Sean Astin played Lynn McGill during Season 5 of 24. He has been well-known since the mid-1980s for his roles in such films as Rudy and The Goonies, but is best known for playing Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings. He and his wife, Christine Astin, were also nominated for an Academy Award for their short film, Kangaroo Court.

Role on 24 Edit

The casting of Astin was a stroke of luck. Astin's chiropractor was also Joel Surnow's chiropractor. The pair just happened to be in the office at the same time; the doctor asked Astin if he would like to meet Surnow, who in turn asked if Astin would like to be on 24. [1]
