After Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) admitted to Tara Messer (Carly Pope) that he was buying a house in the Hamptons just to get closer with her, the architect — without a second thought — agreed in this week’s episode of “Suits” to go on a date with the lawyer. But are fans going to see that date?
“The answer to that is yes,” Hoffman told Entertainment Weekly. “After Louis gets caught in this lie about the house, he ends up just completely stripping himself down and just being blatantly honest and letting her know why he did what he did, and that earns him the date.”
“You definitely get to see at least the start of the journey of a potential Louis and Tara relationship,” the 46-year-old actor added. “What that brings, we don’t know exactly. It’s one of those things where, let’s just put it this way: In most relationships, nothing comes easy — especially for Louis. I’m sure you can imagine.”
Although Hoffman revealed that Louis won’t be taking Tara to a mud bath or to a cat museum for their date, he did say that the “date won’t be a boring viewing experience.”
In a separate interview with USAnetwork.com, Hoffman said that Louis and Tara’s relationship is just as interesting as Louis’ romance with Sheila Sazs (Rachel Harris).
“Without giving anything away, I think, like any relationship, it has its own independent dynamic,” the actor said of Louis’ new romantic pairing. “Sheila and Louis had a very ‘You-bring-the coconut-oil-and-ski-mask’dynamic; they had a ‘hit-me-harder’ dynamic. Louis and Tara have a different type of unique dynamic that I think is equally as interesting — just different.”
