Treat Williams Lands Key Role on White Collar Season 4

by at . Comments

Are White Collar fans about to meet Neal's father?

That's mostly a wild guess, but perhaps not too wild based on the casting news just announced by Entertainment Weekly: Treat Williams has landed an extended season four role on the USA hit.

Insiders confirm that the veteran actor (Everwood, Against the Wall) will portray an undercover officer from D.C. named Sam who has some “deeply rooted ties to Neal’s past.” Hence the father speculation.

Another clue: creator Jeff Eastin has said White Collar Season 4 will focus a great deal on - you guessed it - Neal's family.

If "Sam" could be Neil's father -- could he also be Peter's? We don't know much about Peter's past, he could've been given up for adoption at birth, one of "Sam"'s pre-marital indescretions. That would be a major twist!
