The OC star Tate Donovan has landed a guest starring role on the third season of Showtime’s period drama Masters Of Sex. He will play Graham, a confident scientist whose relationship with Margaret Scully brings him to Masters and Johnson’s clinic.
Donovan, who most recently starred as White House Chief Of Staff Mark Boudreau on Fox’s 12 episode event series 24: Live Another Day, is the latest high profile actor to book a guest role on Masters Of Sex. Other guest stars for the upcoming third season include Maggie Grace, Julie Ann Emery, Allison Janney and Josh Charles.
Based on Thomas Maier’s book, Masters of Sex follows the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality, William Masters and Virginia Johnson. The series chronicles the unusual lives, romance and pop culture trajectory of Masters and Johnson. Their research touched off the sexual revolution and took them from a mid-western teaching hospital in St. Louis to the cover of Time magazine. The drama series is produced by Sony Pictures Television and stars Michael Sheen, Lizzy Caplan, Caitlin Fitzgerald, Nicholas D’Agosto and Teddy Sears.
The show’s third season, which is set to premiere on Sunday July 12th at 10/9c. finds the famed duo of Masters (Michael Sheen) and Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) dealing with the glare of the national spotlight as their sex study is finally unveiled. It’s the start of the Sexual Revolution — and Masters and Johnson’s work will have a profound impact on contemporary relationships, especially their own evolving three-way “marriage” with Masters’ wife Libby (Caitlin FitzGerald).
