Callum Keith Rennie, consummate creepy bad guy, has joined the cast of “24” for its eighth season, currently filming in New York City. He joins fellow “Battlestar Galactica” alum Katee Sackhoff, but while she is working for the CTU Good Guys, Rennie is (GASP) a Bad Guy Russian Mobster. Shocker.
Rennie played creepy cylon Leoben on “Battlestar Galactica” for four seasons and then took a turn as serial killer John Wakefield on “Harper’s Island.” Now he’s going to match wits with Jack Bauer. I’m still putting my money on Jack Bauer. Rennie joins the show in the sixth or seventh episode, with “24” debuting on FOX in January 2010.
