Susan Sarandon has lined up another television project.

Showtime announced Monday the Oscar-winning actress has joined the cast of its Liev Schreiber-fronted crime drama Ray Donovan.

The Feud: Bette and Joan star will have a season-long guest arc across the series’ upcoming fifth season. She is set to play Samantha Winslow, a “strong, focused head of a motion picture studio,” according to a press release.

Primarily known for her work on the big screen, including starring turns in films like Stepmom, Thelma & Louise, Dead Man Walking, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sarandon has also earned recognition for her television endeavors; Since 2001, she has received four Emmy nominations for her work on HBO movies (2006’s Bernard and Doris, 2010’s You Don’t Know Jack) and popular series (she guest-starred on both Malcolm in the Middle and Friends) alike.

Since its 2013 premiere, Ray Donovan has earned seven Emmy nods, winning one in September for Hank Azaria’s season 4 guest spot.

Though an exact date has yet to be confirmed, Showtime indicates Ray Donovan — one of its most popular programs, averaging 5.1 million viewers across all platforms for season 4 — will return this summer.
