Hurt collects 'Damages'

Actor inks for season arc on FX legal series

William Hurt is set to co-star on FX's legal drama "Damages," Paul Campbell has joined NBC's new action series "Knight Rider" as a regular, Leven Rambin is in talks to come on board Fox's "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," Sophina Brown has been added to CBS' "Numbers," while D.B. Sweeney, Nick Tarabay and Michael Fairman have joined the ensemble cast of Starz's new series "Crash."

In "Damages," the CAA-repped Hurt is reuniting with his "The Big Chill" co-star Glenn Close. He has signed on for a season-long stint as a client of attorney Patty Hewes (Close), with whom he shares a professional and personal past.

On "Knight Rider," a sequel to the 1980s NBC series, Campbell ("Battlestar Galactica") will play the head research tech at Knight Industries. He is repped by WMA and ROAR.

On "Terminator," Rambin ("All My Children") will play Riley, a no-nonsense, edgy teenage girl.

On "Numbers," Brown ("Shark") will play Nikki Donat, an ex-LAPD officer and full-blown adrenaline junkie who joins the Los Angeles FBI team as a junior agent. Brown, whose role is recurring with the potential of becoming regular, is expected to fill the void left by the departure of Diane Farr.

On "Crash," based on the feature film but featuring a new cast of characters, Sweeney plays Peter Emory, a pre-bust Los Angeles real estate developer. Fairman is Lou Loskey, an older guy who can't care for himself anymore. Tarabay portrays Axel Finet, a police lieutenant having an affair. (partialdiff)
