Katie Holmes returning to TV with big Showtime role
Katie Holmes is returning to TV to join the third season of Showtime’s Ray Donovan.
Marking her first major series commitment since her breakthrough role on teen drama Dawson’s Creek, Holmes is set to appear in a season-long arc as a “shrewd and chic businesswoman and the daughter of a billionaire producer (played by another recent major hire for the drama series — acclaimed actor Ian McShane) who enlists fixer Ray’s (Liev Schreiber) services.
Holmes had a small-screen role in the 2011 cable miniseries The Kennedys and is known for film roles like The Ice Storm and Batman Begins. Ray Donovan is now Showtime’s second most-watched series after Homeland and is expected to return this summer.
