherland’s iconic character Jack Bauer and his terrorism-fighting crew to television.
Bratt will play Steve Harris, the head of CIA operations tracking down a now-fugitive Bauer in London.
Bratt’s ops team is now set: Yvonne Strahovski, Jordan Reed and Erik Ritter will play his fellow agents.
Bratt’s previous television credits include an Emmy-nominated turn on Law & Order and Private Practice. Most recently, he appeared in a recurring role as Sofia Vergara’s character’s ex-husband on Modern Family.
24: Live Another Day will have its two-hour premiere on May 5.
