24 Actor Gregory Itzin Dies at 74, Played President Charles Logan

Gregory Itzin, a prolific character actor best known for playing the oily President Charles Logan on Fox’s 24, has died.

Itzin died Friday at the age of 74 due to complications during an emergency surgery, his rep confirms to The Hollywood Reporter.

Itzin earned two Emmy nominations, in 2006 and 2010, for playing Logan on the Fox thriller. At first a seemingly spineless vice president, the character grew to become one of the longest-running antagonists for counterterrorism agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland).

24 executive producer Jon Cassar shared a message on Twitter:

Gregory Itzin’s portrayal of Charles Logan was a classic, one of the most memorable characters ever on television. Just one of the many great characters we had the pleasure of watching on 24. If they ever revive 24, it will have to be without Charles Logan. However, if they do revive it, maybe Martha will make an appearance.

Sad to hear. He was one of the greatest characters

Was an absolute joy and privilege to meet this man as a youngun at a fan convention in London, he was very generous with his time and after talking to him for a while it became clear he wasn’t just an actor doing a job. Like us, he was a huge, huge fan of the show – even of the seasons he wasn’t in and the characters he never encountered – and had his own theories and predictions as we in the 24 community did.

I think him being such a fan of the show allowed him to give that little bit extra to make him arguably the best villain the show has ever had. RIP sir!
