While some of you out there may still be mourning the loss of “CSI: Miami,” there is still some good news — a certain star from the show’s past has already found a new home (albeit in a guest-starring role).
According to a report from TV Guide, Emily Procter has signed on to Matt Bomer’s hit USA series “White Collar” in a two-episode arc that could have both Neal and Peter shaking in their boots a little bit. Her character is Assistant Special Agent in Charge Amanda Callaway — otherwise known as a head of the White Collar Division. It’s unclear just when this arc will start to air at this time.
Before booking this role, Procter starred in a staggering 232 episodes of the CBS crime procedural, which was canceled in a last-minute decision that was seemingly between this show and “CSI: NY.” (The original “CSI” is also still on the air.) The saddest part of it is that he “Miami” show really did not get a fitting conclusion that so many fans deserved — even if the “White Collar” role for Procter is some nice consolation and a potential launching pad into something new down the road. The series is one of the strongest critically on USA, and Bomer and Tim DeKay’s performances are typically met with a great deal of acclaim. (It’s too bad that there is not more awards-show love to go with it.)
