24 Season 6: Peter MacNicol Joins Cast

The first news of season 6 has officially hit the wire – Peter MacNicol has joined the cast. MacNicol (who previously starred in Ally McBeal and currently stars in Numb3rs) will portray a high-ranking government official. He plans to shoot both 24 and Numb3rs simultaneously for next season.

Interestingly enough, MacNicol won a supporting actor Emmy in 2001 for his role of John Cage in Ally McBeal (in addition, he was nominated for Emmys three times for that role). Does that mean this bring instant credibility to the cast of 24? Not necessarily, but it doesn’t hurt it.

Is anyone thinking what I’m thinking? Is he the new Miles Papazin?
