Freddie Prinze Jr. will be appearing as Cole Ortiz alongside Kiefer Sutherland in Fox's 24 television show. New stills from the season premiere have recently surfaced. Several Wing Commander actors have appeared in various cameos, but this new position will be a high profile role. Day 8 has a four hour premiere spread out over two nights beginning Sunday, January 17, 2010.
Sources said Prinze is joining the cast of the Fox series "24" as a regular, playing Cole Ortiz, a recently returned Marine who runs CTU Field Ops and wants to follow in the footsteps of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland).
