Role on 24Edit
Kober was the third actor to be cast for the role of Conrad Haas. According to director Jon Cassar, one of the previous actors was deemed too young for the role. Cassar wanted an actor that would seem an equal to Jack Bauer, and settled for Kober in the end. Cassar then had to reshoot several scenes of the first episode to have Kober in them.
A different man than Jeff Kober appears as Haas in the 24 Trading Card Game.
