TV Junkie: Tuesday
As we reported yesterday, Jon Voight is going to be on "24" and now we learn from THR that William Hurt will be joining his The Big Chill co-star, Glenn Close, on FX's "Damages" this Fall. "Damages" was easily one of the top three programs of the year in 2007 and the addition of Hurt is beginning to solidify a picture of how the second season will function - Hurt will have regular role for the entire season on the show, playing a character that will be both a client as well as a personal acquaintance to Glenn Close's Patty Hewes.
The 9 o' clock hour is slammed tonight, also check out late night TV - some good guests. "Weeds" was great last night and its follow up, "Secret Diary of a Call Girl", the tritely romanticized take on prostitution certainly _looks_ good and has potential with its, as summed-up by LAist Editor, "Alfie with a girl" format.
