Showtime’s crime drama “Ray Donovan” is about a moody South Boston “fixer” (portrayed by Liev Schreiber) who works for a LA law firm with powerful clients and has to deal with his estranged father Mickey (Jon Voight) who is unexpectedly released from prison. In Season 2, Ann-Margret will make a guest appearance as the “once-top actress” June Wilson, who shares a past with Ray’s boss Ezra Goldman (played by Elliott Gould).
Ray Donovan is written by Ann Biderman of cop show hall-of-famers Southland and NYPD Blue. When Variety asked her what makes for a good drama, she answered “Grab them by the throat and don’t let go.” She doesn’t worry about too much violence in the show. And she doesn’t worry about making sure there are enough female writers in the room. “I can’t stand that kind of affirmative action crap…I always just did what I wanted and figured I’m allowed to write about whatever the fuck I want to write about.”
