Two-Time Oscar Nominee Joins Fox Series THR

An actress with two Golden Globes, three Primetime Emmys and two Academy Award nominations has signed on for the Fox project "24: Live Another Day." The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that Judy Davis is taking on a recurring role on the "24" event series follow-up.

"Davis will portray Margo, a British national and the widow of a notorious terrorist," THR reports. "The mini is slated for a spring 2014 premiere."

Davis was nominated for Oscars for "A Passage to India" (1984) and "Husbands and Wives" (1992). She won Emmys for "Serving in Silence: The Margaret Cammermeyer Story" (1995), "Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows" (2001) and "The Starter Wife" (2007).

Davis also won Golden Globes for her performances in "One Against the Wind" (1991) and "Life With Judy Garland."

"She joins previously announced cast members Kim Raver, William Devane and Mary Lynn Rajskub, who reunite with star Kiefer Sutherland in reprising their '24' roles," the report notes. "'24: Live Another Day' will take place in London and follow the further exploits of Jack Bauer (Sutherland), taking up his story four years after the events of '24's' final season in 2010. The mini will continue with the series' signature real-time action for each episode."
