Touch Adds Maria Bello for Guest Arc

maria bello touchIt looks like Touch is getting a little touch…of Maria Bello.

According to Deadline, the Fox drama will be adding the Golden Globe nominee for multiple episodes this season. Should the character work out, and the show get its expected season 2 pickup, there’s an option for bringing Bello back into the fold. She’s set to play a woman with a daughter that possesses the same gift that Jake has, the ability to predict future events based on numbers.

Before landing on Touch, Maria Bello starred in the short-lived adaptation of Prime Suspect for NBC, which had its final episodes burned off in January. Most known for her feature work in the likes of The Cooler and A History of Violence, she’s had roles in ER, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and Law & Order: SVU. Aside from Touch, you can next check Bello out in Walter Hill’s St. Vincent, a crime drama about a hitman going undercover as a priest.

From writer/producer Tim Kring (Heroes), Touch follows single father Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) in his attempt to connect with his mute son Jake (David Mazouz). He discovers that while his son doesn’t have the ability to speak in words, he can communicate through numbers. Namely, he can use numbers to help predict future real world events, so Martin has to figure out just who to let in on Jake’s ability and whether or not “outing” him would be the best thing. The show features Gugu Mbatha-Raw as a social worker looking into Martin and Danny Glover as a child expert with a gift for numbers.

Touch airs Thursdays at 9:00 on Fox.

What did you think about the new episode of Touch last night? Are you happy to have Maria Bello back on TV? Do you think her character will help shine any new light on Jake’s condition?
