Sean Astin joins 24

astin.jpgWith the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy all wrapped up, where have all the hobbits gone? USA Today says Sean Astin, who starred in all three fantasy flicks, is joining the cast of "24."

The hit drama stars Keifer Sutherland as agent Jack Bauer. Astin will be a part of the Counter Terrorist Unit. The rest of the details about his character -- as well as much of the season -- seems to be top secret.

He's been keeping pretty busy since the trilogy ended in 2003. He currently has six films in various stages of the production process, including "Click" with Christopher Walken, Kate Beckinsale and "50 First Dates" buddy, Adam Sandler.

The fifth season of "24" will premiere over two nights on Fox, starting January 8. Starting January 16, the show will resume in its usual Monday, 9:00 p.m. (EST) timeslot. -- Rachel Cericola
