From White Castle to 24

[possible 24: Day 6 spoiler alert]

Why do the producers of 24 insist on taking well known actors from other shows/movies and placing them in terrorist roles? For example:

You all remember the movie Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle? Kumar, the stoner who's SOLE interest in life was getting to White Castle and getting 15 mini burgers, is now part of the terrorist group bringing trouble for Jack Bauer and CTU.

And they showed a preview clip for tonight's episode, and who else has been cast as a terrorist? Sean Majumdar from Just for Laughs! So we have two comedians playing terrorists?! Hmmm, kinda hard to believe.

They also have that guy who played the Emir's son in Syriana/doctor in Star Trek DS9 playing as Al-Awad.

Now THERE'S a great actor. Although, something tells me we won't be hearing from Majunder's character anytime soon...
