Maria Bello Lands Recurring Role on 'Touch', May Become Regular in Season 2

The Dr. Anna Del Amico of 'ER' will play a mother whose daughter shares the same gift as the son of Kiefer Sutherland's character on the FOX new drama series.

Maria Bello is heading back to work not long after her police drama series "Prime Suspect" was canceled by NBC. The Golden Globe nominee will join Kiefer Sutherland's "Touch" for a multi-episode arc, so it has been confirmed.

Deadline, which first reported the news, said that the 44-year-old actress will portray "an earth-mother type whose daughter shared a gift similar to that of Martin's (Sutherland) son Jake (David Mazouz)." If the drama series is picked up for a second season by FOX, she will likely be upped as a regular.

"Touch" has just aired its second episode on Thursday, March 22. The telecast earned solid ratings, with 11.8 million total viewers and a 3.3 rating in the key 18-49 demo. The show will return with a new episode, "Safety in Numbers", on March 29 at 9/8c.
