LIEV SCHREIBER "FIXES" HIS SIGHTS ON RAY DONOVAN

New SHOWTIME Pilot to Begin Production in 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA (December 5th, 2011) - Multitalented actor Liev Schreiber has been cast in the title role in the SHOWTIME pilot RAY DONOVAN, a drama set in Hollywood, California. Production will begin in Los Angeles in early 2012. RAY DONOVAN is a SHOWTIME production and is created by Southland creator Ann Biderman. Biderman, Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff will executive produce.

Ray Donovan is Hollywood's best professional "fixer." He's the one called in to solve the complicated, confidential and controversial problems of the city's elite. He can make anyone's problem disappear, except the ones created by his own family. The series, which has comedic undertones, will take a novelistic look at contemporary Los Angeles.

Considered one of the finest actors of his generation, Liev Schreiber's repertoire of resonant, humanistic and oftentimes gritty portrayals have garnered him praise in film, theatre and television. Schreiber recently completed production on P.J. Hogan's comedy Mental alongside Toni Collette and will next star in Mira Nair's thriller The Reluctant Fundamentalist opposite Kate Hudson and Kiefer Sutherland. Schreiber will also be seen in Goon with Jay Baruchel and Seann William Scott.

Schreiber's many feature credits include Salt with Angelina Jolie; X-Men Origins: Wolverine; Defiance with Daniel Craig; Repo Men; The Painted Veil; The Manchurian Candidate opposite Meryl Streep and Denzel Washington; The Sum of All Fears; Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock; Kate & Leopold; Every Day; Michael Almereyda's Hamlet; Spring Forward; The Hurricane; A Walk on the Moon with Diane Lane; The Daytrippers; Nora Ephron's Mixed Nuts; and Wes Craven's Scream trilogy.

His portrayal of Orson Welles in Benjamin Ross' "RKO 281" brought Schreiber Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominations. His other telefilm credits include George C. Wolfe's "Lackawanna Blues" and John Erman's "The Sunshine Boys", opposite Woody Allen and Peter Falk. As one of the documentary medium's foremost narrators, he has lent his voice to such works as "Mantle", ":03 from Gold", "A City on Fire: The Story of the '68 Detroit Tigers", "Nova", and "Nature".

Last year, Schreiber received his third Tony nomination for his role in Arthur Miller's "A View from the Bridge" alongside Scarlett Johansson. His performance as Ricky Roma in the 2005 Broadway revival of David Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross", directed by Joe Mantello, earned him his first Tony Award. He was again a Tony nominee for his portrayal of Barry Champlain in the 2007 Broadway revival of Eric Bogosian's "Talk Radio", directed by Robert Falls, Other stage work includes the Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park production of "Macbeth", in the lead role opposite Jennifer Ehle, directed by Mois�s Kaufman; "Iago"; "Hamlet"; "Henry the V"; and "Cymbeline".

In 2005, Schreiber made his feature directorial debut with Everything is Illuminated, which he also adapted from Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling novel of the same name. The film, starring Elijah Wood and Eugene Hutz, was named one of the year's 10 Best by the National Board of Review.
