British actor and musician Max Beesley (Hotel Babylon) has landed a major recurring role on the upcoming third season of USA Network’s Suits, which premieres July 16. He will play Stephen Huntley, Edward Darby’s (recurring guest star Conleth Hill) charismatic right-hand man and Harvey’s (Gabriel Macht) British counterpart, who arrives in the New York office following the merger. The existence of two Harveys will complicate the already precarious personal dynamics at Pearson/Darby. Beesley, repped by APA, Untitled and UK’s Independent Talent, co-stars in indie Pawn and in the UK series Mad Dogs.
Erika Alexander will recur on the new AMC series Low Winter Sun, about the aftermath of a cop murder by fellow Detroit detective Frank Agnew (Mark Strong). Alexander will play Louise “LC” Cullen, a strong and intimidating cop who is matter-of-fact and straightforward in everything she does. When Internal Affairs conducts a corrupt investigation in her department, she takes it in stride. Alexander, repped by Greene & Associates, Untitled and attorney Jeff Bernstein, will next be seen in Michael Radford’s Elsa And Fred.
