Katie Holmes Joins Ray Donovan for Major Season 3 Stint

It’s Showtime for Katie Holmes!

The Dawson’s Creek alum is joining Ray Donovan‘s upcoming third season in a “major” role, Showtime announced Tuesday.

Holmes will play shrewd and chic businesswoman Paige, the daughter of billionaire producer Andrew Finney (the just-cast Ian McShane), who enlists Ray’s services.

Holmes’ post-Dawson’s TV credits include stints on How I Met Your Mother, Eli Stone and the miniseries The Kennedys.

At the Television Critics Assoc. press tour earlier this month, Showtime president David Nevins teased that Ray Donovan‘s third season — its first without series creator Ann Biderman at the helm — will “get a little bit beyond the Donovan family.” (He wasn’t kidding.)

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    LOVE RayDonovan!

  2. Tran says:

    Happy to see Katie Holmes back on TV in a very long time. Who doesn’t like her dating back to the heydays of Dawson’s Creek? (cue the Paula Cole track I Don’t Want To Wait)

    Too bad it’s not Josh’s show The Affair. Lol

  4. Ray says:

    So she won’t be one of Ray’s “hooooores?”

  5. Jake says:

    Guess she has to make some money now! Oil of Olay ain’t cutting it.

      Indie films dont pay well and in the only studio film she has done recently, she played the mother in Giver, my guess a quality role on Ray Donovan is more enjoyable as an actor than playing the mother in a YA film.

      Ray Donovan just lost me I think Katie Holmes is a terrible actress and now the show is out.

    • CF98 says:

      Newsflash all actors have to make money look at Dianne Wiest from Oscar Winner to possibly homeless.

      Don’t get trashing someone over getting work.

      • jake says:

        Dianne Wiest is just that an Oscar Winner. What is Katie Holmes, oh ya the ex Mrs. Tom Cruise. There is nothing comparison.

        • CF98 says:

          So? She’s still a working actress and all actors need work. She got some good for her. Now if it bothers you then don’t watch?

  6. Tracy says:

    Oh no! Katie Holmes cannot act – why did they hire her?

  7. Avi says:

    Wow Katie Holmes? the ex-wife of Tom Cruise, who supposedly was involved with the real life Ray Donovan (Anthony Pellicano) during his divorce with Nicole Kidman? LOL was just doing some wiki research and thought this was pretty ironic.

  8. Carls Import Export says:

    Katie did allright with a nice settlement from Tom. She is eye candy and these days you only have to look good, remember ur parts and the hell with acting? The show hit a pothole with Ray’s boring ass misplaced, disfunctional family, from kids, wife, brothers, NEED another link to make the show work. Donovan is a beast and he needs to get a boost somehow, Katie can’t be any worse than his misfit wife? Never know, she might make it work…..
