Fox’s ’24: Legacy’ Casts Miranda Otto in Lead Role

Fox’s “24: Legacy” pilot has cast Miranda Otto in a lead role, Variety has learned. She’ll join “Straight Outta Compton” breakout Corey Hawkins, who has been tapped to star in the action drama, which will not feature former “24” star Kiefer Sutherland.

Otto will play Rebecca Ingram, the blazing smart former head of CTU. Now married to Senator John Donovan (who has not yet been cast), Rebecca is struggling with second thoughts about having left the counterterrorism agency.

24: Legacy” revolves around military hero Eric Carter’s (Hawkins) return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back — compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.

Otto is repped by Gersh and Suzan Bymel of Management 360. She was most recently seen in season five of Showtime’s “Homeland,” and previously appeared on Fox’s “Rake” alongside Greg Kinnear.

“24: Legacy” hails from 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television, in association with Teakwood Lane Productions. Original “24” producers Howard Gordon, Manny Coto, Evan Katz and Brian Grazer return to executive produce. While Fox has only ordered a pilot for the revival thus far, sources tell Variety that “24: Legacy” is expected to land a 13-episode order.
