Orphan Black got a lot of famous fans when it debuted in the spring on BBC America, and one of them was Patrick J. Adams of USA’s Suits, who tweeted often about his love of the show. Well, the two parties have now been brought together in an official capacity as Adams spent today on the Toronto set of Orphan Black filming a guest spot for season 2 (which will premiere April 19, 2014).
Deadline first reported the news, and now a statement comes from Adams himself, who states that, “From my first viewing of the first episode I knew there wasn’t another show on television that I wanted to be part of more than Orphan Black. Tatiana Maslany is doing some of the best work on TV. Period. Really, I just wanted front row seats to that performance.”
So who is Adams playing? BBC America describes his role thusly: “Patrick takes on the part of Jesse a down to earth guy with guts to match his good nature. But when the clones’ problems come crashing into his life, Jesse’s decent heart lands him in a world of trouble he never saw coming.” Sounds intriguing, although Admas may have to have himself cloned if we wants to appear more on the BBC America hit while keeping his regular job on USA.
