Showtime’s drama Ray Donovan has picked up a popular actor from The Wire to recur in season 2.

Wendell Pierce, who played Det. Moreland on HBO drama, will guest star as Mr. Keith, which the net describes as a “down on his luck parole officer who gets a payoff from Ray (Liev Schreiber). Most recently, Pierce starred on NBC’s The Michael J. Fox Show, which is not expected to earn a second season pickup.

Production on the second season of Ray Donovan, which also stars Jon Voight, is currently underway in Los Angeles to prepare for a summer premiere. Other actors joining the series this season are Hank Azaria, Sherilyn Fenn and Vinessa Shaw.
