Here's the latest in new names being added to the casts of our favorite shows:

Touch--Kiefer Sutherland's post-blockbuster series is an ideal venue for reunions 24 (and, not surprisingly, ER) veterans. Latest case in point: D.B. Sweeney is reuniting with Sutherland via a recurring role Touch's season 2. Sweeney will play Tanner, described as a threatening, forceful ex-military guy who is an enforcer for Aster Corps. Touch will now premiere Feb. 8. Other additions to season 2 include Maria Bello, Frances Fisher, Lukas Haas, Saxon Sharbino, Greg Ellis, Said Taghmaoui, Adam Campbell and Ray Santiago.

Arrow--Here's a welcome face: Janina Gavankar (who plays the shapeshifter Luna on True Blood and was Leigh, the (ahem) heartless cop, on The Gates) has booked a multi-episode run on The CW's Arrow. Gavankar will play McKenna Hall, a Starling City PD vice cop who knew Oliver Queen back in his pre-island bad boy days.

Teen Wolf--With a plotline involving a pack of alpha wolves and no Jackson, season 3 of the hit MTV summer series will see a wolfpit full of hot new faces, including Max and Charlie Carver, Gideon Emery, Adelaide Kane, and Felisha Terrell. The Carver twins (most visible together on Desperate Housewives) are reported to be playing Aiden and Ethan, twin alpha werewolves who are "dangerous charmers with brilliant minds." Kane (Power Rangers R.P.M.) will be playing Cora, who has a mysterious past and has some connections to the Beacon Hills werewolves. Terrell will play Kali, an alpha werewolf who is described as both "sexy" and "ruthless." And Emery will be playing Deucalion, the leader of the new pack of alphas, described as having "an eloquent, cutting intelligence." Shooting for season 3 is just now under way.
