Mickey Donovan is the deuteragonist of Ray Donovan. He is a gangster and ex-convict, who served 20 years in prison for a murder which he did not commit, and is the father of Ray, Bunchie, Terry, Bridget and Daryll.
Released from prison after a 20-year stint, Ray's neglectful and abusive father Mickey arrived in LA to get what he felt is his rightful due. As an ill-tempered ex-con, Mickey is nevertheless charismatic and charming. Mickey's desire to reunite with his family, and his participation in scams and scores both old and new, threatens to destroy everything Ray has built for himself.
