‘Straight Outta Compton’s Corey Hawkins to Star in ’24’ Reboot

All of you 24 fans that were sweating the loss of Jack Bauer have a few more things to worry about. Straight Outta Compton star Corey Hawkins has been cast as Eric Carter, the new lead of 24: Legacy—which is a definite win for the show. But, none of the original characters will reprise their roles, and the composition of the show won’t mirror the original real-time episodes format. So basically, it’s an entirely new show, which, even for hardcore fans of the Jack Bauer era, may not be such a bad thing. Hawkins’ character had a rough childhood, a stint in the Army Rangers, and lives a quiet life with his wife Nicole until “he’s pulled back into action as his past comes looking for him.” It sounds like a great new era in suspenseful action television, but only time will tell if it lives up to its predecessor.
