As reported first by Deadline, Salmon will play General Coburn, described as intelligent, fiercely loyal and powerful. He also isn’t someone to accept foolishness. That should make Coburn an excellent foil/ally/enemy for Kiefer Sutherland‘s Jack Bauer.
In addition to his recurring role on “Arrow,” Salmon has appeared on “Strike Back” and “Law and Order: UK.”
Set four years after the “24” series finale, “24: Live Another Day” finds Bauer a fugitive from justice, dealing with terrorism and other violent things in London. It is set to premiere on FOX on May 5; the first teasers aired Sunday (Feb. 2) during the Super Bowl.
