SHOWTIME® PILOT RAY DONOVAN CASTS ACTORS Eddie Marsan AND Dash Mihok IN KEY ROLES
Production To Begin in Early 2012
LOS ANGELES, CA (January 26, 2012) – The SHOWTIME drama pilot RAY DONOVAN, starring Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee Liev Schreiber, has cast the roles of Ray’s brothers, with actors Eddie Marsan and Dash Mihok. They join a growing cast that recently added Paula Malcomson (“The Hunger Games,” “Deadwood,” “Sons of Anarchy”) in the role of Ray’s wife, Abby.
Ray Donovan is Hollywood’s best professional “fixer.” He’s the one called in to solve the complicated, confidential and controversial problems of the city’s elite. He can make anyone’s problem disappear, except the ones created by his own family. The series, which has comedic undertones, will take a novelistic look at contemporary Los Angeles. RAY DONOVAN is a SHOWTIME production and is created and executive produced by Ann Biderman (“Southland”). Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff will also serve as executive producers. Production will begin in Los Angeles in early 2012.
Award-winning British actor Eddie Marsan (pictured, top left) joins the cast in the role of Terry, Ray Donovan’s brother. Terry is a skilled former boxer who despite his Parkinson’s diagnosis hasn’t lost his fighting spirit, and continues to train others in his gym. Marsan is best known for his work in feature and independent films including “Sherlock Holmes,” “War Horse,” “Mission Impossible III,” “Tyrannosaur,” “The Disappearance of Alice Creed” and “Happy-Go-Lucky.” He will appear in the upcoming anticipated films “Jack the Giant Killer” and “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
Dash Mihok (pictured, top right) has been cast in the role of Bunchy, Ray Donovan’s younger brother. A troubled alcoholic who is haunted after being sexually abused, Bunchy continues to struggle with sobriety despite the help of his two brothers. Mihok’s film credits include “Romeo + Juliet,” “I Am Legend,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” and “The Thin Red Line.” On television, Mihok appeared in a recurring role on “Prime Suspect,” as well as guest starring roles on “Grey’s Anatomy” and “The Good Wife.” He will next be seen in the David O’Russell film “The Silver Linings Playbook.”
