Casting News - July 2, 2015

FOX's Empire & Rosewood; Hulu's The Way; and Showtime's Ray Donovan & Masters of Sex.

  • The premium cable network has released the third season premieres for both Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex ahead of their July 12 debut. The episodes are available online, on the Showtime app and On Demand.
  • Rockmond Dunbar (The Mentalist, Sons of Anarchy) will co-star opposite Aaron Paul and Michelle Monaghan on the upcoming drama series. He will play Detective Abe Gaines, a thorough FBI investigator who seems to be the only agent suspicious of the mysterious religious sect that recently responded to a natural disaster.
  • Oscar winner Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny) has been cast in a major recurring role on the drama's upcoming second season. She will play Mimi Whiteman, a demanding venture capitalist who becomes involved in the Lyon family drama. A Forbes list billionaire, Mimi is a lover of hip hop music, social trends, high-end fashion and beautiful women.
  • Domenick Lombardozzi (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire) has joined the upcoming drama as a new series regular. He will play Captain Ira Hornstock, an excellent police captain who is terrible at managing his own life. He basically lives in his office because he is afraid of going home - three ex-wives (soon to be four) and seven kids - but his work is no reprieve from stress either. He can't stand Rosewood's (Morris Chestnut) big personality and sunny disposition, but acknowledges his stellar contributions to the department.
