Regina King Joins 24
As 24’s “Day 6” approaches, the cast continues to assemble, with Regina King (“Ray”) and DB Woodside (24’s “Wayne Palmer”) joining last season’s most Emmy-nominated series as series regulars in season six. The clock will reset for 24 in January, Mondays (/PT) on Fox.
After last season’s assassination of beloved President Palmer (Dennis Haysbert), the Palmer Family now comes together with the addition of King as Palmer’s sister “Angela,” a powerful advocacy lawyer, and the return of Palmer’s strong-minded brother “Wayne” (Woodside) as the recently elected President.
King is best known for her roles in “Jerry Maguire” and the Academy Award-winning “Ray,” while Woodside has earned recognition for his recurring role on 24.
24, created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran, is a production of Real Time Productions and Imagine Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Brian Grazer, Joel Surnow, Robert Cochran, Howard Gordon, Evan Katz, Jon Cassar and Kiefer Sutherland are the executive producers.
