Al and Trixie, together again!
Ray Donovan has tapped Ian McShane to join the Showtime drama’s upcoming third season, reuniting the actor with his onetime Deadwood leading lady Paula Malcomson, TVLine had learned exclusively.
McShane will play the recurring role of Malcolm Finney, a prominent movie producer and billionaire who hires Ray (Liev Schreiber) to get his family out of a potentially catastrophic situation.
It’s not known if McShane’s Malcolm will cross paths with Malcomson’s Abby, but a run-in or two seems inevitable given his connection to Ray.
McShane’s last major TV gig was an arc on FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum.
At the Television Critics Assoc. press tour earlier this month, Showtime president David Nevins teased that Ray Donovan‘s third season — its first without series creator Ann Biderman at the helm — will “get a little bit beyond the Donovan family.”
