HOT FROM FOX...

LUKAS HAAS AND NEWCOMER SAXON SHARBINO JOIN CAST OF "TOUCH"

Greg Ellis ("24") To Appear In A Recurring Role

TOUCH Makes Season Two Debut Friday, October 26, on FOX

Lukas Haas ("Inception," "24," "Witness") and newcomer Saxon Sharbino have joined the cast of TOUCH as series regulars and Greg Ellis ("Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," "24") will appear in a recurring role when the critically acclaimed series returns for its second season Friday, Oct. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

In Season Two, the story setting shifts from New York to Los Angeles, where single father MARTIN BOHM (Kiefer Sutherland) and his gifted son JAKE (David Mazouz) are on the run from the mysterious and possibly sinister research facility Aster Corps, which had shown tremendous interest in exploiting Jake's ability to perceive the hidden patterns that connect people around the world. After arriving on the West Coast, the father-son team met distraught mother LUCY ROBBINS (Maria Bello) and now are determined to help find her missing - and equally gifted - daughter AMELIA (Sharbino). During their search, their paths will cross with Aster Corps genius CALVIN NORBURG (Haas), as well as TREVOR WILCOX (Ellis), a journalist and old friend of Martin's.

Haas first rose to prominence in director Peter Weir's critically acclaimed thriller "Witness," opposite Harrison Ford and Kelly McGillis. His additional feature film credits include "Inception," "Alpha Dogs" and "Red Riding Hood." His television credits include recurring roles on "Entourage" and "24."

Thirteen-year-old newcomer Sharbino most recently starred in the FOX drama pilot "Classified," executive-produced and directed by Brett Ratner ("Tower Heist"). From Flower Mound, TX, she currently resides in Los Angeles.

Ellis' feature film credits include "Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides," "Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End" and director J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek." His television credits include "24" and "Trust Me."

And don't miss an all-new bonus episode of TOUCH airing Friday, Sept. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). In the episode, Martin's car mysteriously breaks down in the town where he first became a reporter. When he begins to suspect his mentor is involved in illegal activity there, he risks severing their friendship in order to find the truth.

TOUCH is a production of Chernin Entertainment and Tailwind Productions, in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Tim Kring created the series and wrote the pilot. Kring, Francis Lawrence ("Water for Elephants"), Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Kiefer Sutherland, Suzan Bymel ("The War at Home") and Carol Barbee ("Jericho") are executive producers.
