The USA Network’s Suits has become one of the most thrilling and unpredictable series on television, and things are sure to heat up on the summer finale. As Jessica Pearson, actress Gina Torres is compelling in every episode, partly for her strength and brutal honesty, and partly because she can be both your best enemy and your worst friend, especially if you’re Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht).
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Gina Torres talked about what’s coming up for her character, what she’s enjoyed about the journey this season, how the stakes just keep getting higher and higher, whether Jessica and Harvey can ever expect true loyalty from each other, and whether she’d like to see Jessica get a love interest. She also talked about her experience doing Season 1 of Hannibal and her hope to return to Season 2, and what’s it like for people to still be fans of Firefly, so many years after it went off the air. Check out what she had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

With the USA Network hit drama series Suits airing it’s season finale Thursday night, I recently got on the phone with Patrick J. Adams (who plays Mike Ross) to talk about the second season and director Kirk Sullivan’s short film The Come Up. In the short, Adams plays an ambitious production assistant who attempts to “pull off a daring heist on a Hollywood film set in a scheme right out of the movies, all to impress the industry’s biggest producer while (of course) pitching his screenplay in the process.” The short also stars Adams’ real life girlfriend Troian Bellisario.
During the extended interview Adams talked about his early career, getting cast on Suits, his early TV work, what lawyers always want to talk to him about, the importance of a great antagonist, season 3, Tim Hortons, and more. In addition, we also talked about this year’s Sundance, how he got involved with Sullivan’s short film The Come Up, the stunts, and a lot more. Hit the jump to watch the short film and read the interview.
With the fate of Pearson Hardman having been determined, things will pick back up on the hit USA Network drama series Suits on January 17, 2013 in a very different, weakened place, and the dynamic duo of Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) may also be called into question, with Mike still reeling from the death of his beloved grandmother and questioning his place at the firm. The show also stars Gina Torres, Rick Hoffman, Meghan Markle and Sarah Rafferty.
During this recent interview to promote the return of the final six episodes of Season 2, actress Sarah Rafferty talked about what’s in store for sassy legal secretary Donna Paulsen, what she enjoys most about working on Suits, what makes the show so popular among the fans, how exciting it is to play such a strong female character, what she enjoys about working in Toronto, her favorite episode for Harvey and Donna, where Donna might go in the future, and how playing this character really is a dream role. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
With award season campaigning in full swing, the SAG Awards TV nominating committee held a screening and Q&A for the USA Network hit drama series Suits, and Collider was invited to attend. With the fate of Pearson Hardman having been determined, things will pick back up on January 17, 2013 in a very different, weakened place, and the dynamic duo of Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) may also be called into question, with Mike still reeling from the death of his beloved grandmother and questioning his place at the firm. The show also stars Gina Torres, Rick Hoffman, Meghan Markle and Sarah Rafferty.
During this interview, show star Patrick J. Adams talked about how he came to be a part of Suits, how he first met co-star Gabriel Macht, the most challenging scene he’s had to do, how much improvisation they do on set, how the show has changed his life, what fans fan expect from the remaining Season 2 episodes, and how much he’s like his character, in real life. He also talked about when he realized he wanted to be an actor, how he went about achieving that goal, learning he’d been nominated for a SAG Award last year, his worst audition (which consisted of him mistakenly thinking Mad Men was a sitcom), his favorite roles prior to Suits, and what got him through the times when he was struggling in his career. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
Syfy gave Eureka the unexpected axe earlier this week, but for every cancellation, there is an equal and opposite renewal. The Live Feed reports the network renewed Warehouse 13 for a fourth season, appropriately ordering 13 episodes to premiere in 2012. Led by Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, and Aaron Ashmore, Warehouse 13 is currently airing season three episodes on Monday nights.
In other renewal news, USA renewed two shows: Suits and In Plain Sight. Suits has been a solid addition to the USA rotation since its June series premiere averaging more than 6 million viewers per episode. The network ordered 16 episodes for season two. The news is more bittersweet for In Plain Sight, as The Live Feed hears the newly announced season five will also be its last. The series, which stars Mary McCormack as a U.S. Marshal, wrapped up its fourth season last Sunday. Leave your condolences and/or celebration in the comments, depending on the predicament of your favorite show mentioned here.
