'24's' Mykelti Williamson: Jack Bauer's different this year

kiefer-sutherland-24-s8-320.jpgThere's a new sheriff at CTU, my friends, and you're about to get acquainted with him.

"24" busts back into our living rooms with a brand new season this Sunday (Jan. 17) and the man now running the show is Mr. Brian Hastings.

Mykelti Williamson, who plays Hastings, says his character is a hard nut to crack and a total control freak.

In fact, as you'll see in the clip below, Hastings' compulsion to control manifests itself in the design of the new CTU Headquarters... easily the coolest CTU set we've seen to date.

What else should you know about Hastings?

Well, he and Jack are not friends. But Williamson says Brian Hastings has a reason for butting heads with Jack and insists that the audience, too, will be questioning Mr. Bauer this season: "[Hastings] is pretty aggressive and he and the Jack Bauer character don't really see eye-to-eye. They don't really like each other, but they're forced to have to do things together, which is very interesting... because Jack Bauer's different than people thought he would be this year. So do you trust Bauer? Do you trust Brian Hastings? Who do you trust?"

Watch the clip and try to make a judgment call...
