Ladies and gentlemen, your new Field Ops Director at CTU:
Little Ricky Schroder from "Silver Spoons" and "The Champ" (pictured)!
But this is just the latest in a series of former child actors on "24" - consider:
Sean "Goonies" Astin was CTU OverLord that took one too many breaths last season and:
Sara "Darlene Conner" Gilbert was a CTU tech that got blowed up good in Season 2...not to mention:
Lukas Haas, the kid from "Witness" as another witness who gets wacked early in Season 4, and another innocent bystander:
C. Thomas "Ponyboy" Howell was Kim Bauer's unlucky boyfriend/shrink named, interestingly, Barry that almost took a whiff of Sentax nerve gas last season. Then there's this obscure former child actor who play a minor role on "24":
He played Ace Merrill in "Stand by Me" and,
A bloodsucker in "Lost Boys". Too bad nothing more came of his career...
Anyway, look for Corey Feldman, Kirk Cameron and Tina Yothers to make appearances in upcoming seasons...
