This week’s episode of USA’s Suits (Thursday, 10 p.m. ET) is a big one for Louis Litt. Daniel wants to name him a senior partner so he’ll vote for him to replace Jessica as managing partner, and Jessica makes sure Louis knows that if he does side with Daniel and she wins, he’s out at Pearson Hardman. It’s also an important hour for actor Rick Hoffman, who gets to share the screen with his parents, Gail and Charlie Hoffman, who make their acting debuts as Louis’ parents. Watch an exclusive clip below.
Hoffman attributes the guest spot to Suits creator Aaron Korsh being on hand when his parents made an earlier set visit. “No matter what set she’s been on over the last 12 years, my mother always finds a way to get in the way. Not in a bad way,” Hoffman tells EW. “Like, she once got caught on a law show I did called Philly trying to take a picture — she was caught on-camera in the background. She does things like this. This particular time around, they’re sitting there in Video Village watching me do a scene with Meghan and Patrick, and all of a sudden, I hear a giggle out of my left ear. (He recreates it.) I’m thinking to myself as I’m doing my scene, Is that her? If that’s her, I’m gonna kill her. She did it three times. She thinks she’s in, like, an airplane with earphones on watching a movie in her seat. Thank god, she did not ruin a take. But Aaron thought they were a riot. Everyone loved them. And then Aaron had the idea that Louis and his parents use Skype. ‘Do you mind having your parents do it?’ I was like, ‘Nope. Don’t mind at all.’”
