Fox is bringing 24 back without Kiefer Sutherland as the franchise star Jack Bauer, instead, 24: Legacy revolves around Corey Hawkins as Eric Carter – a young veteran of the War in Afghanistan who finds himself the target of a terrorist group.
Wile speaking at the 24: Legacy panel during the FOX portion of the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour held at Langham Hotel on Wednesday (January 11) in Pasadena, the 28-year-old actor opened up about the cultural significance of his casting.
“The script happened to be amazing when I read it,” Corey added (Variety). “It lifted off the page, and my mind just started going with where you can take it and what it means in television to be a hero and look like I look. It’s not just about his skin color, it’s about his culture. It’s about where he grew up. It’s about what does it mean, what are the alliances growing in Washington, D.C. southeast, where I happen to personally have grown up.”
Star just made its premiere on Fox last night (January 4), and now, we have the very first music video from the premiere episode!
Star is an emotionally powerful drama that follows three talented singers – Jude DeMorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O’Grady – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start, with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cut-throat music business.
The clip from the premiere episode is for the track called “It’s Alright,” which features all three ladies providing the vocals.
In case you missed it, Star also released a Premiere EP for the show, featuring “I Can Be,” “One Day,” “Break Yo Chest” and “I Bring Me.”

“I did this before Trump was in, so we’ve had to shift course,” Lee expressed at the event (via Variety). “I saw America coming to a civil war, I thought, in front of my eyes. The conversations I’ve had to have with my son. For me there was [Martin Luther] King, Malcolm X, the [Black] Panthers, I remember them vividly. And there aren’t any now, so I’m going to invent one in [the character of] Derek [Quincy Brown] and tell his story. I want people to walk away from this knowing we’re all one. It doesn’t matter that you’re black or white. What do you say when you have a sister that is black, and you’re white? What do you say? Family is wherever you find it.”

“The fans are on another level, it’s incredible. But you know, we’ll have to wait and see,” Jussie expressed about the upcoming Empire season finale (via ET). “It’s handled in a beautiful way. I think there’s going to be tears and [there's] also going to be a lot of happiness. So you know, it’s OK. It’s going to be great. It’s a phenomenal finale and all questions are going to be answered Wednesday at 9/8 Central, only on Fox.”
