Corey Hawkins Feels 'No Pressure' To Be Kiefer Sutherland In '24: Legacy'

Corey Hawkins is opening up about bringing 24 back without Kiefer Sutherland as the beloved franchise star Jack Bauer in 24: Legacy.

“All I have to do is walk in Eric Carter’s shoes — I don’t have to step up and be Jack Bauer. There’s no pressure to do that,” the 28-year-old actor expressed at the premiere of 24: Legacy on Monday (January 30) at New York’s Spring Studios (via THR).

“What everyone loved about 24 is still there — the clock, the tick, the lean-in factor, the pacing,” Corey added. “You can sit back and watch it, but you’re also engaged in the [controversy] of it all. But at the same time, it’s also very personal to Eric, and that’s what happened last time: People fell in love with Jack. Kiefer is amazing — I’ve been a fan of his for years. He wanted me to allow the character to continue to surprise me.”

At the premiere, Corey was joined by his co-stars Miranda Otto, Anna Diop, Ashley Thomas, Jimmy Smits, Sheila Vand, Charlie Hofheimer and Raphael Acloque.

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.”

Corey was joined at the panel by his co-stars Miranda Otto, Ashley Thomas, Anna Diop, Jimmy Smits, and co-creators Evan Katz and Manny Coto – Watch the new trailer below!

'24: Legacy' Comic-Con 2016 Panel Addresses Jack Bauer Cameo Questions!

Corey Hawkins and Miranda Otto walk the press line for the Fox Action Showcase for their show 24: Legacy during 2016 Comic-Con held at the San Diego Convention Center on Sunday (July 24) in San Diego, Calif.

The pair were joined by their co-star Jimmy Smits.

“This is an expansion of the ’24’ universe, not a reboot – Jack and Chloe are still out there,” executive producer Manny Coto said during the panel. “This is a window into the ’24’ universe from a new perspective…You never know when those worlds might intersect.” Some fans are taking that to mean that Kiefer Sutherland could make a cameo!

When asked if he could come back, producers responded, “anything is possible…We felt like the London series with Kiefer was a momentary punctuation point for that character. Our plan right now is to tell this story, and I think all of us really want to finish that story, but we also love this new and exciting version of it.”

FYI: Corey is wearing a J Brand t-shirt and Call It Spring shoes. Miranda is wearing Black Halo.
