Kiefer Sutherland officially signed on for the Tim Kring’s Touch pilot yesterday and Futon Critic has some more information on his character.
TOUCH (FOX) – Kiefer Sutherland has officially boarded the drama pilot, which will now film in late May or early June for midseason consideration by the network. He’ll play Martin Bohm in the project – an unassuming baggage handler at JFK who discovers that his autistic, mute son can predict events before they happen – as well as executive produce. The delayed production start is due to Sutherland’s commitment to Jason Miller’s revival of “That Championship Season” on Broadway, which opened last week. Charles McDougall is in talks to direct the 20th Century Fox Television-based hour, which comes from creator Tim Kring.
