Before I expand on this some basics about actor contracts and the difference between regular and guest characters: An actor playing a regular has certain rights, including getting credited as such and turning up in a certain number of episodes. As far as I know, a regular at White Collar gets a scene in at least ten episodes. The downside is that the actor is bond to the show and can’t take on other projects that easily. Rumor has it that this is the reason Sharif Atkins is still officially listed as a guest...
The third season of White Collar will soon premiere, and the show's new co-star, Hilarie Burton, spoke with reporters on what can be expected in the upcoming episodes. And it sounds like we will be getting a lot more crime, romance and character twists this summer.
Burton's character, insurance investigator Sara Ellis, was previously a recurring character on the crime-solving series. But in season 3, Sara will be a regular and an emerging love interest for Neal Caffrey (series star Matt Bomer). With Sara's increasingly important role on the show, Burton was able to provide a...

appears there will be many more “stolen” moments between Neal Caffrey and Sara Ellis: USA Network’s White Collar is promoting the utterly awesome Hilarie Burton to series regular for Season 3, TVLine has learned exclusively.
At the time she lensed her very first White Collar episode, Burton shared her wish for her recurring role to turn into something longterm. As she put it, series leads Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay “are so sincere in their generosity and their kindness, I’d stay forever, man.”
Sara Ellis, whom we met late in the first half of White Collar’s [USA, Tuesdays, 10/9C] current season, is a no-nonsense insurance investigator who does whatever it takes to close a case. If that means going to extra-legal lengths, then that’s fine.
Recently I had the opportunity to take part in a teleconference call with Hilarie Burton, the actor who plays Ellis. Burton, it turns out is both voluble and witty – when she’s finished answering a question, it stays answered! It’s easy to see that she’s having a good time in her recurring role on White Collar and that...
Do you really think that Peter is the bad guy? From the previous episodes, my judgement is that he's a pretty good person. Have you also noticed that Elizabeth is probably a character to voice how Peter is REALLY thinking? He's probably PROTECTING Kate from the real villain. And he can't tell Neal beause he knows he'd be too tempted.
Don't you think so?
BTW, it is my new goal to see the White Collar fan club #1 on the leaderboard. Tell everyone you know to watch at least one episode, then they'll want to join too.
Sad news - James Rebhorn, who played Peter's boss Reese Hughes on the show, passed away on March 21st in his house in Virginia. He lost a long-term battle with skin cancer at the age of 65. RIP, Mr. Rebhorn!
