Don’t worry; Cherry Jones hasn’t lost her mind and left Sarah Paulson for a man. I’m talking about Jones’ character on 24. We learned a few weeks ago that Jones will play President Allison Taylor on the seventh season of the show. Now, meet First Man Henry Taylor: Colm Feore.
If Feore looks familiar (his first name is pronounced “column,” by the way), it’s because he’s always popping up on TV or in film. Recent credits include playing General Sherman in HBO’s Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and President Adar (President Roslin’s predecessor) on Battlestar Galactica. He’s also a popular stage actor in Canada. Feore’s currently filming a TV miniseries, Guns, with fellow Canadian and 24 star, Elisha Cuthbert.
For those of you who like spoilers, TV Squad has a tidbit on what might keep Henry Taylor busy while his wife’s running the country.
I guess they make a good enough First Couple, but they’ll never be as cute as this.
So what do you think of how Season 7 of 24 is shaping up? Are you still watching? Do the additions of Cherry Jones and Janeane Garofalo make you want to watch this year?
