From Julian Sark on Alias to Adam Monroe on Heroes, David Anders just can't keep away from our favorite TV shows.

Reps for Anders confirm to us that David will be a recurring character on season eight of 24, joining the likes of Freddie Prinze Jr. and Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff. 24 is really beefing up its cast this year, raising alarm in fans that it will truly be the final season.

So what's David doing this season while Jack Bauer is hunting terrorists in New York, and how long will he be sticking around?

"He will be in a handful of episodes," says David's rep.

The rep was coy to say what his part would be, but when asked if David's new 24 character would go the way of Adam Monroe on Heroes, he laughed and said, "You never know."
