Margo Martindale, who won an Emmy for her portrayal of Justified‘s stone-cold Mags Bennett and starred on CBS’ A Gifted Man, will appear in an episode of USA’s legal drama Suits this summer. She will play Nell Sawyer, a nurse who proves unflappable in the face of Harvey’s hardball tactics after her union threatens a strike against the hospital he represents.
“I am a huge fan of Justified. I never miss an episode and I thought Margo’s performance last year as Mags Bennett was utterly riveting,” Suits creator Aaron Korsh tells EW. “As soon as she was suggested, I jumped all over the idea. In spite of the fact that Mags killed that girl’s father. That poor little girl who really had no one else. No one at all. Alone in the world… You know what, forget it, that woman is a horrible, murderous hillbilly and I want nothing to do with her.”
Season 2 of Suits will premiere in June. Martindale will guest in its third episode. USA is now airing repeats of season 1, which earned star Patrick J. Adams a SAG nomination, Fridays at 11 p.m. ET.
