'Touch' Adds Daughter for Maria Bello, War Buddy for Kiefer Suthlerland (Exclusive)
Kiefer Sutherland and Maria Bello are going on the hunt together.
When the second season of Fox's Touch returns, Martin (Sutherland) will work with Lucy (Bello) as the pair -- with Jake (David Mazouz) -- search to find Amelia, Lucy's missing and especially gifted daughter.
Saxon Sharbino, who starred in Fox's untitled Karyn Usher pilot earlier this year, has joined the cast as a series regular to play Amelia, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
In addition, Days of Our Lives alum Greg Ellis has also boarded the second-year drama from Heroes' Tim Kring for a multiple-episode arc playing Trevor Wilcox, Martin's old war correspondent buddy.
Touch marks a reunion for Sharbino and Ellis. The young actress starred on the Usher drama, which Fox passed on in May, as the orphaned 14-year-old daughter of a CIA operative encounters a mysterious rogue agent/assassin (Julian McMahon) who serves as both her surrogate father and professional mentor in the spy world. Angela Bassett co-starred with Ellis recurring.
Sharbino is repped WME and ROAR; Ellis is with Pakula/King & Associates.
Touch's second season returns in its new night and time on Friday, Oct. 26 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
