The 4400‘s Chad Faust has landed a recurring role on Fox’s first-rate new fall drama Lone Star, sources confirm to me exclusively.
Faust will play Harrison, the roguish ex-husband of Adrianne Palicki’s Cat Thatcher. Per the official character description, Harrison is “her mistake carried over from high school. What was charming about him at seventeen is less than attractive in a grown man with adult responsibilities that until now, he has not wanted to shoulder. But his motorcycle-riding, noncommittal, unfaithful-husband ways are behind him, or so he claims, and he’s back in town now, ready to prove that he’s changed.”
Lone Star—which stars up-and-comer James Wolk as a con man juggling two lives and wives (one of whom is Palicki’s aforementioned Cat)—premieres Monday, Sept. 20. The cast also includes David Keith, Jon Voight, and Eloise Mumford.
