Peter Jacobson

Less than two weeks after Fox announced that this would be the final season of House, Peter Jacobson has already signed on to recur on Showtime's Ray Donovan pilot, Deadline reports.

House pulls the plug after eight seasons

Ray Donovan stars Liev Schreiber as Los Angeles' best professional troubleshooter who can make anyone anyone's problems disappear, except those of his own family. Jacobson, who portrayed Dr. Chris Taub on House, will play Lee Drexler, a foul-mouthed cohort who relies on Ray whenever his high-profile clients get into a jam.

As previously announced, Paula Malcomson, Jon Voight and Elliott Gould will also star.

The project comes from Southland creator Ann Biderman, who will executive-produce along with Mark Gordon (Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds) and Bryan Zuriff.
