Suits Scoop: The Game Star Steps Off the Field
TVLine has learned that Hall will guest star on an episode of USA Network’s just-renewed legal dramedy as Jimmy, a lawyer at Pearson Hardman who is trying to make his way to partner by any means necessary.
In the episode airing this Thursday at 10/9c, rumors of a traitor within the firm begin to run rampant, so Jimmy jumps on the opportunity to fan the flames of paranoia among his fellow associates. “Jimmy wants [the partnership], and he wants it yesterday — even if it means sacrificing others,” Hall tells TVLine.
As of now, the guest spot is meant to be a one-off, but Hall enthusiastically offers, “One of the writers and the Suits showrunner told me that I did such a great job, they rewrote the ending with a possible chance of coming back. So I hope Jimmy returns. It’s cool to trade in shoulder pads and cleats for a nice Hugo Boss suit!”
Meanwhile, Hall will be back as a series regular for the fifth season of BET’s The Game, which returns in 2012.
