According to Live Schreiber, things are going to be looking down before they look up for his character on the hit Showtime series Ray Donovan.
In a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Liev opens up about Ray’s future as Hollywood’s most prominent fixer.
He told the publication, “Things are worse this season in a really dramatic way that I can’t give away. But more than anything what I wanted was a coherent arc throughout the whole season that would feel satisfying to the audience and to us as actors, filmmakers, and writers to deliver. I think we’ve finally done it.”
Liev also confirmed what we’ve been saying for a long time: Ray is a man of extremes. He also says that viewers have a lot of misconceptions about his character.
I think he’s this extraordinarily sensitive person, but in reality, he’s too afraid to express himself,” Liev said, adding. “There’s this perception of Ray as a tough guy whether or not that’s true he is probably the most sensitive character I’ve ever played. But I think he’s afraid to show that. That suppressed tension is a really difficult thing to play.”

Ray also says that he’s pretty sure there are some real-life Hollywood fixers just like Ray Donovan out there. But according to the actor, they are called attorneys!
