Pope will guest-star as Tara Messer, a commercial architect Louis (Rick Hoffman) brings in to intervene when he can no longer deal with new character Stu Buzzini (Ian Reed Kesler), an insufferable Wall Street trader, and his colleagues. We are here to see Sam McPherson get Litt up!
Pope, who has appeared on 24, The Tomorrow People and Californication, is the latest actor to join the show as Jessica (Gina Torres) et al. try to rebuild Pearson Specter Litt after all the partners defected in the Season 5 finale.
Besides Pope and Kesler, Season 6 will also feature L.A. Law's Alan Rosenberg as William Sutter, a Wall Street player who comes under scrutiny from the SEC; Malcolm Gets (Caroline in the City) as Rachel's (Meghan Markle) ethics teacher Professor Dunbar; and David Hewlett (Stargate SG-1) as Nathan Byrnes, an energy sector CEO who has been dying for Harvey (Gabriel Macht) to represent him for years.
Curiously, none of the new faces are Mike's (Patrick J. Adams) fellow inmates in prison (yet). Lest we forget, he accepted a two-year prison deal in the finale, and creator Aaron Korsh says our favorite fraud is staying put.
Season 6 of Suits premieres Wednesday, July 13 at 9/8c on USA. Pope will make her first appearance in the fourth episode.
