DAMN IT, CHLOE! MARY LYNN RAJSKUB CLOCKS IN FOR “24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY” DEBUTING SPRING 2014 ON FOX
“24” fan-favorite Mary Lynn Rajskub reunites with award-winning star Kiefer Sutherland when she returns to the storied franchise to reprise her iconic role as CHLOE O’BRIAN, CTU systems analyst and JACK BAUER’s (Sutherland) confidante, in the thrilling new tent-pole event series 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY premiering in spring 2014 on FOX.
Joining “24” in Season Three (2003), Rajskub clocked the series’ second-most episodes of any actor appearing in the series’ eight-season run from 2001-2010. Day after day, the always-awkward and intelligent O’Brian was Bauer’s CTU sidekick, as her tech mastery, unconventional tactics and know-it-all mentality proved critical in his heroic missions.

24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY restarts the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise. The suspenseful event series will follow the further exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER, taking up his story several years after the events of the final season. Once again, viewers will join Jack on a pulse-pounding ride in real time.
Rajskub, a highly prolific actress and comedian, has appeared in films such as “Firewall,” “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde,” “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Punch Drunk Love,” “Dude, Where’s My Car?,” “Storytelling” and “Road Trip.”
