LONDON, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Actor and writer Stephen Fry has confirmed on Twitter he will play the British prime minister character in "24: Live Another Day."

"Well, this particular cat is out of the bag," Fry tweeted, along with a link to a Deadline.com story about his casting in the latest incarnation of the U.S. political action series.

Kiefer Sutherland reprises his iconic role of counter-terrorist expert Jack Bauer on the series, which wrapped in 2010 after eight seasons and a TV movie.

The fresh episodes, which are being taped, take place in and around London.
