This is great news. I loved the first season of "Damages", and it speaks to the high quality of the show that a fine actor like Hurt would take a role. I haven't seen him do much television, other than guest-starring on "The King of Queens", of all shows.

Hi guys, if you're a fan of William Hurt, you'll be pleased to hear he's in Damages season 2 as Daniel Purcell.

I've included details below as well as information about an exclusive podcast interview we did with stars of the show.

As we reach episode 5 of Damages, Patty redoubles her efforts to punish Ultima National Resources (UNR) for dumping toxic waste and Ellen is more determined than ever to maintain the FBI’s investigation of Patty. In this week’s podcast interview, Glenn Close and Rose Byrne reveal exclusive insights into the show and discuss how it feels working on scenes they don’t know the outcome of.

Episode 5 catch up
The case against UNR is gathering pace. Patty is more determined than ever to prosecute UNR for dumping toxic material, despite Daniel failing to back up her claims. Knowing that UNR is seeking approval from the government for an upcoming merger, Patty hands over her files on the company to Douglas Schiff, the deputy director at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Even though Schiff has the evidence to halt the merger, he tells Patty that he’s been overruled by his superiors at the FERC.

At Tom’s tenth anniversary at the firm, Ellen returns to Patty’s apartment for the first time since the murder of her fiancé. However, the FBI are concerned that Patty is becoming increasingly suspicious. Ellen is worried that the case against Patty will fall apart and that her collaboration with the FBI will be exposed so she leads Patty astray, telling her that she had been approached by the FBI but has refused to cooperate with them. Finally, and to protect Patty from further investigation, the hitman hired to kill Ellen during the Frobisher case is sent into hiding by Uncle Pete.

In next week’s episode
What lengths will Patty go to tie UNR to the murder of Daniel Purcell’s wife? What will be the outfall of Patty’s accusations and will Ellen link Frobisher to the murder of her fiancé?
