She's also the intelligence officer who assisted Eric and his team with their mission to take down Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid.
Miranda Otto made her feature-film debut in 1987 but is known best for portraying Eowyn in "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King."

(Jimmy earned five more Emmy nominations and took home a Golden Globe for his performance as Detective Bobby Simone.) He also played Senator Bail Organa in the "Star Wars" franchise, portrayed Matthew Santos on "The West Wing," scored his 12th Emmy nomination for his work on "Dexter" in 2008 and has starred on "Sons of Anarchy" and "The Get Down."

Ashley Thomas stars as Isaac Carter, Eric's older brother — and Nicole's ex-boyfriend! The relationship between the siblings is strained due to their shared history with the same woman, but when Eric is forced to jump to action, he leaves his wife in his brother's care.
Ashley Thomas, who is known by his stage name — Bashy — in his native England, is still relatively new to the acting game. He made his television debut in 2010 and has appeared on episodes of "Black Mirror" and "The Night Of." He's released several mixtapes and EPs, plus the 2009 studio album "Catch Me If You Can" as hip-hop artist Bashy.
Charlie Hofheimer stars as Ranger Ben Grimes, the only member of Eric's former unit who's still alive after Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid's devotees start picking them off one by one.
Charlie Hofheimer made his acting debut in 1994's "Lassie." The former child star has since appeared in "Black Hawk Down," "The Village" and "Paranoia." He also portrayed Abe Drexler on "Mad Men" from 2010 to 2013. Charlie and actress Shannon Lucio are currently an item.

Carlos Bernard returns to the role of former CTU analyst-turned-terrorist Tony Almeida on "24: Legacy." In a preview of "24: Legacy," Rebecca asks permission to "mobilize a special agent" before a weathered Tony is seen in an orange prison jumpsuit. Presumably, he's been spending time in solitary confinement since he was imprisoned for treason.
Since the original "24" concluded in 2009, Carlos Bernard has popped up on "Scoundrels," "CSI: Miami," "Hawaii Five-0," "Dallas" and "The Inspectors."
