Last Lap: Who’s Joining Showtime’s Hit Series, Ray Donovan?

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last wishes are granted, Jada Pinkett Smith takes on a dark role, and we get to see what could’ve went down in Frozen.

  • Wendell Pierce, from The Wire and Treme fame, is set for a recurring role during the next season of Showtime’s Ray Donovan. We have no doubt he can hold his own against Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight, especially since he rocked during one of our Very VH1 Spreecasts! [Showtime]
  • Details of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s will have been released, with his partner, Mimi O’Donnell, in charge of his estate. The actor also stated his wishes for his son to only live near either New York City, Chicago, or San Francisco, so that he’s culturally enriched. With that, we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw little Cooper Hoffman become just as accomplished as his dad. [Huffington Post]
  • Jada Pinkett Smith will be playing a villain on Fox’s upcoming Batman-themed series, Gotham. And it looks like her character will be one of the influences that made the Penguin go crazy. [The A.V. Club]
  • Now that we’ve all fallen in love with Frozen, we get to see an exclusive deleted scene from the animated movie. Just know that things could have turned out completely different. [MTV News]
