24 Can't Keep a Good Slumdog Down
Who wants to be a 24 series regular? At least one star of Slumdog Millionaire.
Continuing the cast's post-Oscars domination of Hollywood (see: Freida Pinto's endless array of job offers), Bollywood heavyweight Anil Kapoor has signed on as a full-time cast member for the forthcoming eighth season of 24.
Kapoor, who made his mark on Western screens as the suspicious, outsized game show host in Danny Boyle's acclaimed film, will star as a Middle Eastern leader who comes to the U.S. on a peacekeeping mission—and, one assumes, crosses paths with Jack Bauer somewhere along the way.
As it is, Kapoor is the first major casting announcement for the next world-saving day of 24. Kiefer Sutherland & Co.'s current seventh season will conclude with a two-hour finale on May 18.
While no premiere date has been set, 24's eighth season, which will mark Kapoor's first American TV role in his nearly three-decade career, will likely kick off, as usual, in January of next year.
