WHITE COLLAR USA NETWORK PRESS RELEASE: USA Network’s hit original series, starring Matt Bomer (“Chuck,” “Tru Calling”), Tim DeKay (“Tell Me You Love Me,” “Carnivàle”), Tiffani Thiessen (“What About Brian,” “Fastlane”), Willie Garson (“Sex and the City,” “John from Cincinnati”), Sharif Atkins (“ER,” “Hawaii”) and Marsha Thomason (“Lost,” “Las Vegas”), returns with all-new episodes of season two at its new time, 10/9c. One of this fall season’s most critically acclaimed dramas, WHITE COLLAR focuses on the most unlikely of partnerships between a con artist (Bomer) and an FBI agent (DeKay). This exciting crime drama, which was one of cable’s #1 shows for 2009, returns with more intrigue and all new cases. In the mid-season cliffhanger, our beloved Mozzie (Garson)’s life lies in the balance after being gunned down by an unknown assailant. When we return, his survival is in question as Peter (DeKay) and Neal (Bomer) set out to find his shooter and work tirelessly to solve the mythology storyline of who killed Kate. There’s plenty of intrigue on the Peter and Neal front as we see them swap identities to solve a case and then get a look back in time to learn how all our characters came together in the first place. This exciting second half of season two features guest stars Andrew McCarthy, Hilarie Burton, Diahann Carroll, Richard Schiff, Paul Blackthorne, Billy Dee Williams, Ross McCall, Adam Goldberg, Gloria Votsis and Alexandra Daddario.
I spoke with WILLIE GARSON about his role as “Mozzie” in WHITE COLLAR on USA NETWORK. Willie is always so wonderful to speak with and he is one of the sweetest and most considerate celebrities that I have ever dealt with. He has worked hard to be where he is and he doesn’t take his popularity for granted. Willie even took the time to thank us for writing about the show. How sweet is he? Talking to WILLIE GARSON is thanks enough. Mozzie has always been my favorite character because there is just something so special about him, he just sparkles. I will keep this short because if I start really focusing on this debonair gentleman with his handsomeness and perfect cranium, I would go over capacity and my website would implode. So, moving on, in the episode, “Forged Bonds”, we get to see Willie’s real life son, Nathan. He contributes in a monumental way and you could say without Nathan’s character, “White Collar” would be a different show. Nathan’s character helps set things in motion. Don’t miss an episode of WHITE COLLAR which airs at 10 PM EST Tuesday nights on USA NETWORK.
