Actor Warren Kole, who recently appeared in a recurring role on The Following and was one of the leads on the short-lived cop drama Common Law, will be showing up this fall on the long-running fan favorite USA Network series White Collar.
He will be playing Agent David Seigel, Neal Caffrey’s (series lead Matt Bomer) new handler.
As viewers should remember, Neal’s “partner” Peter (series lead Tim DeKay) took the fall for shooting Senator Terrence Pratt (guest star Titus Welliver) in the fourth season’s final episode. That crime was, of course, actually committed by Neal’s dad James (played by Treat Williams), who cut and run, leaving Peter to be arrested for the murder and, as is obvious by the role Kole will play in the show, losing his job and being replaced by a hotshot new agent.
An official return date for the 5th season of White Collar hasn’t been made yet by USA Network, but the show is expected back this fall.
