Suits Retains SVU's Diane Neal to Defend Harvey, While Erinn Hayes Is His [Spoiler]!

The time to Suits up is near, as evidenced by mounting guest star news.

For one, USA Network’s sophomore drama has enlisted Law & Order: SVU alum Diane Neal to fill the guest-starring role of Allison Holt, a cocky, straight-shooting legal eagle who is hired by Pearson Hardman to defend Harvey in a lawsuit against him — and in doing so gleans that her client may not be entirely innocent of a cover-up.

TheHollywoodReporter.com first reported on the casting of Neal, who appears in the coming season’s sixth episode.

TVLine meanwhile has learned that Erinn Hayes, whose TV credits include Childrens Hospital, Parenthood and Worst Week, will guest-star in a Season 2 episode as “a woman from Harvey’s past.” No further details on her role were available.

  • 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.
