It's still six months away, but since 24
pretty much kicked ass in the seventh season--well, because it failed
to in the sixth--suddenly the anticipation for the eighth is higher
than it should be. And it's a good thing. If you have big names
joining your show, and are coming off a resurgence of sorts, then you
must be feeling comfortable--at least until the bombs start exploding.
Here, then, are some more details about what could happen on the
upcoming season of the show, collected from a handful of places and put
together... because we can. Somehow. If you don't want details, go skip this now, quick!

First up, Kiefer Sutherland, who talked to Entertainment Tonight and spilled some bits about what we should expect in the new season, which premieres in January. "One of the things that's exciting about season eight for us,
which is different from all the other seasons is it's directly
connected to the end of season seven," he said. "Normally there's a
year or two break between seasons, between story lines--and this year
that is not the case."

And the fact that they're shooting in New
York has given the series a boost of sorts, too. "There's a real
tangible energy you can't deny that about New York City," he said.
"The situations have always made Jack Bauer speak really quickly, and now he runs really quickly because in New York you've got to do that."

latest season, he says, has the most realistic storyline they've done
in the show. "It centers around peace conferences taking place at the
UN between the president of Iran and the President of the United
States, which I believe is possible within the next few
years," he told TV Guide Magazine. "Obviously there will be a lot of people who will want to fight that. This is about fighting off that threat to peace."

Switching back to ET,
there's Freddie Prinze Jr., who takes a serious turn as new CTU agent
Cole Ortiz. (Note, the name was changed from when it was first
announced.) "It's trial by fire, but it's good so far," he told the
show. "It's been a lot of fun. I'm scared to say it's the best job
I've ever had, but right now, it feels like the best job I've ever had."

In a separate interview with TV Guide Magazine,
he spills a bit about what his character is about to face--and while
most of it's stuff we already know, well, here it is anyway. "There's
a moment between my character, who runs field ops, and [Katee
Sackhoff's] character, Dana Walsh, who runs the tech side of things,"
he said. "They're engaged and it's difficult having a relationship at
work when the stakes are so high. They're having some problems that I
really can't get into. You see that somebody's holding things
back--maybe she has a secret which he has to concern himself with.
He's a Marine and he bases everything on having a plan with a
coordinated attack. There's an interesting dynamic on how he's going
to deal with her."

Also talking to the magazine is Anil Kapoor, the first high-profile new member of this season's cast: the Slumdog Millionaire
star will play Middle Eastern politician Omar Hassan. "I have one
scene in a car with my bodyguard," he said. "Suddenly I'm sending
messages to my country to say people [behind an assassination attempt
on his character's life] have to be taken to task and arrested. I can
sense that the bodyguard is uncomfortable and the way that the scene
progresses is very dramatic. I speak about the peace process, my
younger brother Akbar and my family. It's a catharsis for my

Speaking of a family, he's got his family and another girlfriend. Omar, Omar, Omar.

Finally, Mary Lynn Rajskub
hints at some problems ego-wise at the resurrected CTU. "Chloe is not
up to speed in the new CTU, which is very different for her," she
said. "[Katee] plays my new boss, and she kind of pats me on the
shoulder and says, 'Don't worry--you'll catch up,' which is the worst
moment for Chloe ever. Everything's changed at CTU and my bosses are
looking at me like I'm not doing it right. But then something happens
in the story where I think I know some information which pits me at
odds with my bosses."

Must be something with the new CTU
offices, which is "like a spaceship," Rajskub said. "It's sleek with a
lot of glass, and underground with a tunnel you drive through to get
into it. I feel kind of like Batgirl."

Batgirl on 24? Interesting thought.
