Benjamin Bratt has signed up to FOX’s upcoming event-series (read limited run stand-alone season) 24: Live Another Day.

FOX tells ScreenSpy that Bratt, who is perhaps best known for his role as Detective Rey Curtis on long-running Law & Order, will play Steve Harris, the head of CIA operations tracking Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) in London, where the series is filmed and set.

According to FOX, Harris commands the CIA operation in London that is pursuing Jack, now an exile and a fugitive from justice.

Supporting Harris’ efforts are CIA agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski, Dexter), who is both resourceful and driven; Jordan Reed (Giles Matthey, Jobs), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and Erik Ritter (Gbenga Akinnagbe, The Wire), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative.

The series also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub (Firewall), Kim Raver (Revolution) and William Devane (The Dark Knight Rises) who all reprise their original roles, along with newcomers Michael Wincott (The Crow) and Judy Davis (Life with Judy Garland).

24: Live Another Day debuts with a two hour premiere Monday May 5 at 8:00-10:00 PT ET/PT before settling in to its regular time slot of 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT from Monday May 12.
