Corey Hawkins to Play Male Lead on Fox's '24: Legacy'

Corey Hawkins will be playing the hero on the upcoming Fox series 24: Legacy.

The 27-year-old actor is best known for his work in last year’s acclaimed movie Straight Outta Compton and his role on The Walking Dead.

Corey will play military hero Eric Carter and the series “chronicles his return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil. Coming from a very rough background, Carter turned his life around in the Army Rangers but now, back home in Virginia with his wife Nicole, he’s pulled back into action as his past comes looking for him,” according to Deadline.

Kiefer Sutherland will not return to the series to play Jack Bauer and there will be a strong female lead added to the cast. While none of the original 24 cast members are expected to appear in the reboot, they may be mentioned and photos of them may be shown.
