The latest buzz is that “Suits” Season 5 will see John Pyper-Ferguson in a major recurring role. He is set to play one of the partners of the firm.

Pyper-Ferguson is portraying the character called Jake, according to In addition to being one of the firm’s partners, he will also be appointed as the new head of Compensation Committee at Pearson Specter Litt.

The report hints at an “on-going power struggle” between Harvey (Gabriel) and Louis (Rick Hoffman). With Donna serving as Louis’ secretary in the new season, this power struggle is likely to get intense, and it looks Jack would get caught up in that. Deadline reports that he will have to work with the power struggle that is taking place.

Pyper-Ferguson is the second actor who has booked a recurring role on “Suits” Season 5. As previously reported, Christina Cole has signed on to play the recurring character of Dr Paula Agard, a Harvard-educated psychiatrist who specialises in high-end corporate consulting. Described as a “perfect match” for Harvey, Dr Agard will be seen indulging in a game of cat and mouse with Harvey, according to reports. She will be introduced in the premiere episode, which is scheduled to air on Wednesday, June 24.

Meanwhile, former NBA basketball player Charles Barkley, who now hosts “Inside the NBA,” has been roped in to guest star in episode 3 of the new season. He will be seen as one of Harvey’s high profile client. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “As one of Harvey’s clients, he’s called in to help the Specter Pearson Litt partner out of a jam when Harvey gets into it with another non-name partner. Only things don’t exactly go as the lawyer hoped.” It looks like this non-name partner may turn out to be Jack.
