White Collar stars, Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay, recently talked to the press about the new season of the show, which starts tonight on USA at 9/8c. There was an easy comraderie between the two of them, and you could tell them have a lot of fun together on the show. White Collar, which is about the most unlikely of partnerships between a con artist (Bomer) and an FBI agent (DeKay), also stars Tiffani Thiessen, Willie Garson and Sharif Atkins, and Marsha Thomason (Lost) re-joins the cast as a series regular with Diahann Carroll returning as a recurring guest star.

I recently got a chance, along with a few other journalists, to interview Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay from White Collar. It was a great experience.
For those of you who are not familiar with the show, White Collar is a new show this season to the USA network, and it centers around the strange partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years. Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) a smooth talking, criminal genius who is finally caught by Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) who is a very savvy and uptight FBI agent.
When Neal escapes from a maximum-security prison to search for his true love,Kate, Peter catches him again.However, Neal offers to help Peter catch other criminals using his criminal genius in and exchange for not going to jail and for Neal to eventually be let go permanently.They make the deal and although Peter worries he’s making a mistake Neal proves himself to be indispensable with his criminal knowledge that’s hard to find among those on the good side.
The show quickly became a success and recently had the premiere for the second half of the season, which was impeccable. It’s hard not to love this show with the witty banter between Neal and Peter, who are played superbly by Matt and Tim, as well as the stellar supporting cast (including the lovely Tiffani Thiessen).
I’m also not above mentioning how sexy the main characters are making it a feast for both your mind and your eyes. I’ll admit to being slightly tongue-tied while interviewing the leading men. I couldn’t help but picture Matt with his sexy blue eyes and Tim with his charming smile and it reminds me that sometimes my life truly rocks! 😉 Without furthur drooling let’s get to the interview part, enjoy!
