US actor Eric Roberts will join 'Suits' in Season 4

Roberts will be playing the recurring role of a billionaire in the popular legal drama.

Eric Roberts is joining USA Network’s Suits for its upcoming fourth season.

The Oscar and Golden Globe-nominated actor will play the larger-than-life billionaire financier Charles Forstman. A man with his own way of going about things, Forstman can be quite the ace in the pocket for anyone lucky enough to offer what the man who has everything wants.

Roberts, whose career spans five decades, has appeared in films, television and on stage. He was nominated for an Oscar for 1985’s Runaway Train and he’s a three-time Golden Globe nominee for Runaway Train, Star 80 and King Of The Gypsies. He is the father of actress Emma Roberts, and brother of award-winning star Julia Roberts.

Previously, USA Network announced that Family Ties star Michael Gross had also signed on for a recurring role on the upcoming fourth season of Suits as the founder of a groundbreaking DVD distribution company.

Suits was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh. Season 4 is currently in production in Toronto, Canada and will return this week in the US.
