IN his first se­ries role in 40 years, Jon Voight (pic­tured) plays a re­cur­ring char­ac­ter in the forth­com­ing sev­enth sea­son of 24.

Voight plays the uberneme­sis of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Suther­land) and is pulling the strings be­hind a ter­ror­ist threat.

The char­ac­ter is in­tro­duced in the movie 24: Re­demp­tion, a pre­quel to sea­son seven.

Voight will be fea­tured heav­ily in the lat­ter half of the sea­son.

His role marks the first high-pro­file vil­lain cast­ing on 24 since sea­son one, when Den­nis Hop­per ap­peared in the fi­nal episodes as Ser­bian na­tional Vic­tor Drazen.

Voight did sev­eral TV guest spots early in his ca­reer. He con­cen­trated on film when his movie ca­reer ex­ploded with Mid­night Cow­boy.
