LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- U.S. actor John Goodman has landed a role on the legal drama "Damages," TVGuide.com reported.
The 58-year-old, former co-star of "Roseanne" is set to play the bad-guy, chief executive officer of a mysterious military contractor put on trial in a wrongful death suit on "Damages," which has moved from FX to DirectTV.
"John Goodman's phenomenal body of work speaks for itself. And we've been huge fans of his for years," Todd Kessler, "Damages" executive producer, told USA Today. "It's a real thrill to be adding an actor of John's extensive range and talent to the cast of 'Damages.' We can't wait to pit him against Glenn Close and Rose Byrne in our fourth season."
Season 4 of "Damages" is to begin airing this summer.
