Matt Bomer signed autographs for fans outside the Jimmy Kimmel Live studios in LA last night. The handsome actor and his White Collar costar Tiffani Thiessen have been enjoying the warm weather on the West Coast during their break from shooting in snowy NYC. He's been keeping busy during his downtime, though, and was recently among the good-looking guys on the red carpet at the Golden Globe awards. He looked just as dapper for his one-on-one interview with Jimmy Kimmel to chat about his run-in with President Clinton, who happens to a big fan of Matthew's USA network comedy. Matthew also revealed he's heading home to Texas for the Super Bowl, though he wouldn't fully commit to endorsing either the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Green Bay Packers.

From the beaches of Malibu to the streets of Paris, some of our favorite stars were getting soaked (and stripping down) on movie and TV sets this week. Miley Cyrus and Ashley Greene cracked up as they filmed LOL in the rain in France, Matt Lanter went shirtless on the 90210 set, and January Jones debuted her superhero style at work on X Men: First Class in England. Check out our gallery for a look at all the stars on set this week!
Tiffani Thiessen hosted her husband Brady Smith and their two-month-old daughter, Harper, on the NYC set of White Collar on Monday. The new parents debuted their bundle of joy last month in People magazine, and since then Tiffani's been busy tweeting updates on her "little cutie patootie." She took a few weeks off following Harper's birth, and now Tiffani is back to work with her costars Matt Bomer, Tim DeKay, and Willie Garson. Harper's still an infant, but it seems like Tiffani is already sticking to her promise to bring her daughter to work.

Twilight stars Kellan Lutz and BooBoo Stewart posed with lovely ladies Christina Applegate, Alyssa Milano, and AnnaLynne McCord in LA yesterday at VH1's Do Something Awards. The evening honors young people committed to social change, which included the cast of Glee and Leonardo DiCaprio, though he missed out on the show since he's off promoting Inception in Japan. Jane Lynch played host for the night and kept the crowd laughing with sketches about good deeds she performs like reading Eat, Pray, Love to construction workers and doing charity work with Lindsay Lohan and Mother Teresa.
Dog lover Kellan was recognized for his efforts to help animals, and his girlfriend, AnnaLynne, was there to keep him company after her wild bikini birthday weekend in Las Vegas. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz cozied up together backstage while Megan Fox wore Brian Atwood and showed off her sparkly new big diamond wedding ring. Kristen Bell sported a short metallic dress on stage, and White Collar star Matt Bomer looked dreamy in Simon Spurr clothes.

Natalie Portman in brilliant blue stole the spotlight last night at a screening of Brothers in NYC. One of her two leading men, Tobey Maguire, joined her on the red carpet along with his wife Jennifer Meyer, though Jake Gyllenhaal missed the event. Amanda Peet was right by her husband David Benioff's side, supporting his latest screenwriting effort. Natalie was caught up in New Moon mania last week, but yesterday was all about her own upcoming project — check out the moving trailer before its release on December 4.

From Traveler to Chuck, Matthew Bomer has the mysterious, slick, small-screen action star thing down. So I'm excited to get a glimpse of the former Bryce Larkin in his next role, as a criminal turned crimefighter in USA's White Collar.
The concept of White Collar seems to fit pretty well with a couple of other recent USA series, especially In Plain Sight and Burn Notice. Bomer plays Neal Caffrey, a cunning criminal who falls prey to an FBI agent (Tim DeKay) who's been his nemesis for years. He escapes from a maximum security prison, and though he's eventually caught, he comes up with a suggestion that would keep him from being behind bars: He offers his services to help the FBI track down other criminals like himself.
Tiffani Thiessen helps round out the cast. White Collar will air 13 episodes in its first season, which starts in the Fall. Are you interested in giving it a try? To watch the preview, read more

First of all, here's something worthy of celebrating for all you Chuck fans: NBC has picked up the show for a full season, along with the new series Life. Exactly what that means depends on how long it takes to resolve the Hollywood writers' strike, but whenever shows go into production again, Chuck will be among them. Yay!
So it's only right that Chuck followed up the big news with an episode that featured some of the best action sequences since the pilot, an intriguing love triangle, and, of course, the return of Bryce Larkin. To hear my take on the episode's ups and downs, just read more
Remember when the short-lived series "Traveler" ended with an episode that promised to answer all your questions — but then totally didn't? The series creator, David DiGilio, has fixed that with an extensive blog entry at TVGuide.com explaining everything that would have happened in seasons two and three of "Traveler" — and beyond. Here are some of the biggest revelations:
- The quest to uncover the Fourth Branch — the organization that seemed to be calling the shots toward the end of the series — would have been the major plot of season two. Jay, Tyler and Will would have sought to expose the organization, which was a secret society filled with rich, powerful, and mostly corrupt members of America's oldest families.
- The painting — John Trumbull's "Declaration of Independence" — was key because it depicted the formation of the Fourth Branch. Will took it as leverage in case the organization decided to punish him for letting Jay and Tyler live.
- Tyler has an evil brother, Gabriel, who would have been the key nemesis in season two. In that season's finale, Tyler would have been murdered at Gabriel's hands.
