Dennis Haysbert was interviewed in the March 31, 2003 issue of People Magazine and said he’d like for David Palmer to have an action sequence!
“Dennis has this wonderful authoritative voice. He also has a puppy-dog quality,” says Penny Johnson Jerald, who plays his conniving ex Sherry. “We flirt an awful lot. Thank God I’m happily married!”
Until then, Haysbert’s counting the hours left on 24, dreaming of the chance to pull a Harrison Ford on the series. “I like where Palmer is going now, but I would love to see him become more action-oriented, like in Air Force One,” he says, laughing. “I’m a frustrated action hero.”
