Gina Torres The Catch

Suits' Gina Torres Jumps to The Catch

Gina Torres‘ stint on the unemployment line was, to put it mildly, brief.

The actress, whose six-season run on Suits came to an end Wednesday night, is joining the cast of ABC’s The Catch in a top-secret recurring role, TVLine has learned. She’ll debut early into the Shondaland thriller’s second season, which kicks off at midseason.

Regarding her Suits exit, Torres says she asked to be released from the Toronto-based USA Network drama so she could relocate back home to Los Angeles (which, not so coincidentally, is where The Catch shoots). “Leaving the show was indeed a difficult decision to make,” the actress said in a statement. “However at this time, it is necessary to get back to my life [in Los Angeles] and all the very important things that being on location in Toronto made very difficult to manage.”

    Holy Spoiler Alert Batman!

    Is the Catch any good?

    • sammy says:

      It has very good moments and very omg I wanna slap them moments. If they can improve on the crappy parts and perhaps make the character’s more interesting then it can be very good.

      • lechatnoir says:

        I think it’s watchable but also forgettable. It’s lik people on that show are too pretty and excessively polished to be believable in their roles.i can see why shunda couldn’t was to snap up this fine ass actress.torres is superior

    • Gern Blanston says:

      A lot of flash, not a lot of substance. At least in the three episodes that I watched before I quit. A typical Shondaland show.

  4. Sally McLinn says:

    You know, she’s married to Laurence Fishburne?

  5. Jerri says:

    Oh great. Now I have to catch up on The Catch before Gina Torres hops aboard. Started watching Suits because of her.

    Also, “Where the Catch soots” ? You mean “shoots”, right?

  6. TheloNaGrapso says:

    The Catch is still on? That’s the surprise here.

  7. Joey Padron says:

    Glad she’ll be back on tv soon next year with The Catch.

  8. Doug Henning says:

    Pretty good cast of TV favorites on The Catch.. Just adding more..

  9. David says:

    Seriously, I love Gina, but this seems like a huuuuge waste of her talent. Watched the last few episodes of The Catch and thought it was very a very poor writing quality, formulaic and silly. Honestly, I thought it was cancelled. Gina is a far better actress. I am so sad to see her leave Suits.

    • Boldlow says:

      Interesting how different our views are. I find her to be a very stilted and unattractive actress and always FF through her bits on Suits. Glad to hear my opinion isn’t universal.

  10. Ryan says:

    Didn’t she have a pilot get picked up?

  11. shrike3000 says:

    Well that’s it for me and TVLine. Spoilers right in the title? No thanks.

  12. TvPeong says:

    I remember her from Cleopatra 2525. I wonder if it’s streaming anywhere. I haven’t been a fan of the Catch, but I’ll try it again this season to see Gina.

  13. HAP says:

    She was part of the wonderful cast of Firefly. That’s where I first recall encountering her. I’m guessing that many folks did not know that Suits was shot in Toronto. Gina is married to Laurence Fishburne and has a daughter named Delilah. She will now be able to stay closer.

  14. Babygate says:

    I love Jessica and will gladly support any role Gina takes on.

  15. Brett Thomas says:

    The top secret is that she’ll be playing Anna Espinosa… the catch is, she’s really Sydney Bristow as an Anna clone.

  16. Marvin Tabor says:

    You will be missed. Enjoyed your character vey much. Very classy and pretty lady.

  17. Margie says:

    You will be missed. I loved your character on tge series suits. You kicked butt girl! Showed that women can be up there in the corporate world. I am looking forward to watching you on your new series. Hoping to see you pop in here and there on suits. Take care best of luck to you.

  18. Adam says:

    she was one of the best in the show and suits is the best show i know

  19. sunshine says:

    I’m just thrilled to hear The Catch is renewed. Not a big fan of Torres who was pretty stiff and one dimensional in Suits but maybe she’ll learn a different facial expression for the new role.
