Liev Schreiber has signed on to the Showtime pilot Ray Donovan.

The X-Men Origins: Wolverine star will portray the titular character in the pilot, which centres on a man who fixes off-the-record problems for the rich and famous in Hollywood.

It is only the actor's second television role. He previously appeared in a four-episode arc for CSI in 2007.

"I hadn't done any television, not because I was against television, but mostly I was afraid of the contracts," he said at the time. "I have kind of a two-month attention span and I figured if I get locked into one of those, I would be dead."

The pilot will begin production early next year.

In October, Schreiber denied claims that he had cheated on partner Naomie Watts with a swimwear model.

Over the summer, the actor signed up to play a cheating husband in the upcoming film Mental.
