    Who is the featured actor as Harvey’s temp secretary. He rearranges the files and has this huge floral arrangement put on Harvey’s desk? Where have I seen him before? Episode title is “All In” I think. July 26th. Send reply if you know. Credits too small to read on screen even on freeze frame. Thanks.
