Review: Jon Voight and Liev Schreiber Do Battle On Showtime’s Ray Donovan


Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber) is a fixer.  He’s the guy a celeb calls when they are getting stalked, wake up with a dead one-night-stand in their bed, or have a transgendered hooker attempting to blackmail them.  The most powerful athletes, actors, musicians, and lawyers of Los Angeles depend on Ray.
 
While Ray’s got his work life handled, his personal life is another story.  He is the patriarch of a family of Boston transplants living in Hollywood.  Ray’s disgruntled wife, Abby (Paula Malcomson), wants to move to a nicer neighborhood, so their two teenagers’ can attend better schools.
