E! Online reports that Anders is heading to 24 for a "handful of episodes" in the series eighth (and possibly final) season. Character details are not yet known, but playing a bad guy seems to work pretty well for this talented actor.
Joining the cast of 24 this season are Freddie Prinze Jr., Katee Sackhoff, Jennifer Westfeldt, Nazneen Contractor, Anil Kapoor, John Boyd and Chris Diamantopoulos. When the series returns this January, it hits the streets of New York City with a newly designed CTU -- as well as a very different Jack Bauer, who now has a new attitude and appreciation for life after his near-death experience.
