'Touch' Adds 'Lost' Alum as Series Regular, Pair of Recurring Characters for Season 2 (Exclusive)
Fox's Touch continues to add new faces for its upcoming second season.
Lost alum Said Taghmaoui has boarded the Kiefer Suthlerland starrer as a series regular, while Adam Campbell (Harper's Island) and Ray Santiago (Raising Hope) have joined in recurring roles, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
Taghmaoui -- who played Caesar for a handful of episodes on ABC's island-set mystery -- will play Guillermo Ortiz, a smart Jesuit priest-turned-killing machine.
Campbell (Parenthood) will join his wife, Glee's Jayma Mays, at the network and recur as Tony Rigby, one of Calvin's (new regular Lukas Haas) closest friends and business partner.
Santiago will play Reuben Santiago, the resident hacker at BreakWire, the online news outlet where Sutherland's Martin works, who is friendly with his son, Jake (David Mazouz), and watches him while Martin is otherwise occupied.
The trio joins Haas, Saxon Sharbino and Greg Ellis as Touch's new blood for the second-year drama from Heroes' Tim Kring. Series regular Sharbino will play the daughter to Maria Bello's Lucy, while Ellis will recur as Martin's old war-correspondent pal.
Taghmaoui (Conan the Barbarian, House of Saddam) is repped by Innovative Artists, Cohn/Torgan, Byron Wetzel and Hirsch Wallerstein; Campbell (Best Friends Forever) is with ICM Partners, MPG Management, Jackoway Tyerman; Santiago is with Paradigm.
Touch's second season returns in its new night and time at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, on Fox.
