A hardcase detective from Southland is coming to Fox’s big new Kiefer Sutherland drama.

Roxana Brusso has joined the Touch cast in a recurring role as Sheri, a tough, former biker with a heart of gold. She’s the director and physical therapist at a facility that cares for Jake — the mysteriously gifted son of Sutherland’s single father character. In addition to playing Detective Alicia Fernandez on Southland, Brusso had a role on ABC’s Dirty Sexy Money.

Touch is from Heroes creator Tim Kring and it was considered one of the strongest drama scripts around during pilot season. The show will premiere this spring on Fox. (The network hasn’t released most of its midseason dates yet — wonder which slot on the schedule Touch will get?) For those who missed it the first time around, here’s the Touch trailer.
