The first actor from the canceled Fox staple "House" to line up a new television role will be on a Showtime drama, reports Deadline.com. "House" co-star Peter Jacobson has signed on for a role in the upcoming "Ray Donovan," the story reports.
Jacobson will have a recurring role in the Showtime project if it gets past the pilot stage. The show stars Liev Schreiber as "fixer" Ray, who can make problems go away, the story notes. Jacobson will play Lee Drexler, a wheeler and dealer who taps Ray whenever his clients get into trouble, the piece adds.
