Showtime’s ‘Ray Donovan’ Adds James Woods
Long before Showtime’s fixer drama ‘Ray Donovan‘ debuts even a single episode on June 30, it’s packing some hefty star power. Not only does Liev Schreiber lead an ensemble that features the likes of Jon Voight, but movie star and former ‘Shark’ James Woods is getting in on the series as well. The pay-cable network has tapped Woods for a recurring role on the buzz-worthy series, but with a focus on Hollywood, will he play himself, a la ‘Family Guy‘?
We were already on board with Showtime’s upcoming drama ‘Ray Donovan’ (particularly since its debut moved up the ‘Dexter‘ season 8 premiere to June 30), but its latest addition could be the biggest yet. Deadline reports that upcoming ‘jOBS‘ star James Woods has joined the Showtime drama in a recurring role as Patrick “Sully” Sullivan, said to have a complicated history with the Donovan family
‘Ray Donovan’ stars Liev Schrieber in his first regular TV role as a contemporary Los Angeles “trouble shooter” and “fixer” working for the city’s elite. The series’ all-star cast includes Jon Voight as the ex-con Donovan clan patriarch and Elliot Gould as Ray’s long-time client and mentor, along with Eddie Marsan and Dash Mihok, who will play Ray’s brothers, and Paula Malcomson (‘The Hunger Games‘) in the role of Ray’s wife.
