The ‘24’ Absurd-O-Meter: Bonus Michelle Dessler Edition
We ran into Reiko Aylesworth, who used to play CTU agent Michelle Dessler on 24, at a party for the new Philip Seymour Hoffman play, Jack Goes Boating, recently. And so we realized we had a perfect opportunity to get some expert insight on our 24 Absurd-o-Meter, which she confessed she hadn't seen. Did you ever read a script and just blurt out, "What the hell?!" Oh, we would do that, probably every other day. There's a lot of stuff that gets to us, and we say, "Oh, come on." And it actually doesn't even air. There were things that they wanted to do with my character … Like what? Oh, like, suicide. Within the course of 24 hours, I become suicidal.
