Wait a Second, Is Freddie Prinze Jr. Really Just Officer Jack Traven?


I’m not really going to get into the new season of 24.  I’ll allow Paul to dive into more detail about it when he chooses to do so.  I for one need to focus on two things that I am noticing in the first two episodes.

The first is that Freddie Prinze Jr. is aging.  He’s got a little puff under his eyes and just doesn’t have that same magical look he had while playing Zack in She’s All That.  Hey he’s still a handsome dude but you can tell he’s getting a little stale.   But that’s not what I was really thinking of.  What’s with his on and off “accent?”  Like is it a New York accent?  Boston?  And he goes in and out of it quite often.  Honestly I have no clue what’s going on there.

Second, they HAD to yank his character right out of Speed.  I mean really?  Same hair cut.  He’s always wearing gear that reminds you of  Officer Jack Traven.  And let’s not forget that these two look incredibly alike.  I just never pieced it together until now.

In any event, I hope you’re all enjoying the new season (so far I don’t think it’s as good as last year but I’m willing to give it a few more weeks) and let’s keep an eye out on Prinze.
