Danny Glover Joins Kiefer Sutherland In Tim Kring's Touch
Even with the rapid deterioration of this last television project, Tim "Heroes" Kring's new Fox drama, Touch, seems to be gaining some momentum by adding another star to a cast that already includes Kiefer Sutherland and David Mazouz. The one-hour drama pilot just added Danny Glover to the mix. Apparently he's not too old for this TV shit.
TVLine announced the addition of the Lethal Weapon star, noting that "Glover will play Arthur DeWitt, a professor and an expert on children who possess special gifts when it comes to numbers." Why would you need a character who's an expert on children with "special" gifts? Well, Touch is about a father (Sutherland) who finds out that his autistic and mute son can predict the future. What will they do with these special powers? I don't know, probably fight crime or something (let's hope it can keep its audience longer than Kring's Heroes).
Either way, I've always been a big fan of both Sutherland and Glover, so this show has some definite promise (and the first season of Heroes was pretty great). If picked up, expect to see Touch as a mid-season addition on Fox.
