The Dollhouse actress is set to play a role in the ninth episode of the USA series; plus she will be lending her voice to the upcoming motion comic series based on Starz upcoming Torchwood: Miracle Day.
White Collar is about the unlikely partnership of a con artist and an FBI agent who have been playing cat and mouse for years. Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a charming criminal mastermind, is finally caught by his nemesis, FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay.)
When Neal escapes from a maximum-security prison to find his long-lost love, Peter nabs him once again. Rather than returning to jail, Neal suggests an alternate plan: He'll provide his criminal expertise to assist the Feds in catching other elusive criminals in exchange for his eventual freedom. Initially wary, Peter quickly finds that Neal provides insight and intuition that can't be found on the right side of the law.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that thing won't be going so happily-ever-after for new couple Neal Caffrey and Sara Ellis , played by Matt Bomer and Hilarie Burton. Dushku will be appearing at “a point where Neal and Sara have broken up,” says series creator Jeff Eastin.
Of course, there's more to her then just a “short fling,” the “obviously very sexy” character is working for Matthew Keller and Eastin teases that her appearance may not be a one time thing as Eastin revealed, “We did it in such a way that if it works out, we could bring her back.”
Dushku's other role is in the animated Torchwood: Web of Lies. No details have been revealed for the plot of the motion comics. It has been reported that Torchwood stars John Barrowman and Eve Myles will be making an appearance voicing their roles as Capt. Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.
Jane Espenson is said to be working on the series along with co-writer Ryan Scott. Epenson has worked on genre series such as Dollhouse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica and Torchwood. Torchwood: Web of Lies is expected to launch before the July 8 premiere of Miracle Day.
White Collar stars Matt Bomer, Tim DeKay, Willie Garson, Tiffani Thiessen, and Sharif Atkins. Created and executive produced by Jeff Eastin.
