In Season 3 of Showtime’s drama RAY DONOVAN, Sundays at 9 PM, things may finally be looking up for Dash Mihok’s character Brendan “Bunchy” Donovan.

This year, Bunchy has had awakenings on several fronts, to the point that he may be getting married – if events don’t conspire to keep him from getting to the church on time. Mihok (pronounced MY-hock), […]Read On »

In Showtime’s RAY DONOVAN, now in its second season Sundays at 9 PM and renewed for a third, Liev Schreiber stars as the title character. Ray is a Boston-born Hollywood “fixer” who is okay with using blackmail and violence on behalf of his clients. But the turmoil of Ray’s job is nothing compared with his family conflicts. He and wife Abby (Paula Malcomson) have both had affairs, their two teenaged children (Kerris Dorsey, Devon Bagby) are in rebellion and Ray’s brothers (played by Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok and Pooch Hall) all alternately depend on and resent their oldest sibling’s take-charge […]Read On »

On Showtime’s RAY DONOVAN, Sundays at 10 PM, Liev Schreiber plays the title character, a Hollywood fixer who has brought his wife (Paula Malcomson) and kids (Kerris Dorsey as daughter Bridget, Devin Bagby as son Conor).

Ray’s brother Terry (Eddie Marsan) is a boxing trainer coping with Parkinson’s, while Bunchy (Dash Mihok) has a drug problem, stemming from the fact that, as a child, he […]Read On »

On Showtime’s RAY DONOVAN, now in its first season Sundays at 10 PM and already renewed for Season 2, Liev Schreiber’s title character is a professional fixer. If you can pay his fee, he can take care of that cocaine bust or the dead prostitute in the bed. However, even Ray can’t find a fix for his father Mickey, played by Jon Voight. Mickey has just gotten out of prison after serving time for murder and he insists on getting back into the lives of his sons, much to the fury of distrustful Ray. Voight, a New York native and […]Read On »

On July 29th a big party was held by CBS/The CW/Showtime for the Television Critics Annual Summer Press Tour at The Event, which is actually the upper parking lot where the department store Robinson’s/May in Beverly Hills used to be. Taking pictures before heading inside it was quite a turnout of stars from the three networks of their new shows and returning shows of the three networks CBS, The CW and Showtime. I probably missed a few as I went in as soon as the cast from the CW new show THE ORIGINALS, a spin-off from THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES walked […]Read On »
