White Collar star, Matt Bomer did a little Q&A session last night (January 16) at the Apple Soho store in New York City.
“I’ve known Joe for fifteen years. We went to college together. And then White Collar came next. [The producers] said, “Do you think your friend Joe will do an episode?” And I said, “I hope so.” And he said yes and he did a great job. It’s kind of a Rear Window-themed episode and he was fantastic and that was so fun. And then Magic Mike came after that.”
This season of White Collar opens where the kidnapping of Elizabeth Burke left off last season. TV Line asked Matt how that fact that Neal stole the treasure, lied about it and inadvertently got Elizabeth kidnapped – how will that affect Peter and Neal’s relationship?
Matt responded, “That would be the ‘fraught with tension’ portion in my description. Their relationship is definitely as strained as it’s ever been and actually comes to a physical confrontation at one point. But Peter also knows he needs Neal to help him out, and Neal cares a great deal about Elizabeth, so he’s going to do everything he can to help her, as well. So as dark and deep as they go, I think they always… They’re going to come back to good at some point.”
The season three opener of White Collar airs tonight on USA at 10/9c.
