About White Collar:
White Collar is about the unlikely partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years. Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a charming criminal mastermind, is finally caught by his nemesis, FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay.)
When Neal escapes from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Peter nabs him once again. Rather than returning to jail, Neal suggests an alternate plan: He’ll provide his criminal expertise to assist the Feds in catching other elusive criminals in exchange for his eventual freedom. Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that can’t be found on the right side of the law.
Shinning guest stars:
As the popularity of White Collar has grown, so has their list of prestigious guest stars. From former brat packer Andrew McCarthy and three-time Emmy® winner Beau Bridges, to Lando Calrissian himself, Billy Dee Williams and Emmy winner Tom Skerrit. Here, we will count off some of the most memorable cameos during White Collar’s three seasons.
TOM SKERRIT won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Sheriff Jimmy Brock in Picket Fences and was in all of our hearts in Steel Magnolias. As one of America’s favorite movie and TV dad’s, it was no surprise when he turned up on White Collar in season 3 as Agent Burk’s arch-nemesis; his father-in-law.
If anyone thought One Tree Hill alumnus HILARIE BURTON would be held to teenage idol roles, she certainly broke through that mold when she joined White Collar in the recurring role of Sara Ellis, a sexy and clever insurance broker that catches Neal Caffrey’s eye.
For over ten years, DIANE NEAL has portrayed tough-as-nails prosecutor Casey Novak on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. But in the thirteenth episode of season one, she joined the WC squad as FBI Agent Kimberly Rice who reluctantly accepts Neal Caffrey’s help to find a man’s kidnapped daughter.
BEAU BRIDGES has thrice appeared as menacing Agent Kramer, who is skeptical of Neal’s reform and determined to bring him down and send him back to prison. Bridges comes from a rather illustrious acting family – his father, Lloyd, and brother, Jeff, are also award-winning actors.
Star Wars icon BILLY DEE WILLIAMS has made appearances on some of televisions most memorable shows – The Cosby Show, The Jeffersons, Scrubs, Lost and Dynasty among them. As Ford, on White Collar, Williams was reunited with Dynasty wife Diahann Carroll, and gives Matthew Bomer an opportunity to show off one of his other talents: singing.
ANDREW MCCARTHY first appeared in a special flashback episode as the notorious Vincent Adler – the man who taught Neal Caffrey everything he knows though the former teen idol hardly seems old enough to be mentoring the next generation. McCarthy has not only guest starred in two episodes, he also directed an episode in season 3.
Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star ELIZA DUSHKU appeared in the ninth episode of season 3 as a very sexy distraction from Neal’s relationship troubles with Hilarie Burton’s Sara. In addition to Buffy, fans may remember Dushku’s roles in the beloved cheerleader epic Bring it On as well as Fox’s Dollhouse.
My thoughts on White Collar:
I hadn’t watched this show before receiving this giveaway opportunity. Thanks to the power of TV on DVD and online viewing I was able to get acquainted with While Collar real quick!
I find the premise of the show pretty unrealistic, yet extremely entertaining. What makes the show for me is the great chemistry of a likable cast. Neal Caffrey and Tim DeKay have an outstanding bromance going on and it works. I also totally love how Macgyver-like some of the tactics are that they use, white crime bad guys don’t stand a chance. Another major reason why I’ve become a White Collar fan is – I love how clean this show is. Nothing too naughty, no bloody gore or disturbing images, I like that! Also, women will (should) love this show. The women characters on White Collar are written smart, beautiful, and important to the story. Having two smart, beautiful daughters, this is a trend I hope to see more of on television.
