Exclusive: 'Damages' retains Campbell Scott

Damages-Scott-Campbell_lDamages has booked its first season 3 client: Campbell Scott is joining the cast as a series regular, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Truthfully, I don’t know if the former Six Degrees star is playing Patti’s new client, colleague, or arch nemesis. An FX insider tells me that producers are keeping details about Scott’s character — and the new season as a whole — very close to the vest.

Here are two things I do know for sure: Production resumes at the end of September and the third season is slated to debut in January.

Who do you think Campbell is playing? And does the Longtime Companion actor measure up to previous Damages VIPs Ted Danson. William Hurt, and Timothy Olyphant? Sound off below!

    His intensity is more of a slow, steady burn in my opinion. I’m looking forward to seeing what he offers the series. (Since he was misused on Royal Pains.)

  • Susan

    so what does that mean for his Royal Pains character?

  • licia

    Finally some damages news! My love for you grew 92846928 times bigger, Michael.

    Will Campbell Scott be back on season 2 of Royal Pains? popculturecurmudgeon.com

    Now this is one of the best shows on TV! It doesn’t matter what he does, the show will be great!

  • Bill, in Dallas

    Been a fan of Campbell Scott since “Longtime Companion” and a fan of “Damages” since the first season. Great combination!

  • Adam

    Knowing this show, Campbell will play Patti’s friend, client, co-worker, AND enemy in one episode. It makes the series fun to watch though.

  • Amanda from Michigan

    Campbell Scott is aging gracefully.

    William Hurt was a VIP? HAHA. His performance was so dull and lifeless. How about replacing him with a real VIP: Zeljko Ivanek.

    • Allan

      I agree. One of the worst, phoned-in performances ever.

    • Christina

      Word J. Ivanek is wonderful.

    • Shannon

      Isn’t that the truth! I was not happy last year to see they hired William Hurt for the season. His “acting” style never changes in anything he does.

  • Nate

    Very exciting news. He is awesome. And how exactly was William Hurt an MVP on Damages? He sucked the life out of every scene he was in!

  • BScott

    Mr. Scott is a really good actor with a low profile. I believe this will allow a much more enjoyable viewer experience because there will be fewer comparisions with previous characters he has played. I think this is an excellent choice for Damages.

    Wow – Campbell Scott is soooo great. So underused in Royal Pains, he should be able to do both easily if he wants. Just watched The Spanish Prisoner…Dying Young is next…lol….

  • chrisjozo

    I wonder if he will be playing Ellen’s new boss?

  • Kelly

    I really like him on Royal Pains. I hope this doesn’t mean he is off that show.

  • Thad

    LOVE Campbell Scott. Not a bad choice at all.
