Jamey Sheridan will soon be causing trouble on "Suits." The veteran actor will guest-star on an upcoming Season 3 episode as one of the lawyers destroyed by Jessica Pearson ( Gina Torres) in her climb to the top of the legal world.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sheridan will play Charles Van Dyke. Van Dyke was one of the original name partners of the firm later known as Pearson Hardman, Pearson Darby, Pearson Darby Specter and now Pearson Specter. When Jessica and Daniel Hardman ( David Costabile) staged a takeover of the firm -- then known as Gordon Schmidt Van Dyke -- Sheridan's character was one of those shoved out the door.

When he returns, we probably cannot expect much forgiveness for Jessica or anyone else at the firm.

Jamey Sheridan has a rather impressive resume when it comes to TV work. Recently seen in "Arrow" (as the ill-fated Robert Queen), "Homeland" (as Vice President Walden) and "Smash" (as Richard Francis), the actor is also known for "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Trauma" and "Chicago Hope."

"Suits" will return with new episodes of Season 3 at some point in January 2014. USA announced the drama's renewal for Season 4 on Thursday (Oct. 24).
