The sophomore season of Showtime's "Ray Donovan" continues to stock up on quality actors - Wendell Pierce, most recently of "Treme" and "The Michael J. Fox Show" (and of course, "The Wire") - is on-board in what the network is calling a recurring "guest" role. 

Per Showtime: Pierce will play Mr. Keith, a down on his luck parole officer who gets a payoff from Ray (Emmy and Golden GlobeĀ® Award nominee Liev Schreiber). Hank Azaria will be in the second season too.
