Suits is looking to The Big Bang Theory to add to its guest star slate.

In the episode, Mann will play recent Harvard Law graduate Maria, who lands on Louis' (Rick Hoffman) radar as he embarks on a search for his own associate. However, Maria won't be an easy get for Louis because she is being courted by several top law firms in New York City.
Promos for Thursday's episode of Suits have hinted at a promotion for Louis at Pearson Hardman.
The Glick Agency-repped Mann recently starred in the feature The Monogamy Experiment. She has also appeared in The Young and the Restless, Heroes and Quarterlife.
Suits airs 10 p.m. Thursdays on USA.
