Is Bauer Movie First Two Hours Of 24’s 7th Season?? Or Not??

I am – Hercules!! has an interview with Robert Carlyle, who plays a central role in Fox's “24” TV-movie airing Nov. 23. Carlyle indicates the movie will comprise the first two of season seven's 24 hours, but a Fox exec subsequently tells TV Guide we're getting both the two-hour movie in November and a full 24-hour 7th season in 2009. Carlyle supplies other, perhaps more reliable details in the same interview: * The movie, shot in South Africa, is set in the fictional African nation of Sangala. * Carlyle’s character is Bauer’s best friend; they haven’t seen each other in something like a decade. * Carlyle claims he doesn’t know if his character will appear in the 2009 episodes. This might be a good time to recap some of the other stuff we know about the upcoming adventures of Jack Bauer: * The 7th season takes place at least four years after the 6th. We know this because Chloe O’Brien is now the mother of a 4-year-old. * There’s now a female U.S. president. The successor to David Palmer, John Keeler, Charles Logan, Hal Gardner, Wayne Palmer and Noah Daniels is played by Cherry Jones (“Signs”). * Sprague Grayden (“Jericho”) will play the president's daughter. * The president’s son, played by Eric Lively (“The L Word”), will be seen in the movie, and will go missing at some point. * Carly Pope (“Popular”) will play the son’s girlfriend. * Jon Voight (“Transformers”) will play an evil mastermind in both the movie and subsequent episodes. * Tony Todd (“Candyman”) will play the evil Sangala dictator in both the movie and subsequent episodes. * Janeane Garofalo (“The West Wing”), who played an FBI agent in “Clay Pigeons” and Mary Lynn Rajskub’s boss on “The Larry Sanders Show,” plays an FBI agent in season seven. * Gil Bellows (“Ally McBeal”) will play a State Department employee in the movie. * John Billingsly (“Star Trek: Enterprise,” “The Nine”) has been cast as somebody named Latham. * Series icon Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) and his giant soulpatch live. * We can expect the seventh season to be set several months after the movie. You can still watch a trailer for the 7th season, some of which was shot last fall before the writer’s strike, here.
