In his first American TV gig, "Slumdog Millionaire" co-star Anil Kapoor has joined Fox's drama "24" as a regular on the show's upcoming eighth season.

Spoiler:
He will play a Middle Eastern leader who comes to the U.S. on a peacemaking mission.

I figured they'd probably type-cast him as a terrorist.

I'm tired of the middle eastern terrorist threats. Why not go for a North Korean angle? Jack Bauer could have easily stopped that rocket launch this past weekend.

Based on the spoiler, it may be:

Spoiler:
He plays a middle eastern leader, not necessarily a terrorist. I'm thinking he may get capped within the first few episodes on American soil, causing a riff in the peacemaking. Jack then has to figure out who did it.


Is this the final season?

It's rumored to be, but nothing official has been said. After season 6 ended, FOX renewed 24 for 2 more seasons (7 and 8), so I think this is the final year that everyone including Kiefer is contractually obligated to work on the show.

Exclusive: '24' moving to New York!
Apr 14, 2009, 07:21 PM | by Michael Ausiello

After six seasons in Los Angeles and one in D.C., Jack Bauer is taking his one-man show to Broadway!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that 24 will be relocating to New York next season -- at least on screen. (The show will still be primarily shot in Los Angeles, with some NY location footage mixed in.)

Production on Day 8 gets underway next month, but already details are emerging. In addition to the move to the Big Apple,
Spoiler:
CTU will make a comeback under the leadership of a new, yet-to-be-cast male character by the name of Brian Hastings. Described as an MBA type with a razor sharp intellect, Hastings will be joined by two new twentysomething agents (one male, one female), as well as Mary Lynn Rajskub's returning Chloe.

As previously reported, Slumdog Millionaire's smarmy game show host, Anil Kapoor, is joining the cast
Spoiler:
as Arman Hashemi, a Middle Eastern leader on a peacemaking mission in the U.S.
Casting is underway for the roles of his brother and wife.

Does anyone think agent Walker will comeback if she survives this season. Her character has really grown on me.

She will be back and may become a love interest for Jack next season.

Meh, so much of Los Angeles looks like New York anyway, it'd be hard to tell the difference.

If they *really* wanted a challenge, they'd shoot Day 8 in some less predictable, and more important place.... like Dayton.

Kick Ass! I like her character and I'm sure that if they play this right, most people would love this to happen.

Hey Jack isn't a monk. He's a man and has needs too. And Renee is hot too. I think they have solid chemistry.

But with the current format, Jack will likely be made to look like a "two pump chump"... best he can hope for is some nookie in between one of the 4-5 minute time gaps during a commercial break.

Not very happy with CTU coming back next season. The whole point of getting away from that place was that it was old and tired setting. The new DC settings have been a nice change of pace. I was really hoping they'd change locations each season from now on.

"24" star promises show will finally get real
By Iain Blair
Wed May 13, 8:47 pm ET

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) Unless he's cooling his heels in jail again, actor Kiefer Sutherland is promising that "24" will actually bear a semblance of reality when the eighth season of the real-time thriller starts shooting this month.

The actor attended a "24" DVD release party Tuesday night, one of his first public appearances since he was charged with assault for allegedly headbutting a fashion designer in New York last week.

The star of the hit show, who already is on probation for a 2007 drunken-driving case and who is due to appear in court on June 22, was tight-lipped on the assault charge, and its implications for the upcoming shoot.

Conveniently, he will be in the Big Apple anyway, since the show is moving to the East Coast for the first time next season. He was similarly mum on key plot developments.

"I can tell you that it's grounded in a political shift that's taking place in the world, that I actually think is probably the most realistic thing we've ever done," he said.

"It's going to be centered in one of the most realistic circumstances, because some of our stuff -- let's be fair -- has been kind of far-fetched. But this one I think is quite possible, so I'm very excited about that."

Sutherland, 42, stars as Jack Bauer, a government agent who tirelessly saves the world from terrorists and other shady bad guys. Each season covers one day, divided into 24 real-time episodes.

In real life, he spent 48 days in a Los Angeles jail early last year after being arrested in 2007 for drunken driving. He is now serving five years probation for that incident.

(Editing by Dean Goodman)
I don't think anything needs 'spoiling'.

It surprises me that they are already starting to shoot this program and that it will shoot thru next April (like this year).

And I thought it was already on the East Coast this season?

Well, season 7 was a little different shooting-wise. They resumed production in April 2008 after the strike and filmed on and off until they completed production last December.

Most shows don't start production on their new seasons until June or July. They have had over 5 months to prepare for season 8 (usually only 2-3) so why not start it now?
