TVLine Items: Tate Donovan's Sex-y Role, Key & Peele Return Date and More

Tate Donovan Masters of Sex

Tate Donovan wants to talk about Sex — with Allison Janney, specifically.

The Damages actor will guest-star on Masters of Sex‘s third season, appearing in two episodes as a love interest for Janney’s returning Margaret Scully. Donovan’s Graham is a confident scientist whose relationship with Margaret brings them to Masters and Johnson’s clinic.

Season 3 of Sex — bowing Sunday, July 12 at 10/9c — jumps ahead to 1966, when Masters and Johnson deal with the glare of the national spotlight as their sex study is finally unveiled.

Donovan’s recent TV credits include 24: Live Another Day, Hostages and Deception.

    Tate Donovan was great as President Heller’s Chief of Staff on 24: Live Another Day. Think Alfonso Ribeiro should do a great job as he takes over the reins of Tom Bergeron as the new host of AFV. Wonder if he’s going to do the CARLTON DANCE when he’s hosting.

    What about ‘Nathan for You’ on Comedy Central? I love that show!

    So when will we get word on whether Preacher is going to series?
