Facinelli gets 'Damages' as a recurring


Peter Facinelli has joined the cast of FX's upcoming drama series "Damages" as a recurring.

The legal thriller, from Sony Pictures TV and FX Prods., stars Glenn Close as Patty Hewes, one of America's foremost litigators who uses all means necessary to bring down corporate titan Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson).

Facinelli will play Gregory Malina, a man who has an affair with a key witness and becomes entangled in Hewes' case against Frobisher.

Facinelli, probably best known for his starring role on Fox's "Fastlane" and his recurring role on HBO's "Six Feet Under," is repped by Paradigm and James Levy Management.
