She joins recently cast Hank Azaria and Sherilyn Fenn in the upcoming second season of the Mark Gordon Co-produced series. Ray Donovan stars Liev Schreiber as LA’s best professional fixer, the man called in to make the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls’ most complicated and combustible situations go away. Shaw is repped by ICM partners, Thruline Entertainment and attorney Gretchen Rush.
