'24' Cast Keeps Growing

(Posted December 23, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

A pair of Broadway veterans will step away from the stage and into the world of counterterrorism on the upcoming season of "24."

Jayne Atkinson, a two-time Tony Award nominee, and Tony winner Stephen Spinella are the two latest additions to the FOX series, which premieres Sunday, Jan. 15. They join a sizable list of newcomers to the show for season five, including Sean Astin ("The Lord of the Rings"), Jean Smart ("Frasier"), Connie Britton ("Spin City") and Peter Weller ("RoboCop").

Season five of "24" picks up 18 months after the events of last season, with the presumed-dead Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) leading a new life under a different name with a single mother (Britton) and her teenage son (Brady Corbet). Soon, though, Bauer is drawn back into his former life.

Atkinson and Spinella have acted together in the past: They appeared in a production of "Our Town" that was filmed for Showtime and had recurring parts on the CBS series "The Education of Max Bickford."
