A ‘Family Ties’ patriarch is suiting up for the fourth season of USA’s legal drama ‘Suits.’
Michael Gross, known for portraying Steven Keaton for seven seasons, will embrace his business side as the recurring character of Walter Gillis. He is said to be the down-to-earth founder of a groundbreaking DVD distribution company. Not only is he working hard to fend off multiple takeover bids, but he’s also trying to keep his business solvent.
It looks like one of ‘Suits’ leading men is happy to have Gross on the show. Earlier today, Patrick J. Adams (he plays lawyer Mike Ross) shared a photo of himself with Gross on Instagram. The photo’s caption reads, “Well call me Alex P. Keaton.” For those unaware, Gross played Alex P. Keaton’s, played by Michael J. Fox, former father on ‘Family Ties.’
In addition to Gross, two other TV stars will pop up on Season 4 in recurring roles. As reported last Friday, ‘24’ alum D.B. Woodside will play Jeff Malone, a former SEC prosecutor and a financial expert who has personal stock in Pearson Specter. Soon enough, he begins helping the law firm with a tough challenge.
Meanwhile, ‘Scandal’ actor Brendan Hines will portray Logan Sandler, the son of a multimillionaire entrepreneur who’s driven to prove himself through a splashy acquisition. This then creates quite the conflict between Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Mike.
The third season of ‘Suits’ comes to a close this Thursday at 9/8c, while Season 4 is currently in production and will air this summer on USA.
