How Jack Bauer Gets From the Bronx to Midtown in Five Minutes

When we caught up with 24 director Brad Turner last week at the premiere for season eight, we wondered how Jack Bauer navigates the city so fast by car. "You know what, you get a break in traffic in New York City occasionally," he explained. "I know that; I’ve been in cabs here. The way to look at it is that we get a break in traffic more than anybody else. And just like, if Jack Bauer was James Bond — as far as I’m concerned, Jack Bauer is the James Bond of America — he gets the break." See Jack, Chloe, and the rest of the cast in the Party Lines slideshow.
