Actor Sean Astin landed his latest role on the hit series 24 after he cornered the show's creator in his underwear during a chiropractic session.

The actor was thrilled when a routine adjustment turned into an audition and thanks his chiropractor for introducing him to the show's creator.

Astin recalls, "JOEL SURNOW, the creator, was waiting in a room in his boxer shorts and asked me if I wanted to be on the show."

The Lord Of The Rings actor insists he is a big fan of the KIEFER SUTHERLAND series and immediately went out and rented the entire series on DVD to prepare for his new role as an espionage boss.
