Coming off filming Torchwood: Web of Lies and lending her voice to Batman: Year One and Noah’s Ark: The New Beginning, Eliza Dushku will cozying up to the charming Neal Caffrey on USA Channel’s popular White Collar.
In an episode entitled “On the Fence,” Dushku widens the growing chasm between Neal and Sara by becoming maybe a little too friendly with Neal as she helps Neal and Peter on a case involving a wanted fugitive named Matthew Keller (Ross McCall). Keller smuggles Egyptian artifacts and sells them to the highest bidder. As an Egyptologist, Dushku’s character is in a prime position to romance Neal and help out on the case.
If things work out, this may not be the only appearence by Dushku, according to series creator Jeff Eastin. He revealed to THR that they left things, “…in such a way that if it works out, we could bring her back.” Excellent!
Tune in to White Collar on Tuesday August 2nd at 9PM ET/PT.
