Martin Short & Campbell Scott Join Damages

In 2009 Winter Season, 2010 Winter Schedule, Damages, FX, Royal Pains, USA on 09/23/2009 at 1:44 pm

Variety reported yesterday that Damages has picked up two new cast members for it’s upcoming third season: Martin Short and Campbell Scott.  Our initial thought was that Campbell Scott would make a great addition to the cast.  He ruled it this past summer as a mysterious Russian billionaire on USA’s freshman hit Royal Pains, and we could see him sinking into a dark, confusing character on the FX series.

Martin Short, though…we didn’t see that coming.  He hasn’t played many dramatic parts and our twitter followers were all in agreement with our first thought: his casting is either a mistake or is going to be completely brilliant.  We also had the same misgivings about Darrell Hammond as the Deacon…You know, until he turned out to be one of the creepiest, awesomest character in a cast full of creepy, awesome characters.

Considering Glenn Close just won her second Emmy for the series this past weekend, we should probably just trust the Damages crew to know what they’re doing by now – they’ve earned it.

Campbell Scott

Damages is set to return to FX for it’s third season in January 2010.

Preview: FX’s Lawman

In 2009 Pilots, 2010 Spring Schedule, Damages, Deadwood, FX, HBO, Lawman, Uncategorized on 08/12/2009 at 10:56 pm

The Live Feed posted a first look preview of FX’s upcoming Lawman. Who’s that you see? Why yes it is Timothy Olyphant of HBO’s Deadwood. He’s playing a cop again – pretty nifty, eh? Don’t get us wrong, his little spin as a bad guy was a highlight of Damages second season but we’re glad to see him back as a tough guy lawman.  Type casting it may be, but he just shines in such a character.
