Hank Azaria is returning to Showtime.

The Emmy-winning actor is joining the drama series Ray Donovan in a major multi-episode arc in the show’s second season. Azaria will play James Cochran, the ambitious head of the Los Angeles FBI bureau who causes trouble for professional fixer Ray (Liev Schreiber).

In addition to doing voice talent on The Simpsons for the past couple decades, Azaria previously starred in Showtime’s 2004 series Huff and recently resumed his role as Gargamel in The Smurfs 2. Ray Donovan returns for 12 episodes this summer.
