You may recognise her as CIA station chief/ Russian spy Allison Carr from series 5 of Homeland, but she's just reportedly been cast as the "female lead" in Fox's reboot of '24'. Because 24 needs to be rebooted. As for who will by playing Jack Bauer this time around, that duty has gone to Corey Hawkins, best known for his portrayal of Dr. Dre in Straight Outta Compton. 

According to The Verge: "She'll be playing a former leader of CTU, the counter-terrorism unit that Bauer worked at / was intermittently hunted down by throughout the original series." Deadline meanwhile says: "'24: Legacy', written by 24 veterans Manny Coto and Evan Katz and directed by Stephen Hopkins (who helmed the original 24 pilot), chronicles military hero Eric Carter’s (Hawkins) return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back - compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil."

While an airdate has yet to be announced, and the show is still very much in its 'pilot' phase, Fox will no doubt aim to have it released ASAP.
