LONDON-BORN rapper and actor Ashley Thomas is set to star alongside Straight Outta Compton’s Corey Hawkins in the reboot of hit action series, 24.

Ashely, also known by his rapping moniker Bashy, will play Isaac Carter, the older brother of Eric, a role played by Corey.

“Isaac is angry at Eric regarding their bitter past (which includes Eric now married to Isaac’s former girlfriend, Nicole, played by Senegalese actress, Anna Diop,” Deadline reports.

24: Legacy, written by 24veterans Manny Coto and Evan Katz and directed by Stephen Hopkins (who helmed the original 24 pilot), centers on military hero Eric Carter and chronicles his return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
