Timothy Olyphant in a scene from 'Deadwood.'It was announced today that former Deadwood star Timothy Olyphant has joined the season two cast of FX's Damages in a season-long arc. This marks Olyphant's first credited TV cast role since the HBO drama went off the air over two years ago.

Olyphant, who will star with returning cast Glenn Close, Rose Byrne, and Tate Donovan, marks the second addition to the FX drama in just over a week. William Hurt joined the show last Monday.

Olyphant's character will become involved in the life of Ellen Parsons (Byrne) as she deals with her fiancé David's murder and the FBI case being mounted against her boss, Patty Hewes (Close). Hurt will play a new client of Hewes.

Season two of Damages went in to production in New York City yesterday and the show returns to FX in early 2009, likely after The Shield's seventh and final season has concluded.

This show knows how to cast thats for sure. I mean I would never of expected that the bartender from Cheers would make a great villian but season 1 proved me wrong.

Let's just hope they find a story that actually deserves 13 episodes. I thought there were at least 4 filler-episodes in Season One, 7 to 11, if not 12.

This is some awesome news. Timothy Olyphant is such an underrated and great actor. I'm sure he will make an excellent addition to the already superb cast of actors.

Now if we can get some confirmation on whether Ted Danson will be returning and then we'll be in business.
