NEW YORK – March 13, 2017 – Today, Showtime Networks announced that Oscar® winner and four-time Emmy®-nominated actress Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise, Dead Man Walking) will appear on the hit drama series RAY DONOVAN in a season-long guest arc. Sarandon will play Samantha Winslow, the strong, focused head of a motion picture studio. RAY DONOVAN returns for its fifth season this summer.

RAY DONOVAN stars Liev Schreiber in his three-time Golden Globe and two-time Emmy nominated role as L.A.’s best professional fixer – the man called in to make the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes and business moguls’ most complicated and combustible situations go away. Jon Voight also stars in his two-time Emmy nominated and Golden Globe-winning role as Mickey Donovan, Ray’s ex-con father from South Boston. 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. One of the top-rated dramas of the summer, the series averaged 5.1 million viewers across platforms in season four.

One of Hollywood’s most acclaimed actresses, Susan Sarandon brings her own brand of sex appeal and intelligence to every role – from her fearless portrayal in Bull Durham to her Oscar-nominated performances in Thelma and Louise, Lorenzo’s Oil, The Client and Atlantic City, and her Oscar- and SAG® Award-winning role in Dead Man Walking as Sister Helen, a nun consoling a death-row inmate. The hard-working actress has made a career of choosing diverse and challenging projects both in film and television, starting with her acting debut in the movie Joe, which she soon followed with the 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show.  Sarandon’s five Oscar nominations for lead actress is a total exceeded by only eight people in history (including Bette Davis, whom Sarandon plays in the limited seriesFeud). Overall, she has also received eight Golden Globe® and five SAG nominations. In 2010, she received her fourth Emmy nomination, for her work in Barry Levinson’s You Don’t Know Jack with Al Pacino, following a lead actress nomination in the film Bernard and Doris and two previous guest actress nominations in a comedy series (Friends, Malcolm in the Middle).
