NBC’s ‘Revolution’ Casts ’24′ Star Leslie Hope As the President?

Fans may still be suffering from the long wait between ‘Revolution‘s mid-season November finale and upcoming March 25 premiere, but there’s good news on the horizon. Series show-runner Eric Kripke previously promised that the back half of the NBC drama would explore other areas of the post-blackout United States, and has enlisted former ’24′ and ‘The River’ star Leslie Hope to help. Hope will portray the “President” of rival territory the “Georgia Federation,” but will she prove friend or foe?

Far be it for us to raise your anticipation after ‘Revolution’s literal and figuratively electrifying winter finale “Nobody’s Fault But Mine,” but the J.J. Abrams-produced series just got a whole lot bigger. The network has announced that ’24′ and ‘The River’ star Leslie Hope has been cast on the drama as President Foster, leader of the Monroe Republic’s southern neighbors the Georgia Federation.

With Sebastian Monroe’s army newly gifted with the power of electricity, it remains to be seen if Foster will see our ‘Revolution’ heroes as friend or foe, though it may be a moot point. Hope will recur across multiple episodes when the series resumes its inaugural season on March 25.

Well, what say you? Are you excited that the world of ‘Revolution’ will expand when it finally returns? What do you hope to see from the back half of the season? Check out the latest trailer below, and give us your predictions in the comments!
