Timothy Olyphant, a recent guest star on Samantha Who? but best known to TV viewers from his role as Deadwood's Seth Bullock, is joining the cast of Damages for Season 2.

Olyphant's character will become "tangled" in Ellen's life as Patty's padwan recovers from whatshisname's murder while also dealing with a professional conflict in the form of new client William Hurt.

Close. Hurt. Olyphant. Perhaps Danson returning. This cast is like the 1927 Yankees. - Matt Mitovich, with Yankees reference by Rod M. Oshins
