While we saw Matt Bomer’s Neal Caffrey deal with someone from his own past throughout “White Collar” season 5, that was someone in his father that was still an unknown character to all of us watching the show. So what do we have the opportunity to see him do now? How about face off against someone who is actually from the show’s past again!
According to The Huffington Post, Mark A. Sheppard, who currently is recurring on “Supernatural” as Crowley, is going to reprise his role from the show’s pilot as The Dutchman. It’s clearly been a long time since we’ve seen him, and given what happened the last time he and Neal squared off, don’t you imagine that he is going to have a little bit of revenge on his mind? We do.
Sheppard has one of the most impressive TV resumes out there in recent years, as he also recurred heavily on “Leverage” over the years, and even had a part on a couple of episodes of “Firefly.” To us, that is one of the many signs of some serious TV power.
Now, the mystery remains as to when USA is actually going to be putting “White Collar” back on the air. The network has not announced a premiere date just yet for the new season, and the only thing that we know right now is that it’ll be back in the fall. Our guess? Think October, so that there are a few weeks of the fall season that go by so that people get bored and then go back to their old favorite.
