Peter Weller on convincing ’24’ writers to spare Christopher Henderson

Peter Weller talks about his stint on 24‘s fifth season and convincing the writers room to keep his character around longer than originally planned.

You’re playing a character, you always want him to get away. But I can’t always be as fortunate as I was in 24, where I sorta convinced Joel Surnow and Howard Gordon and Manny Coto when I was playing this guy Christopher Henderson: I said, “He can’t just be tortured like every other schlub that comes in here.” And then Howard came up with the idea that I would “kill” Tony, and then thankfully they kept writing me in. So that was great, because they just spun that guy into some sort of mythical metamorphosis and then he died at the end.

Really like Peter Weller when he was RoboCop back in the ’80s.

Henderson should’ve been a longer running villain. They kept the utterly pointless and shite Cheng around for far too long!
