Duo Joining DAMAGES for Final Season

Actress Jenna Elfman, best known for her work in the comedy Dharma & Greg, will stretch her legs in a recurring dramatic role on the fifth and final season of DAMAGES.

She will play an investment bank employee troubled by her company’s conduct. When she approaches Channing McClaren, recently announced special guest star Ryan Phillippe, which we reported on here, the iconoclastic founder of a WikiLeaks-type website devoted to corporate and government transparency, it lays the foundation for the case that will pit Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) and Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) against each other.

And, actor John Hannah (Spartacus and The Mummy movie franchise) will have a major recurring role playing Rutger, McClaren’s loyal adviser and protector whose ability to put out political fires and strong desire to see him succeed make him indispensible. [Source: The Hollywood Reporter]

Damages will return to DirecTV for its fifth and final season on DirecTV next summer.
