Mykelti Williamson has joined the cast of Fox’s Touch in a recurring role – the series that once co-starred Danny Glover (he made an exit after the first 6 episodes of season 1) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (she’s not returning for season 2).
Williamson will portray LAPD Detective Lang, who’s described as having seen it all and possessing a keen sense for the truth.
You’ll recall that Keith David will guest star on an upcoming season 2 episode of the series, playing a character named Dutch, described as a grizzled ex-Navy Seal who’s also an old friend of Kiefer Sutherland’s character, Martin.
The series centers on a father (played by Sutherland) who discovers that his genius son (Jake, played by David Mazouz) is communicating with him through a complex series of numbers and is able to predict events before they happen.
Season 2 of Touch will return to Fox on Friday, February 1 at 9 pm.
