Damages: Can Chris Messina's Sanchez Trust His Superiors?

Chris Messina

There's a good reason Damages' Chris Messina seems jittery most of the time he's on the screen — and it's only partly because his character is a soldier suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Patty goes to therapy? Things get flip-turned upside down on Season 4 of Damages

"I felt a huge responsibility to the soldiers to make it as honest as I could," Messina tells "I played a lot with sleep, and I think the most I didn't sleep was three days in a row. And I'm not a caffeine drinker, but I would play with drinking a bunch of Red Bull before the take. So, the sleep deprivation on top of the instant sugar-caffeine rush ended up making me very shaky."

Messina's Chris Sanchez has plenty of reasons to tremble. He's an employee for a Blackwater-esque private military company led by Howard Erickson (guest star John Goodman), and after Sanchez's last mission in Afghanistan went south, his entire unit was killed. Enter Sanchez's old high school friend Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne), who wants to make Sanchez the star witness in her wrongful death lawsuit against Erickson... read more

Premise: Life---and death---at a family-owned funeral home in Los Angeles plays out in this provocative, at times macabre series created by Oscar-winning screenwriter Alan Ball (`American Beauty'). A recipient of several Emmys, it's a compelling, superbly acted drama laced with considerable wit and poignancy. Each episode begins with a fresh corpse (including the clan's patriarch in the premiere), which usually has something to do with the ongoing dysfunction in and around the Fisher household.
