Lukas Haas (“Inception,” “24,” “Witness“) and newcomer Saxon Sharbino have joined the cast of TOUCH as series regulars and Greg Ellis (“Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” “24“) will appear in a recurring role when the critically acclaimed series returns for its second season Friday, Oct. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
In Season Two, the story setting shifts from New York to Los Angeles, where single father Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland) and his gifted son Jake (David Mazouz) are on the run from the mysterious and possibly sinister research facility Aster Corps, which had shown tremendous interest in exploiting Jake’s ability to perceive the hidden patterns that connect people around the world. After arriving on the West Coast, the father-son team met distraught mother Lucy Robbins (Maria Bello) and now are determined to help find her missing – and equally gifted – daughter Amelia (Sharbino). During their search, their paths will cross with Aster Corps genius Calvin Norburg (Haas), as well as Trevor Wilcox (Ellis), a journalist and old friend of Martin’s.
Heroes never improved - or stayed the same - after the first season, but I hope this will.
