Veteran character actor and This Is Us standout Gerald McRaney has joined Fox’s 24 franchise reboot 24: Legacy as a series regular. The new series, starring Straight Outta Compton‘s Corey Hawkins, chronicles a real-time race against the clock to stop a terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
McRaney will play Henry Donovan, the father of presidential candidate John Donovan (Jimmy Smits). A powerful oil man and passionately devoted father, Henry is dedicated to putting his son in the White House, no matter what the obstacles. This is a familiar territory for McRaney, who recurs on Netflix’s House of Cards as Raymond Tusk, a billionaire businessman who yields strong influence in Washington.
