It wasn't that long ago that, if you asked me to watch a TV show on the USA Network, I would have probably scoffed pretentiously in your direction before asserting that the little cable outlet couldn't possibly have anything to offer a respectable television viewer such as myself.
Then, all these little networks (and the not so little, like HBO and AMC) started pumping out great, if not the best, programs out there, and, well, I was forced to take notice. Now, USA's slate is filling up with great shows (read Kelly's review of their new legal dramedy, Suits), and one of their biggest hits, White Collar, just set up a pretty hairy (and fanged) cameo.
Yes, the show may need a collar of a whole different kind when True Blood's resident werewolf (well, the “good” one, anyway), Joe Manganiello, appears on USA's White Collar opposite Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay. Literally opposite as, according to EW, "Manganiello will play a villain on the show, a recently released ex con, who brings trouble to the Burke neighborhood when he moves in across the street." The mid-season finale of Season 3 airs August 9th, with Manganiello's villain scheduled to appear when the show resumes in January 2012.
Manganiello joins several other guest stars already lined up for this season, including Beau Bridges, Eliza Dushku, William Sadler, and Danny Masterson. White Collar airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on the USA Network.
