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.
