Actress Ann-Margret has joined the guest cast of season two of "Ray Donovan," which premieres during the summer of 2014, according to a Feb. 24, 2014 media announcement emailed by Showtime Network. Ann-Margret should bring some womanly sex-appeal to the show, which has been heavy on masculine machismo but short on feminine allure.
Production on "Ray Donovan's" upcoming season of 12 episodes is currently underway in Los Angeles and is set to premiere on Showtime during the summer of 2014.
"Ray Donovan" is anchored by series leads Liev Schreiber, as profession fixer Ray Donovan, and Jon Voight, as his toxic father Mickey Donovan. Voight won the Golden Globe Award for his portrayal the narcissistic tough guy who showed up in Hollywood after his release from prison, only to complicate life for Ray and his family.
Emmy-winning and Oscar–nominated actress Ann-Margret ("Tommy," Law & Order: SVU") will guest star in a recurring role as ever-beautiful actress June Wilson, a major star back in her day who has a past with Ray’s sometimes boss Ezra Goldman ("Elliott Gould"), who is now a widower.
Ann-Margret joins an impressive list of guest stars this season including Hank Azaria, Wendell Pierce, Sherilyn Fenn, Vinessa Shaw and Kip Pardue.
Hank Azaria will play a major role as James Cochran, the head honcho at the FBI in Los Angeles, who becomes a thorne in Ray's side. Actress Sherilyn Fenn will guest star as Cochran's frumpy wife, Holly Cochran.
Wendell Pierce will play Mr. Keith, a down on his luck parole officer who gets a payoff from Ray.
The cast of "Ray Donovan" also includes Paula Malcomson ("Hunger Games") as Abby Donovan; Eddie Marsan ("Sherlock Holmes) as Eddie Marson; Dash Mihok ("I Am Legend"); Steven Bauer ("Breaking Bad"); Katherine Moennig ("The L Word"); Pooch Hall ("The Game"); Kerris Dorsey and Devon Bagby.
