Jenna Elfman And John Hannah Join Damages For Season 5 image
While Jenna Elfman is most likely associated with comedies, having starred in Dharma & Greg and Accidentally on Purpose, among other comedic roles, she’s set to appear in a drama series Damages, which is set to premiere its fifth and final season on DirecTV at some point in the future. Elfman joins John Hannah as a recent cast addition to the series.

Damages formerly aired on FX, and when the cable network let the series go, DirecTV picked it up to air exclusively to their subscribers for its last two seasons. Season 4 finished airing last month, and the fifth season has yet to have a premiere date, though it’s probably safe to assume it’ll air at some point in 2012. According to Deadline, Jenna Elfman has been cast in a major recurring role in the legal drama, which stars Glenn Close and Rose Byrne. Elfman is set to play “an investment bank employee troubled by her company’s conduct.” She will interact with Ryan Phillippe’s character Channing McClaren, who is described as “the iconoclastic founder of a website devoted to corporate and government transparency.” All of this has something to do with a case that will have Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) and Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) going up against one another.

Meanwhile, John Hannah, whose recent TV roles include playing Quintus Batiatus in the excellent Starz drama Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, will be playing McClaren’s “loyal advisor and protector.”
