James Woods Will Recur On Showtime's Ray Donovan
I never thought there might be a world where Shark’s James Woods would get to be in a program with X-Men Origins: Wolverine actor Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight. However, Showtime has created that world with Ray Donovan and I am very pleased the subscription cable network is bringing its project to series so fans of those heavy-hitting actors will get to see it. Woods has signed on to Ray Donovan to play a man with ties to the Donovan family in a recurring role.
Showtime’s upcoming drama follows Ray, a hardworking individual who lives for making prominent people’s problems disappear into thin air, whether that means keeping celebrity names out of the paper or fixing issues before they become legal problems. Schreiber’s Mr. Fix It may be good at dealing with stranger’s problems, but he’s terrible when it comes to dealing with his own. According to Deadline, Woods is signed on as someone who might be causing a headache for Ray. The veteran actor will play Sully, a rough and tumble man from South Boston who the outlet says has a “complicated history” with Ray’s family, and more likely Ray’s father (Voight), who only recently got out of prison.
We first heard about Ray Donovan way back in 2011. It took a while to get the project out of the gate, and despite some comparison to Michael Clayton (any fixer character would probably get that), the previews and extended trailer for Showtime’s new series have been nothing short of satisfying. Ray Donovan is set to premiere this summer on June 30 and will run through the summer alongside Dexter.
