The L.A. fixer series is back on July 12, and you don't want to miss what might be its strongest season yet. As my video review above says, a lot of the new strength of Ray Donovan's third season comes from the additions that bulk up the core cast – especially Katie Holmes. An unlikely pairing, the Dawson's Creek alum and leading man Liev Schreiber are a great match and inject new life into the already pretty healthy Showtime drama. Of course, Holmes isn't the only new… »
Anyone remember Party of Five? Exactly the same as Dawson’s Creek but without those homely qualities of a Katie Holmes or Michelle Williams. It aired on Channel Four in the Nineties, convincing Miramax producers that casting Neve Campbell in Scream was a good idea. Providing her with a means to pay the mortgage for twenty years and three subsequent sequels.
Initially championed by Wes Craven maker of original Nightmares on Elm Street. Scream was touted as a revisionist reinvention. That most post-modern of commodities known as the tongue in cheek slasher movie. A nudge, nudge, wink, wink wake up call for an outdated genre. Written by Kevin Williamson who went on to pen The Faculty for Robert Rodriguez, Scream is still heralded as a benchmark today. Spawning numerous copycat flicks including I Know What You Did Last Summer, »

The cast also includes Makenzie Moss (“Steve Jobs”) and Erik Laray Harvey (“Boardwalk Empire”). Producers are Sandra Siegal through her Siegal Entertainment banner and Mj Films’ Mark B. Johnson, who are re-teaming after working together previously on Katie Holmes’ comedy “Miss Meadows.”
Blue plays an accomplished British architect who finally achieves his dream of converting the long-abandoned Fairmont Meat Company slaughterhouse into ultramodern lofts. His family and tenants will be exposed to a decades-long mystery that cannot be covered up by the building’s high-tech makeover.
Velazquez portrays his wife and Moss plays the couple’s behaviorally-challenged young daughter. »

Ray Donovan Season 3 Promo 2. Showtime‘s Ray Donovan: Season 3 TV show trailer 2 star Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, and Katherine Moennig. Ray Donovan: Season 3’s plot synopsis: “Season three finds Ray adrift from his family and those closest to him, while he focuses on his business and desires to be his own boss. Meanwhile, his father Mickey (Jon Voight, in his Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role), who had narrowly escaped last season’s heist debacle, finds himself charting a similar course to build his own empire.”
This season looks like it will be good. I’ve seen the first episode (review coming soon) and can personally attest to the fact that the first episode is entertaining.

Ray Donovan: Season 3 Teaser Trailer & Poster: ‘California Dreamin’ [Showtime]
- Rollo Tomasi
Ray Donovan‘s Season 3 trailer has officially arrived, and Katie Holmes’ Paige Finney makes quite the first impression, as it appears that she and Ray will be spending quite a bit of time together this year, with the infamous fixer being tasked with keeping an eye on Paige by her father, Albert Finney (Deadwood‘s Ian McShane). However, I’m not so sure that Albert will end up being happy with just how close Ray and Paige appear to be getting in this trailer, and you’ll see what I mean around the 1:40 mark. Elsewhere in the trailer, Ray attempts to come up with a plan to get his brother Terry out of prison before he’s killed while inside, and even though he may end up surviving, things don’t look so good for Terry from what we’re shown. Also, Ray’s daughter Bridget urges him to come back home, »

Those Donovans, they aren't the establishment types.
The trailer for season 3 of "Ray Donovan" demonstrates that to be true for both the titular Hollywood fixer (Liev Schreiber) and his ex-con dad (Jon Voight), as they both go about their different ways of breaking the rules.
The trailer introduces the new characters played by Ian McShane and Katie Holmes for the major storyline of the season. McShane is Malcolm Finney, a billionaire movie producer who hires Ray to keep an eye on his kids while he retires and settles his affairs. Holmes is Malcolm's daughter, and a tough, cutthroat businesswoman who makes Ray her own deal - one he's mightily tempted by.
The other major storyline of the season features Ray's brother, Terry (Eddie Marsan), in prison. Both Ray and his dad want to get Terry out; the question is, whose tactics will serve Terry better?

Showtime has just released the full trailer for Ray Donovan Season 3, in which the titular Hollywood fixer, played by a reliably pickled Liev Schreiber, takes on a new client in the personage of Ian McShane's Malcolm Finney. The trailer focuses mainly on how Ray's relationship with Finney, including his daughter, Paige (Katie Holmes), leads to him to (yet again) reconsider his choice of profession. That doubt, per usual, becomes twice as potent when he gets involved with his father, Mickey (Jon Voight), who continues his own side of the dirty business at hand. The series seems to be building to another blowout between Ray and Mickey, as Malcolm Finney's line about happy families feels like a direct parallel with what the Donovan family has been weathering for the last two seasons.

Joey Potter, she’s not.
Ray Donovan‘s Season 3 trailer has hit the Interwebs and special guest star Katie Holmes makes a rather saucy first impression as shrewd, chic businesswoman Paige (the daughter of billionaire producer Andrew Finney, played by fellow special guest star Ian McShane).

Exclusive: “A good family business is not the same thing as a good family.” Here’s the first trailer for Season 3 of Showtime’s hit drama Ray Donovan, which sees Liev Schreiber as the Boston tough-turned-Hollywood fixer trying to rebuild his empire.

Does Tom Cruise have a crush on a 22-year old assistant who looks like Katie Holmes? Us Weekly revealed that Tom Cruise, 52 was crushing on his Mission: Impossible 5 set assistant and posted pictures of the 22-year-old brunette earlier. Emily was also seen by the side of the Top Gun star on set of Rogue Nation in London and now Star magazine picks up the rumor and again claimed the two are growing closer, though nothing is confirmed. Meanwhile 36-year old Katie Holmes would rather sleep than spend time doing her makeup. The 'Miss Meadows' star confessed she's developed a quick and easy beauty regime because she prefers to stay in bed in the morning. She said: "My schedule is pretty busy, so I've learned to do my makeup quickly because I prefer to sleep. I'll wait until the very last minute to wake up and get ready in about 20 minutes. »
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Shahi — who took leave from Poi to give birth to (and spend time with) twins — will appear in one episode as Hasmig, an Armenian pop star. The gig will also reunite Shahi with her former L Word co-star Katherine Moennig, who plays Ray’s assistant on the Showtime series.
Ray Donovan Season 3 bows Sunday, July 12, at 9/8c.

Can you imagine what kind of world we'd be living in today if Joey (Katie Holmes) picked Dawson (James Van Der Beek) instead of Pacey (Joshua Jackson)? Well, it almost happened. During the Dawson's Creek Writer's Room reunion panel at the 2015 Atx TV Festival, creator Kevin Williamson, who left the series after its second season and only returned to pen the two-hour series finale in 2003, revealed that Joey and Dawson almost ended up together. Whoa! While he originally envisioned Dawson, the series' angsty wannabe-filmmaker, and Joey, the girl next door, ending up together, halway through writing the finale Williamson realized that a happy ending for that couple wasn't "what the show was »
But Pacey bought her a wall! Dawson's Creek laid out the perfect TV love triangle, with viewers either Team Dawson or Team Pacey. But as it turns out, Joey Potter wasn't originally supposed to end up with Pacey Witter. That's right, the girl next door was close to ending the series in the arms of her Bff — Dawson Leery.

Kate Upton + bikini tops + radiant beachy makeup? We'd say Bobbi Brown's found a full-proof advertising method. The Sports Illustrated beauty is returning for her third stint as the face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics, this time fronting the brand's summer beauty campaign. For the Sandy Nudes Collection ad pics, the 22-year-old is drop-dead gorgeous in a cerulean bustier bikini top and—of course—her signature tousled, slicked back waves. As for her glowing skin, that's all courtesy of Bobbi Brown. Since replacing Katie Holmes as the brand's celebrity spokes model back in 2014, she's stared in a series of smoldering ads from sexy windblown shots to perfectly red-lipped candids. And »
