Ray Donovan Season 2: Can Ray Fix Himself?

On the second season of Showtime's Ray DonovanLiev Schreiber's titular Hollywood fixer will have to find a way to fix his biggest problem: himself.

The drama's first season dealt primarily with Ray's complicated history with his father Mickey (Jon Voight), whom Ray eventually tried to have killed by Sully Sullivan (James Woods), one of Mickey's old Boston rivals.

Exclusive: Michael J. Fox on His Return to Series Television

In his own words, the TV icon opens up about why he's turning his real life into a family sitcom, The Michael J. Fox Show.

I was feeling good that viewers accepted my characters and could distinguish them from me, for whatever brief amount of time. And then it just clicked with me that acting is what I do. It's what I like to do. So I'd better have a really good reason for not doing it.
