"Dennis Haysbert is back on Fox's "24" it seems. Haysbert, like all the other cast this year short of Kiefer Sutherland, left the program after Fox drastically renovated the series.

Haysbert played the soft-spoken senator-turned-president David Palmer, an honest man surrounded by various people of differing and quite dangerous agendas - most notably his wife Sherri.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter indicates the much-loved actor has been tapped to return for the final six episodes this season. Additionally, Haysbert has landed a role in Sam Mendes' upcoming feature "Jarhead" for Universal Pictures.

"24" has a habit of bringing back characters, indeed various other members of the cast from previous seasons are expected to make a return sometime during the year. Haysbert will next be seen in ABC's limited series "Empire".

Thanks to 'Doctor'.
