Cop 'Boyfriend' Bracket: White Collar, Justified, True Blood, Castle and Mentalist Enter the Fray!

Do these guys have guns in their pockets, or are they just happy to be competing in our Ultimate Law-Enforcement Crushes Bracket Tournament?

Who can say, really? All we know is that it’s Day 3 of our 64-player, single-elimination showdown, with characters from True Blood, White Collar, NCIS: Los Angeles, The Walking Dead, The Mentalist, Justified, and Castle joining the action.

Tomorrow, the “classic” half of our bracket continues with characters who are gone from the small screen, but hardly forgotten. Eventually, our battle will boil down to a finale that pits the ultimate old-school crime-fighter against the ultimate modern-day hero. (Their female counterparts will have their turn in November.)

Every afternoon over the next few weeks, we’ll launch another set of bouts that will have you committing crimes and misdemeanors on the off chance one of our competitors shows up to cuff you. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 1 voting will be open for 72 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.

(Oh, and in case you’re wondering/fretting, we put a cap of two cast members per show for the bracket, which meant some fan favorites had to warm the bench this time around.)
