The veteran actor will play a rich financier with a big personality on the USA drama
Eric Roberts is joining USA Network's “Suits” for its upcoming fourth season.
The Oscar and Golden Globe-nominated actor will play the larger-than-life billionaire financier Charles Forstman. A man with his own way of going about things, Forstman can be quite the ace in the pocket for anyone lucky enough to offer what the man who has everything wants.
Roberts, whose career spans five decades, has appeared in films, television and on stage. He was nominated for an Oscar for 1985's “Runaway Train” and he's a three-time Golden Globe nominee for “Runaway Train,” “Star 80” and “King of the Gypsies.”
Previously, USA announced that “Family Ties” star Michael Gross had also signed on for a recurring role on the upcoming fourth season as the founder of a groundbreaking DVD distribution company.
“Suits” was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh. Season 4 is currently in production in Toronto and will return on Wednesday, June 11 at 9/8c.
“Suits” stars Patrick J. Adams as Mike Ross, who's fooling his law firm into believing he's an accredited attorney from Harvard. Friend and lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) keeps his secret.
