As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Rifkin will play Isaac, an imposing rabbi who crosses paths with Kiefer Sutherland‘s Martin Bohm in some assuredly complicated way. Isaac is described as a believer in destiny and is a man clothed in a black suit, a tallit shawl with gold tzitzit of gold, and a gold yarmulke.
Rifkin, who most recently was seen as Marvin Exley in several episodes of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” also co-starred as Saul Holden on “Brothers & Sisters.” He is one of several announced guest stars for the upcoming season of “Touch,” including D.B. Sweeney, Maria Bello, Lukas Haas and Mykelti Williamson.
“Touch” Season 2 debuts after a long hiatus on Friday, Feb. 8 on FOX.
