NYGossipGirl Exclusive Interview: Patrick J. Adams
Suits comes back for its second season tonight, June 14 and Adams gave as a little snippet of what we can expect!
NYGG: What can you tell me about the upcoming season?
Adams: It’s going to be really good, that’s it [laughs]. It’s going to be a little darker in tone, we pick up right where we left off, so we don’t shy away from any of the things that we set up in the first season, which I really respect the writers for doing that. And we just keep heading in the direction that we’re going and we don’t use the difficulty of Mike’s situation as the only set of stakes, so that we’re not relying solely on that. We also bring in a lot of new characters and that’s going to change the dynamic very much of all the partners.
NYGG: What’s it like working with Gabriel Macht?
Adams: Terrible, it’s awful [laughs]. He’s amazing, he’s a great guy and so supportive. He’s been in this business a long time – a lot longer than I have so I look up to him in many ways and ask him a lot of questions and get his opinion on a lot of things. To his credit, he does the same with me, even though I’m new to the craft. We talk constantly with what’s working, what’s not working and how we can get the most out of a scene. It’s a very supportive environment.

NYGG: What’s going to happen with Mike and Rachel?
Adams: How much do you want to know?
NYGG: How much can you tell me?
Adams: I can say that it’s the focus. We end with a triangle in the first season and in the second season, the focus is Mike and Rachel. But, we don’t want to blow it all at once and he’s in a very difficult situation because he hasn’t been honest with her about who he is and what he’s doing there. And I don’t think Mike is the kind of guy that wants to start a relationship based on a lie. So he’s in a very difficult situation with her and we get to see how that plays out. She’s a beautiful, incredibly talented, amazing woman and I think he has a lot of things that he has to overcome before he’s confident to be with her.
NYGG: What else do you have coming up? Do you want to get into film?
Adams: Totally, yeah. We’re looking for stuff to work on now. I have a little movie that’s out now called 6 Month Rule and that just came out and in the off season, I’m hoping to either do some theater here in New York or a movie.
