William Hurt joins Damages

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Jun 16th 2008 8:02PM

William HurtFX announced today that William Hurt has joined the season two cast of Damages. He'll play a new client of Glenn Close's Patty Hewes. No further description of his character was given, but the possibility of a professional and personal relationship with Hewes was hinted at.

This will mark the first time that Hurt has signed on to a TV series as a regular as well as the first time he and Close have worked together since The Big Chill. No word on whether or not Hurt's character will extend to the third season though. Damages got the double season renewal back in November.

And now we speculate. How exactly will Hurt's character tie into the overall story? Will he be connected with the FBI and help Ellen bring down Patty? Will he have ties to Frobisher? Could he be the father of Patty's deceased daughter Julia? So many questions, but don't get too excited. Even though the show goes back into production next week, it won't return to FX until early 2009.

I love William Hurt....but I dislike Damages immensely. Maybe they'll tone down the outrageous twists and add a little "nuance" next season.

I'm looking forward to the return of Damages (one of the two best shows to debut last year; the other being Mad Men), but the addition of William Hurt doesn't get me too excited. Judging from the lack of comments here, I'm not the only one.
