Hollywood

Critically-acclaimed actor Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Treme) will guest star in a recurring role on the second season of the hit SHOWTIME drama series RAY DONOVAN. Pierce will play Mr. Keith, a down on his luck parole officer who gets a payoff from Ray (Liev Schreiber). Pierce joins previously announced guest stars Hank Azaria, along with actresses Sherilyn Fenn and Vinessa Shaw.  Production on the second season’s 12 episodes is currently underway in Los Angeles and is set for a summer premiere on SHOWTIME.

Wendell Pierce is an Emmy, Obie and Peabody Award-winning actor and Tony® Award-winning producer, most recognized for his portrayal of “Det. ‘Bunk’ Moreland” on the critically-acclaimed seriesThe Wire. He recently wrapped the fourth and final season of Treme, and appeared on The Michael J. Fox Show.  He also continues to host the Peabody Award-winning national radio program, Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Set in the sprawling mecca of the rich and famous, RAY DONOVAN stars Schreiber as LA’s best professional fixer, the man called in to make the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls’ most complicated and combustible situations go away. This powerful drama unfolds when his father, Mickey Donovan, played by Jon Voight in his Golden Globe-winning role, is unexpectedly released from prison, setting off a chain of events that shakes the Donovan family to its core.  The cast also includes Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, Katherine Moennig, Pooch Hall, Kerris Dorsey and Devon Bagby.

    Wow, this is great news. I’ve been a fan of Wendell’s for a very long time. I always considered him an under-rated and under-appreciated actor. However, since his time on the Wire, he’s been getting the recognition he deserves. It’s so good to see him getting his due. He’s a hard working actor and humanitarian. He’s been rebuilding his New Orleans neighborhood and bringing folks back home. I love this brother with a passion and wish him continued success.
