Susan Sarandon joins Showtime’s Ray Donovan
Showtime announced today that Oscar winner and four-time Emmy-nominated actress Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise, Dead Man Walking) will appear on the hit drama series Ray Donovan in a season-long guest arc. Sarandon is set to play Samantha Winslow, the strong, focused head of a motion picture studio when the series returns for its fifth season this summer. She can be seen now on FX’s FEUD: Bette and Joan as Bette Davis.
Ray Donovan stars Liev Schreiber in his three-time Golden Globe and two-time Emmy nominated role as L.A.’s best professional fixer – the man called in to make the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes and business moguls’ most complicated and combustible situations go away. Jon Voight also stars in his two-time Emmy nominated and Golden Globe-winning role as Mickey Donovan, Ray’s ex-con father from South Boston. Rounding out the series cast are Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, Katherine Moennig, Pooch Hall, Kerris Dorsey and Devon Bagby.
A Showtime production, Ray Donovan is executive produced by David Hollander, Mark Gordon, Bryan Zuriff and Lou Fusaro and was created by Ann Biderman. One of the top-rated dramas of the summer, the series averaged 5.1 million viewers across platforms in season four.
