‘Suits’ enlists Jay Harrington for multiepisode arc
Los Angeles, Aug 11 PTI : The creators of the legal drama “Costumes” have made the actor Jay Harrington to feature in a multi-episode arc in the show.
The 45-year-old “Better Off Ted” actor will be seen starring Mark Meadows, Donna Paulson’s former boyfriend in two episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“We’ve been discussing Jay for many roles over the years, as our casting director, Bonnie Zane, knows I’m a big fan of” Better Off Ted “and other things. A few months ago, it was launched for the role of Tommy Bratton, but we ended up going with Al Sapienza, and a few weeks later we wrote the role of Mark Meadows and it was perfect.
“Someone in this age group can be charming, maybe beautiful and someone who can be a sexual challenge with Harvey for Donna,” commented Aaron Korsh.
The role brings back Harrington to the United States, where he participated in the short legal comedy “Benched” of 2014.
“Costumes” is currently in its seventh season.
