Since the release of Straight Outta Compton, actor Corey Hawkins rise to stardom increased tremendously.
Hawkins, has a reoccurring role on the hit series The Walking Dead, will star in the prequel of King Kong (Skull Island) and recently landed the role as Eric Carter in the reboot of Fox’s 24: Legacy, which is a reboot of the original series that starred Kiefer Sutherland.
According to Variety magazine, “24: Legacy” will revolve around a military hero’s return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back — compelling him to ask the CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.”
If the pilot does well, the network will proceed to produce 13 episodes.
The original series has received positive reviews and was on the air for nine seasons. I think Hawkins is a great actor and will play the role well.
