Liev Schreiber was asked if he was interested in playing the eponymous fixer again at a masterclass at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival on Sunday. His answer should instill hope among the shows' most prominent fans.
Schreiber said that he would think about it.
The actor described his choice of rebringing Ray Donovan as above his pay pay grade, but said that the show's brass has a lot of interest.
he said: "It was always [Showtime CEO] David Nevins baby. I know he loves this character and this story, and I wouldnt be surprised if David hears it more.
Schreiber recalled that his decision to do the show was an opportunistic one at the beginning, as he and his ex-partner Naomi Watts were looking for an excuse to settle down and raise their children in one place. A steady job on a TV show sembled a straightforward procedure.
Naomi was a bigger star than mine, and we were traveling all over the world with our children, he said. But they were becoming bigger and they needed to go to school and live in one place. I decided to get a job there, which would be really long.
That said, the actor quickly developed to enjoy certain aspects of the program, particularly the extent to which he was able to work behind the scenes.
I thought it would be good to be working in front of the cameras every day. And it was for a while.
While Schreiber is the first to admit that the beloved show eventually felt like nothing more than a task to him, he admits that he was moved to learn how passionate fans were about it. Their devotion bolsters his desire to be revived.
