Woohoo! I knew it would get renewed, but I’m so happy it’s official now.
USA Network’s freshman dramedy “White Collar” has been collared for a second season.
The show’s creator/executive producer Jeff Eastin tweeted the news Friday evening. “Congratulations to the best cast and crew on television,” he wrote.
The pickup was confirmed by USA though no details on the size of the order or the second season’s premiere date were provided.
“Jeff Eastin created a show that was both on-brand and that arguably took USA Network to a new level of sophistication,” USA’s president of original programing Jeff Wachtel said. “After breaking out of the gate so strongly, and with finale ratings that actually exceeded the premiere, ‘White Collar’ was a lock for a second season.”
In the first portion of its freshman season, “White Collar” was a solid performer though not a breakout hit of the caliber of recent additions “Royal Pains” or “Burn Notice.”
Still, the show, which got off to a strong start with 5.4 million viewers tuning in for the well-reviewed premiere, boasts a charismatic lead in Matt Bomer as a suave white collar criminal-turned-FBI consultant and began to hit its creative stride towards the end of its initial seven-episode run. That run ended on a high note when the fall finale, which followed the record-breaking “Monk” series finale, hit series highs, averaging 5.55 million viewers.
“White Collar” is slated to return for the rest of its freshman season Jan. 20 when it moves from Fridays to Tuesdays.
I added 3 “Traveler” Episode 1×2 video clips! I also redid the “Traveler” Episode 1×1 video clips in better quality.
Matt Bomer Fan.com has been online for 1 month today! In only 1 month, we have had 10,000+ visits, 80,000+ views in the image gallery, and we currently have 240+ followers on our Twitter too. That is absolutely amazing! I would like to thank all our loyal visitors, Crayen for helping me add photos, and also Matt for inspiring me to create this fan site in the first place.
I’ve been searching for more information on “Amy Coyne” in which Matt portrayed a character named “Case”. I didn’t find very much, but I did manage to find a small photo! I’m pretty sure that’s him in the back (wearing a fancy suit like always! *lol*). What do you think? I’m still not sure if this even aired. If you have any information on it, please let me know.
Written By KellyComments Off on New (old) Matt interview added.
I normally just add old interviews I find to the Press Section, but this one is definitely worth reading.
On Sept. 11, 2001, Matthew Bomer was at an audition on the 53rd floor of a high-rise at 23rd Street and Eighth Avenue in New York when he happened to look out the window and see a large passenger jet slam into one of the World Trade Center’s twin towers.
A stunned silence preceded total pandemonium in the room, when everyone in the room sobbed hysterically or were frozen in panic.
“I didn’t know what was going on and obviously was very upset – the building I was in could be next,” Bomer recalled. “All I could think of was to get to the ground floor as soon as possible and get back to my shoddy little apartment in midtown Manhattan.
“I ran the 30 blocks to my place, trying to avoid all the major landmarks along the way,” he continued, drawing a deep breath, “passing scores of people with ashes in their hair and all over their clothes. The first thing I did was grab the cell phone and call my family in Spring, Texas, to tell them I was OK.
“My mother answered the phone and immediately burst into tears. Everything changed that day. … It was weird. … Nobody in this country had faced a tragedy of this magnitude before. New York became a ghost town for a while after that – I couldn’t afford to go anywhere – but everybody came back after a while to rally the city. It was an incredible experience that made me value life a lot more.”
