Brooke Smith, who played Dr. Erica Hahn for four seasons on the ABC medical drama from Shonda Rhimes, will recur on Ray, playing Frances -- the nurse and potential love interest for Ray's brother, Terry (Marsan), who is struggling with Parkinson's disease.

Silence of the Lambs actress Smith's credits include USA Network's upcoming Graceland, American Horror Story: Asylum, Weeds and features Fair Game and Bad Company. She's repped by IFA Talent, Barking Dog Entertainment and Peikoff Law.

Showtime will move Dexter up to a spring premiere June 30 and use the Michael C. Hall-Jennifer Carpenter starrer to launch Ray Donovan, which premieres the same night at 10 p.m.
