According to a report from Deadline, Patrick J. Adams is going to be recurring on the upcoming season of the Amazon hit as Stefano Kilbane, described as “an arrogant business magnate who is obsessed with fine art and has a deep need for revenge.” Basically, this guy is no Mike Ross, which is probably the point and one of the reasons why the role appealed to Adams in the first place. Patrick is coming on this show after having played the lead role on the USA drama for seven seasons — he has yet to turn up on season 8, but all signs point to a season 9 appearance being possible. (It’s still far from assured.)
Seanky Pete, created by Bryan Cranston and David Shore, still feels like one of those shows that are waiting to break out to be even more entertaining than it’s been — and that’s not to say that the first two seasons were not very much entertaining. It’s just a show that does still have a certain degree of potential bubbling underneath the surface, waiting to come out and surprise everyone. A season 3 renewal was all but guaranteed for the show, and we’re just in the midst of waiting now to know precisely when we are going to have a chance to see it back in action. (Rest assured, it’ll be back at you at some point in 2019.)
Some of Adams’ other television credits include appearances on Orphan Black alongside Legends of Tomorrow — he’s done an array of stuff and worked to try and mix things up even when he was a part of Suits for many years. We’re absolutely curious to see what he wants to do beyond the Sneaky Pete role now. He’s at a point in his career where he’s got the flexibility to take on a number of different roles and challenges; it’s mostly all about whatever appeals to him at a particular point in time.
New episodes of Suits will continue to air on USA Wednesday nights at 10:00 p.m. Eastern. You can preview the latest one now just by heading over to the link here.
