Garofalo to Star on 24

by Sean Hackbarth

The flaming Lefty Janeane Garofalo will be starring in the next season of 24 injecting some controversy and buzz:

The political left and the political right are going to meet on Fox’s “24″ this coming season.

Actress-comedian Janeane Garofalo, an outspoken liberal, is set to co-star on the conservative-leaning real-time drama, whose co-creator/executive producer Joel Surnow jokingly describes himself as a “right-wing nut job.”

On the Imagine TV/20th Century Fox TV series, Garofalo will play a government agent who is part of the team investigating the crisis befalling Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and company in the upcoming season.

Garofalo is a pretty good actress. It’s when she spouts off like a pundit on shows like Real Time or Countdown that she irritates me. As long as her acting is good and the writers give her something decent to say she’ll be fine with me. I survived a female Starbuck in the new Battlestar Galactica; I should be able to tolerate Garofalo.

In related news Scott Ott “scoops” everyone with word that Michael Moore might be Jack Bauer’s buddy. If it happens Jack will have to keep close watch on Moore. If the terrorists don’t get him he just might eat himself to death.

“Time Right for Garofalo on 24

UPDATE: Steve Verdon takes the black comedy route, something I always appreciate, with a headline reading, “How Will Janeane Garofalo Die?”

Right. Who would entrust Munchin’ Moore as his backup? That slob couldn’t run a block before his heart would explode.

And Geraffelo? Well, she bombed on the radio. Maybe she just plays an CTU-infiltrating android bomb on the next show.
