24 Season 6: Rick Schroder Joins Up

The latest news from reports (WARNING: Spoiler Alert):

As the Season Six premiere rapidly approaches, Rick Schroder ("NYPD Blue") has joined the award-winning cast of "24." Schroder will play forceful CTU Operative MIKE DOYLE, who teams with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) to execute crucial field operations.

Yay! Just what the show needed, some snobby white kid that was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Seriously, 24 finally wins an Emmy and they start hiring all sorts of actors to be on the show. I guess it wasn't enough for several no names to carry the series this far, now that they're "legit," they have to get real actors to act horribly.

So they got Rick Schroder? A guy whose most well-known credits are for an 80s sitcom that lasted 11 episodes and a sinking NYPD Blue? And what's he going to be on 24... a "forceful CTU Operative." Because really, are there any other types of operatives? You can say yes, but then I'll be quick to point out that if you're not forceful (aka, if you're not like Jack), you die. This guy sounds right out of the blueprints of Jack.

But is he a sidekick to Jack? Or is he the guy that replaces Jack when he's overseas getting tortured to not-death? More importantly, is he dating Kim?

This reeks of Season Three's Chase Edmonds, and it smells delicious.

I do like your blog but as I came across this post I found it hard to believe that his "80s sitcom" (Silver Spoons for anyone not paying attention) only lasted 11 episodes. Maybe you dropped a digit, because I looked it up and it's 116. Not that I'm a big Schroder fan, but it's not like he's the straw that broke 24's back; 24's been broken for a while now.

Criticism and negativity is always boring. Its a fact of life. People get sick of it very fast. I dont really get the point of what this blog is trying to achieve.
