Jon Voight and Elliott Gould will join the cast of the drama pilot Ray Donovan, the Liev Schreiber starrer that’s in development for Showtime. It’s about a “professional trouble shooter” in Los Angeles named Ray (Schreiber) who’s replied upon to solve the complicated, confidential and controversial problems of the city’s elite.
Voight will play Ray’s father Mickey Donovan, a “newly freed ex-convict who heads to Los Angeles with suspicious intentions to reconnect with his estranged family.” Gould will portray a recurring guest star named Ezra Goodman, a senior partner at a law firm who also serves as Ray’s mentor and confidante.
The drama pilot is from Ann Biderman (Southland). Production is set to begin soon in Los Angeles.
