White Collar to Make Like Gladiator on Season Two, Creator Says

at .

Can you picture Matt Bomer as Russell Crowe in Gladiator, clad in blood, sweat and body-revealing armor?

Many White Collar viewers would love to do just that, and creator Jeff Eastin says the comparison will actually become apt when season two premieres this summer.

Speaking to Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly, Eastin previewed what's ahead on this USA hit:

"The first season was Neal’s pursuit of Kate. [Next] season is about Neal’s pursuit of the person who killed Kate. We’re really shifting to more of a Gladiator style mythology. Peter’s quest this year will be trying to figure out what the music box means and what the clue in that ultimately leads to. At some point, those mythologies will crisscross.”

And if Bomer ends up donning an outfit similar to Crowe's below, all the better for female fans of the series.
