Uncle June’s back!
Beloved Sopranos curmudgeon Dominic Chianese has landed a multi-episode arc on Damages, sources confirm to me exclusively.
Chianese will play a shady associate of the Tobin family, the clan at the center of Patty’s new case. He’ll first appear in the sixth episode of the third season, which premieres Jan. 25.
In other Damages casting news, Craig Bierko (Boston Legal) has been tapped to play Terry Brooke, a character with ties to Frobisher (Ted Danson). He’ll also appear in multiple episodes.
Chianese and Bierko join an impressive season 3 ensemble that also includes new regulars Campbell Scott, Martin Short, and Lily Tomlin.
