Susan Sarandon on Board for ‘Ray Donovan’ Season Five

Actress Susan Sarandon will appear in the Showtime series Ray Donovan in a season-long guest arc, the network said.

Sarandon, an Oscar winner for the 1996 film Dead Man Walking, will play Samantha Winslow, the head of a motion picture studio, in the fifth season of Ray Donovan, which begins this summer. The series averaged 5.1 million viewers across platforms in season four.

Sarandon’s five Oscar nominations for lead actress are exceeded by only eight people in history (including Bette Davis, whom Sarandon plays in the limited series Feud, pictured). Her notable film work also includes Bull Durham, Thelma and Louise, Lorenzo’s Oil and Atlantic City.

Ray Donovan stars Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight. Read more at
