On today’s bite-sized serial menu, news and tidbits from the worlds of Burn Notice, Revenge, White Collar, Being Human (Syfy), Game Of Thrones and True Blood.
- Burn Notice has recruited Chad Coleman, who played Dennis “Cutty” Wise on The Wire, and Telemundo actress Angelica Celaya, for guest-starring roles in upcoming episodes of Season 6. Per THR, Coleman will turn up in the 10th episode as Brady Pressman, “a committed and noble CIA operative who was the leader of a botched operation that resulted in terrible consequences. Hellbent on making amends, Brady is a man on the mission, trying to make things right and prove he’s still a worthy agent.” Meanwhile, Celaya will appear in the ninth episode as “the sexy and charming Angela Flores, the girlfriend of an engineer who might be selling weapons technology on the black market. The CIA uses her as an asset to get close to the engineer, but the job might require more patience and professionalism than she can handle.”
- Revenge creator Mike Kelly believes the soapy-serial’s first season proves that the story is sustainable. He told EW:
“We were definitely burdened with that perception that it was going to be tough to sustain the concept. I think people see now that we’re able to continue to tell really compelling revenge stories for time to come. After the season finale people went, ah, there is more.”
- Matt Bomer spoke with TV Line about his White Collar future:
“I consider White Collar my home base. I’m so lucky to get to play a character that’s very multifaceted and the writers take risks on and never get into a staid process with. They’re always challenging themselves and, thusly, me as an actor. As long as they continue to do that, I’m happy. I love my job on White Collar. I won’t be leaving it any time soon.”
