Michael Shanks on 24  
I'm sure everyone has heard by now, but MS has landed a recurring role on 24! Yay! I actually like that show!

REALLY?! But...but...I don't watch 24, and haven't ever really wanted to. Damn, I guess I'll have to start, but first I must scour the net for more on this good news.

I already watch so it's all good to me. And the acting is good on that show. I'm curious as to what kind of role he'll play.

I heard. Now I have to decide if he's enough to make me watch it.
(I mean, I'm thrilled for him getting other parts and getting to try new things...I just...he's DANIEL)

aw *pats* see, it's already a show I watch on and off, so it's not that big a deal for me. If he was on a show that I didn't like at all, this wouldn't excite me so much.

But 24. *squee*

Sounds good. I wonder how long he'll last???

Cool! Good guy or bad guy, I wonder? I wonder how long Rick Schroeder is going to last too.

Did you notice? He's gone back to "Ricky" now for some reason.

Yay! As I mentioned somewhere else, I just hope one thing MS carries over from his days of playing Daniel is the weeble gene, because life expectancy on that show is not so good.
knightshadedknightshade on March 14th, 2007 01:57 am (UTC)
I didn't notice that. But I did notice that he doesn't age. Well, okay, he looks older, but he still has a really boyish face. He's the new Dick Clark.

Yeah, you can't count on anyone sticking around 24 for very long. Not unless their name is Jack Bauer. ;-)

We seem to be crossing paths a lot and you seem like fun. Mind if I friend you?
aurora_novarumaurora_novarum on March 14th, 2007 03:31 am (UTC)
I've been finding your name is becoming more familiar too. LOL We seem to stalk hang out at some of the same places. ;-)

Friends you back.

As for Ricky. It was his cheekbones. He certainly didn't look thin in his body or neck, but his cheekbones were oddly sucked in. It was weirding me out. I wonder how long his character will last.
knightshadedknightshade on March 15th, 2007 02:55 am (UTC)
Yay for stalking hanging. ;-)

Yeah, I was trying to figure it out because there were things about him that look older but then in some ways he still looked very young. It might just be the cheekbones. I'll have to look next week.

Guess that means I'll have to start watching that show.

Yay for working! I just never watch that show. It's one of those shows that if you miss one, you're lost. Might get me to watch it though.
Cousin Mokixayeidemon on March 13th, 2007 04:44 am (UTC)
Wait, what? Really? Cool. Now I have an excuse to start watching. :D
Annalastingdreams8 on March 13th, 2007 04:53 am (UTC)
WHAT!? SCORE! I didn't know about this, but am very excited that he's doing something to expand his fandom:)....this way I can spread the love that is MS and people who watch 24 (alotofthem) will know who he is...and OYES!
Thanks for the info:)

Oh dear, now I'll have to check this show out. I'm very pleased though that MS has found another project.

Yay for MS getting another role (and something so well know, too!), but man, now I have to figure out what the hell is going on on 24 so I'll be able to watch. There should be a primer. ; )
aurora_novarum: bad dayaurora_novarum on March 14th, 2007 03:42 am (UTC)
I did a mostly incoherent synopsis and emailed it to moonshayde, but nialla42 was crazy kind enough to give a synopsis of the season here.

The concept of the show is a horrible, no good day in the life of Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU) Agent Jack Bauer (this is his "sixth" bad day).

Basically, 24 is like those old movie serials that ends on a cliffhanger every episode. Each hour of the show is an "hour" in real time. Everyone seems to need serious therapy because of all the conspiracies, betrayals, and shit blowing up.

Despite it happening in today's world, in some ways it's less realistic than SG-1 (I've literally lost track with how many nuclear weapons have exploded in the LA area over the past "six" years).

But the roller coaster ride of suspense is worth the trip, and the acting in the show is top notch, so it's quite a get for Mr. Shanks IMHO.

Oh! Good for him! I hadn't heard yet, thanks for sharing. Do you happen to know when he'll start showing up?
Mish: DeeJ -- Fangirl Baithsapiens on March 13th, 2007 12:07 pm (UTC)
Yay! Now being a fan of MS doesn't mean having to sit through a bad, cliche-ridden monster animal of the week movie! Yippee! Yahoo!

Guess I'll start watching 24 now. *grin*

I didn't hear this! How awesome for him!

I was just telling someone recently that he might have trouble breaking into mainstream American TV because of blah blah, but OTOH maybe not since he'd already done a CSI. Great to hear it's working for him!
