Rounding out the “Ray Donovan” cast are Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, Katherine Moennig, Pooch Hall, Kerris Dorsey and Devon Bagby. A Showtime production, “Ray Donovan” is executive produced by David Hollander, Mark Gordon, Bryan Zuriff and Lou Fusaro and was created by Ann Biderman.

Sarandon can currently be seen on the aforementioned “Feud,” where she plays Bette Davis opposite Jessica Lange’s Joan Crawford in a story of two aging stars struggling to break free of the patriarchal forces determined to control them. “When we started you were over by 40,” Sarandon told said at a lunch with reporters in February. “If you had kids you were no longer seen as sensual or sexy. That wasn’t just insinuated to me. That was told to me.”

Season 5 of “Ray Donovan” will premiere this summer on Showtime. Sarandon is repped by UTA.
