Rather than take your child to work day, we now have take your father to work day! TVLine exclusively reported that Gabriel Macht’s father, actor Stephen Macht, will be joining USA’s ‘Suits’ Season 3.
Stephen will portray longtime Harvard Law Professor Gerard “who is notorious for his high standards and rigid ways.” Expect the veteran actor to pop up in Episode 2 of the third season’s winter run.
According to executive producer Aaron Korsh, “He plays an integral role in one of the through-line storylines in the back 6 [episodes]. He does not have a positive history with Harvey Specter. They have a conflictual scene.”
Despite Stephen and Gabriel’s characters battling it out on the hit drama, in real life Gabriel is thrilled to be working with his father. The leading man who portrays suave lawyer Harvey Specter posted several tweets on Twitter showcasing his enthusiasm.
Above, Gabriel tweeted a picture of the two getting their hair and makeup done for the day. What a family bonding experience! Gabriel also posted, “Hanging with my dad on set is pretty awesome.”
I couldn’t imagine it not being “awesome.” Gabriel clearly takes after his father’s acting chops, as Stephen is known for starring in ‘General Hospital,’ ‘Boston Public,’ ‘The Practice,’ ‘Murder, She Wrote’ and ‘Cagney & Lacey,’ to name a few.
To hold ‘Suits’ fans over, until the series returns, here’s another photo of the two getting ready to strut their stuff on the small screen.
‘Suits’ comes back this winter. Are you excited to see Stephen and Gabriel share the small screen?
