Keanu Reeves is his spirit animal

Former Tiger Beat cover model Freddie Prinze Jr will emerge from the recesses of our 1990s memories to join the cast of “24” next season.  The Hollywood Reporter says:

Sources said Prinze is joining the cast of Fox’s “24” as a regular, playing Davis Cole, a recently returned Marine [sigh] who runs CTU Field Ops and wants to follow in Jack Bauer’s (Kiefer Sutherland) footsteps.

That won’t be easy. Kiefer’s feet are so tiny!

On the real-time drama, whose upcoming eighth season started production Wednesday, Prinze joins fellow new cast additions Anil Kapoor, who plays a Middle East leader; Chris Diamantopoulos, as the president’s new chief of staff; and John Boyd as a CTU systems analyst. All of them are regulars, while Jennifer Westfeldt has come aboard as a recurring, playing a a journalist.

For those of you not in the know, Jennifer Westfeldt is the long-time girlfriend of Jon Hamm, AKA Don Draper of “Mad Men.”  So ladies, time to sharpen those nails.  Or time to put on your murderin’ gloves.  Whatever gets you to Jon Hamm quicker.
