Uh-oh: The relationship between Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty) is about to get a little more complicated.
Better Off Ted actor Jay Harrington joins Suits for two episodes this season. He’ll portray one of Donna’s old flames, Mark Meadows.
Show creator Aaron Korsh told The Hollywood Reporter in a new interview that the actor’s appearance was discussed for many years.
“Often [Harrington] was unavailable,” Korsh told the publication. He elaborated that the role of Meadows required an actor “who can be charming, can be handsome, and someone who can be a challenge sexually with Harvey for Donna.”
While Harrington originally was up for the role of Tommy Bratton (which eventually went to Al Sapienza), Korsh thinks this part was a better fit for the star.
“Sometimes you end up landing in the role that you should,” Korsh said.
