'Touch': Lukas Haas teases the 'fast-paced and suspenseful' second season and his new character

After getting its season 2 premiere pushed from fall to mid-season, Touch is finally back. The Fox show — about a father and his emotionally challenged but gifted son who has the ability to recognize patterns unseen by others — starts airing its second season tonight.

Along with the search for Lucy’s (Maria Bello) daughter, Touch‘s sophomore outing features the meet-up between Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) and Aster Corps brainiac Calvin Norburg, a new character played by Inception actor Lukas Haas, in his first series regular role.

EW talked with Haas about what fans can expect from the new season and his new character and also about two of his recent film projects, Lincoln and Steve Jobs biopic jOBS.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When did you first watch Touch, and what did you think of it?
LUKAS HAAS: I actually didn’t watch it until I had already started filming this season. I’m not a big TV-watcher, so I haven’t seen really anything. Everybody tells me to watch Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones and all these different shows. I haven’t seen any of them. When I saw [Touch], I actually thought it was very thoughtfully done and well-directed and beautifully shot. It seemed like a very substantial show that reminded me more of my idea of HBO or Showtime. It seemed to fall more in line with those kinds of shows than the ones I typically expect to see on network TV. READ FULL STORY

Fox shoves 'Touch' to midseason

Touch-Sutherland

Gordon Ramsay to the rescue.

The network getting Kitchen Nightmares back on the air on Oct. 26, serving as a lead-in for 9 p.m.’s Fringe. With Fox struggling in the ratings on Fridays  — X-Factor repeats currently fill the 8 p.m. slot — the move should help boost the night since Ramsay’s makeover show typically generates a relatively solid-ish number.

As part of this shakeup, the second season of Kiefer Sutherland’s Touch is getting pushed to January. Fox won’t yet say where on the schedule it will air. Meanwhile, Monday night’s The Mob Doctor continues to stay alive … for now.

Maria Bello joins Kiefer Sutherland's 'Touch'

Maria Bello is wasting no time hopping back on the TV train following the cancellation of her NBC drama Prime Suspect back in November.

EW has confirmed a Deadline report that the star is set to join Fox’s new Kiefer Sutherland drama series, Touch. She will play a mother whose daughter shares the same gift as the young main character (David Mazouz) in an upcoming multi-episode arc. Sutherland portrays Martin, the father of the young boy who can seemingly predict the future.

If the drama is picked up for a second season, Bello reportedly could become a series regular. Touch aired its second episode yesterday with a decent performance in ratings, with 11.7 million viewers and a 3.2 rating in the key 18-49 demo.

'Touch' preview ratings solid, 'American Idol' slips

Fox’s series premiere of Kiefer Sutherland’s Touch had a promising preview Wednesday night, but the second week of American Idol slipped.

Touch opened to 11.9 million viewers and a 3.9 rating in the adult demo, while its lead-in, Idol, had 19.5 million viewers and a 6.4 rating — down 14 percent from last week’s two-hour season premiere (though only down about 7 percent from last week’s 8 p.m. hour).

Touch marks the highest retention (on a percentage basis) of a drama debuting after Idol, and is the second-biggest premiere for a new drama this season. Also keep in mind Glee once delivered a somewhat unspectacular rating in its post-Idol preview, then eventually became a hit for the network. Touch doesn’t officially premiere until March.
