Damages gets more Mario Van Peebles

Mario Van Peebles.I don't know how Mario Van Peebles finds the time for all the work he's been doing lately. Somehow he fits it all in. And now he's circling back.

Mario Van Peebles will return to FX's Damages for six episodes, reprising his role as Agent Harrison. He was briefly seen as the FBI agent who approaches Ellen about going after Patty Hewes (Glenn Close). Indications are that Ellen will work with the Feds in some way, because Patty has definitely crossed the lines of legality -- and morality -- multiple times. Agent Harrison only cares about the former.

At the same time, Van Peebles is also assigned to direct FX's motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy. That new series, with Ron Perlman, premieres in September.

Mario has directed a few Damages, too, in addition to appearing on screen. He's currently also in pre-production for The Uniters, a film in which he's writing, directing and appearing.

Oh, and if you turn on ABC daytime on All My Children, you'll see that he's becoming romantically involved with Erica Kane -- the one and only Susan Lucci -- playing Samuel Woods, an ambitious politician. He first appeared on the soap last January, as a guest on Erica's talk show, but then he had her arrested for insider trading. Since then, she's been in the slammer and they've developed a friendship that will soon be flaming into a hot affair.
