Ray SewardPlayed by Peter Sarsgaard
Ray Seward is a death row inmate, set to be executed in 30 days for the murder of his wife. He was born into poverty and crime, and was taught early (by his father and various stand-in father figures) that fear cannot exist inside a real man. He's a life-long convict who has been in and out of the system for various violent crimes since he was 10 years old. Resigned to die, although not quietly, Seward knows his end is near. But as the clock ticks down in his waning days, he's forced to confront his past and its secrets, and to reevaluate his definition of "a real man."
