Role on 24 Edit

Ruppert played one of the Russian terrorists that worked for Anton Beresch during the attack at the Ontario Airport on the first episodes of Season 5. He was said to be part of Beresch's C-team during the attack.

In Day 5: 8:00am-9:00am, Ruppert can be seen in the background as the terrorists take over Ontario Airport. At the start of the following episode, he collects cell phones from the hostages, and later stands guard over them with an Uzi. He runs to investigate the explosion caused by Ibrim's vest, and later is called by Beresch with the rest of C-team to prepare for the apprehension of Jack Bauer. In the next episode, he is guarding the hostages when Beresch calls out to Ivan and Ishmael, meaning he could be playing one of those two characters.
