Mario Van Peebles ( New Jack City) will return to Damages this season, reprising the role of Agent Harrison.

Interestingly, Van Peebles was first brought on to the FX series to direct a few Season 1 episodes, and was then cast in a small role as the agent who asks Ellen to spy on her boss. Now, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Harrison will be back for six more episodes in Season 2 (which begins in early 2009) to make sure that the ethically challenged Patty gets what's coming to her.

Van Peebles is also on board to direct new episodes of FX's new biker drama Sons of Anarchy.
