By

CANADA (Sasha Stoltz Publicity): Mykelti Williamson reunites with Kiefer Sutherland for a recurring role on FOX's Touch, which Sutherland is also executive producer.

The actor/director will play NYPD Detective Lang, who is describe as a "tough, seen it all" cop that goes by his gut instincts in order to solve his cases. So, will his character be on the trail of Martin Bohm (Sutherland) and his Jake, who are on the run from the Aster Corps, the organization that seeks to exploit Jake? After all, Williamson played relentless cop Philip Gerard on the short-lived remake of CBS' The Fugitive with Tim Daly as wrongly accused Dr. Richard Kimble.

Williamson was a regular on 24, where Sutherland spent eight long seasons ("Days") saving the world as maverick agent Jack Bauer. The actor had roles on NBC's Boomtown and Kidnapped, and CBS' CSI: NY, as well as on the big screen in Heat, Waiting to Exhale, Species II, Ali and Forrest Gump, where he earned rave reviews as Tom Hanks' Vietnam best friend Bubba.

Created and executive produced by Heroes creator Tim Kring, Touch follows Martin Bohm, a widowed father raising his son Jake, whose ability with numbers provides Martin the chance to not only help the people he meets, but also change the lives of others throughout the world.

Touch returns for its second season February 1 at 9pm on FOX; season one is available on DVD.
