Mary Lynn Rajskub was interviewed by FOX 2 News St. Louis and spoke about 24: Live Another Day and the 24 movie. Watch the video (or read the transcript below) to hear what she had to say.
24: Live Another Day’s Story
Twelve episodes will be airing May 5th. It’s really exciting, I was pretty surprised about it too. I’ve been filming in London since January. Jack Bauer is a fugitive which is where we let off at the end of season 8. It’s four years later. My character is very anti-government, so I’m working with an underground organization called “Red Sect” that leaks government secrets. Chloe and Jack don’t see eye to eye when we first meet them. And there’s more thrills and more global threats.
On being worried about Chloe’s death:
Of course. Every time I work. That’s very much classic 24, you never know. They’re not sentimental about who goes and when they go.
On learning “24” received 73 Emmy Award nominations throughout its run:
Is that true? That’s a pretty cool statistic, I like that. The excitement is just growing and growing since the very first scripts. We’re on [episode] 9 and 10 out of 12 now. Everybody is really excited and really happy and working really hard to make sure it has that classic 24 feel but is even more exciting than before. They don’t want to let the fans down.
Will the 24 movie still happen?
These twelve [episodes] that came together happened so organically and so quickly that I did hear the producers and writers saying that the film is still an option. So I think there’s just this renewed spirit for this show, and they say that it’s still open to happening.
