He’s booked! Actor Corey Hawkins will star in the pilot for “24: Legacy” — the “24” revival series in the works at Fox, according to Variety.
Described as strong and smart, Eric came from a very rough background and turned his life around in the Army Rangers. Now back home in Virginia with his wife Nicole (yet to be cast), he’s pulled back into action as his past comes looking for him.
Hawkins, who’s recurred in “The Walking Dead,” will also star in the “King Kong” prequel film “Skull Island.”
Reportedly, “24: Legacy” will revolve around a military hero’s return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back — compelling him to ask the CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil. [Variety]
