TVLine has exclusively learned that the Jericho alumna — who currently recurs on ABC Family’s The Nine of Lives of Chloe King — will guest-star on an upcoming episode of the dramedy as Alexandra Leeds, a woman from Harvey’s (played by Gabriel Macht) past who suddenly appears to stir up some big trouble for the legal eagle.

  • As long as we don’t see Trevor anymore, I’m good. That storyline is terrible.

    • I am so with you on that one! Love the show – hate the Trevor storyline.

      • The Trevor storyline was necessary to add some spice to the USA forumla. It helped create a edgy background which I think helps add some dimension to the characters. Was it well executed? No, it could have been better.

      • they couldn’t make trevor disapear just like that, i think they handled it very well. As for Miss Copola hapy to know she is a regular on Common Laws she and Elay are the reasons i will tune in and also i hear Copolla is Elay’s Ex on that show… interesting!!!

  • Whenever I see Alicia Coppola, I remember that she played a cannibal/murderer on CSI one time. I’d really like to forget that.

    • Well, I still think of Rick Hoffman as Alan Foss from that one episode of “Leverage.”

      Really enjoying “Suits” so far. Thursday nights on USA are awesome. “Burn Notice” and “Suits” back-to-back.

  • Suits is my favorite show right now. But i have to agree the trevor-storyline was well thought but badly executed.

  • Totally agree on no more Trevor storyline. Really loving Suits though! I remember Alicia Coppola on NCIS, she’s quite a versatile actor. Can’t wait to see what she does on Suits. :) Keep scooping us on Suits, thanks!

  • Good for her. I’ve always liked her ever since she guest starred on JAG.

  • This show is a new favorite!

  • This should be fun! Alicia Coppola has always played strong, take-no-bull women on the shows I’ve seen her in; it would be entertaining to watch her throw Harvey off his game a little (and watch Mike watch Harvey get thrown). Any opportunity to delve into Harvey’s backstory should prove interesting.
    Thanks for the “Suits” scoop – this show is up there with “White Collar” as one of my favorite summer/USA series!

  • If my memory serves me correctly, she is also a General Hospital alum. Am I correct?

  • Thanks for the scoop. I’ve always liked her.

    “Suits” is also my new favorite show, and Harvey’s my new summer crush. Can’t wait for 9c tonight!

  • I Love Alicia, she was great in Jericho and got to meet her in LA at a Jericho fan reunion, I’m in love with this beautiful talented woman.

  • isn’t she supposed to be playing micael ealy’s ex wife or something, so i would have expected her to be a regular not just a recurring character anyway, we know recurring characters who apears in so many epiosdes of some USA network TV shows LOL

  • i am pretty sure she is the ex wife of one the two cops and she slept with other one, so now those cops can’t stand each other… preditible!
