White Collar is about the most unlikely of partnerships between a con artist and an FBI agent. The story unfolds after charming criminal mastermind Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer: Chuck, Tru Calling) is caught by his nemesis, G-Man extraordinaire Peter Burke (Tim DeKay: Tell Me You Love Me, Carnivale). After escaping from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Caffrey is nabbed by Burke once again. Rather than returning to jail for this daring getaway, Caffrey suggests an alternate plan - providing his expertise to assist the Feds in putting away infamous and elusive criminals in return for his freedom.
White Collar's cast also includes Tiffani Thiessen (What About Brian, Fastlane), who plays Burke's wife Elizabeth, an intelligent, high-status event planner with a certain intuition of her own. Willie Garson (Sex And The City) plays Mozzie, a friend of Caffrey's with a strong distrust of the Feds and an unyielding belief in conspiracy theories. Diahann Carroll (Grey's Anatomy) is part of the cast as a dynamic recurring guest star. The series also features James Rebhorn, Sharif Atkins (er), and Marsha Thomason (Las Vegas, LOST).
This exciting crime-caper-drama, which was one of the #1 shows in cable of 2009, kicked off its second season in July 2010 with all new cases, more intrigue, more "bromance"...and more Matt Bomer, People Magazine's "Sexiest Rising Star" of 2009.
