“Suits” season 5 spoilers revealed that a new A-list client will be needing the service of Pearson Specter Litt in the coming episodes. NBA player Charles Barkley will reportedly guest star in its premiere, slated on June 25.
According to “Suits” season 5 spoilers from Christian Today, Charles Barkley will play as himself in the episode 3 of the legal drama series. It was reported that the athlete has been thrilled to land a role in “Suits” given that he’s a huge fan of the show.
“It’s really cool for me, because when they heard me bragging about the show they invited me and I was like, ‘I gotta make it work.’”
Despite his busy schedule, Barkley revealed that he tried his best to make time for the shoot. “Suits” creator Aaron Korsh, meanwhile, said that it was such a treat to have the basketball star on set, given that he has always looked up to Barkley. He shared that he often gets request for others to be put on the show, but when he heard that Barkley is interested to do a cameo, he did not have to ask twice.
“When I heard Charles say he is a fan of the show, to me it’s very personal. I’m a huge basketball fan, I always have been. And in particular a Barkley fan,” he said.
It was said that Charles Barkley will play a fictionalized version of himself and play as one of Harvey’s clients. Rumor has it, the athlete will provide a good distraction to get Harvey’s mind off Donna.
