C. Thomas Howell Schedules "24"

cthomashowell.jpgHe's probably not doing this one for Johnny; it's most likely for the steady paycheck. 24 Fodder says that C. Thomas Howell is punching the clock for a short stint on Fox's "24."

Howell will play Barry Landes, a therapist and friend to Kim Bauer (Elisha Cuthbert), daughter of Jack Bauer and recent Weezer video muse.

It's nice to see him back in some worthy roles. He did a great, yet creepy, job earlier this season guest starring as a pedophile on "ER."

Many think Ponyboy has not stayed so gold, considering his direct-to-video career turn and aging looks. Hopefully "24" can give his career the same boost it's given to star Kiefer Sutherland. Howell's six other projects in the works certainly don't hurt either.

As far as his looks, it's been a long time since the Brat Pack, but has reported that he is still recovering from a 2003 ruptured appendix, which caused him to lose three feet of his intestine -- as well as 45 pounds. This gave him a more "sunken" look, which really worked to his advantage on "ER." He is currently working to put back on some weight and muscle.

Now, this is a comeback I can get behind! Nice to see Howell getting good roles. Maybe he'll surprise us all and finally make the youth-to-maturity transition that seems to elude so many actors.
