Janeane Garofalo Joins 24, Joel Surnow, FOX


Could Hothead Garofalo Boost '24' Ratings?

Memo to aspiring unhinged Hollywood liberals: uncontrollable rage can be good for your career. Not just good, in fact, but downright fantastic!

Leading the way is eternal sorehead Janeane Garofalo, whose resume just seems to build with each public outburst. Now, she's been added to the cast of Fox's 24.

Can she bring additional ratings to Joel Surnow's primetime show, a feat she couldn't accomplish for Air America Radio?

From the Hollywood Reporter's story:

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 the second major cast addition to the action drama, which is going through a major revamping coming off a lackluster sixth season. Cherry Jones was tapped last month to play the new president (HR 7/21).

After two production delays related to major changes to the story line, "24" is now slated to begin production on its seventh season Sept. 10 (HR 8/16).

Garofalo's most recent TV series gig was a role on "The West Wing," Aaron Sorkin's left-leaning White house drama for NBC.

For a trip down Garofalo memory lane, here's an account of her stand-up act stumbling in British Columbia, her talk show on life support and the final exit.

Memo to the co-stars: don't rip Scientology in her presence, unless you're begging for an elbow in the groin.

Meanwhile, the American Thinker believes 24 may very well have Jumped The Shark.

  • memo to Brian

    Garafalo had a careeer way before she ever spoke about Politics, before AAR, and will continue to do so. so the point of this post, NOTHING.

    Here's a clue, when you blog, have something to say.

    and Garaffalo was 100% right about the war, since 2002, this was a WAR for OIL, the whole world knows it, and Garaffalo had the guts to point it out.
    Garaffalo, talented actress, talk show host, pundit and comedian

    Maloney, failure, talentless blogger, and desperate brown noser.
    How brown is your nose after shoving it Rush for 3 years

  • I have no idea what would inspire such a talented, intelligent young woman to appear on that piece of garbage.

  • It would only make sense if Barofalo played a terrorist sympathizer.

    moPoop, here's a clue, when you comment, have something to say.

    If you follow that rule, you'll comment far less, save us from having to read your insane rantings, keep your monitor spittle free and reduce the rate at which you have to replace your keyboard due to damage from your club handed pounding.

  • Great, more wisdom from yet another military loser.

    MOP, you just go ahead and comment all you want.

  • Hey Hash!

    How does it feel being banned from a site for being a Racist?

  • How does it feel to be a nappy-headed crackhead savage, fudgie?

    By Blogger hashfanatic, at 22 August, 2007 17:31  

  • MoPoop,

    Garafolo was a piece of crap in "No Time for Love". Her acting hasn't gotten any better since.

  • Fudgie, I never would have taken you for someone who makes it a point to watch Janeane Garofalo's films?
