To figure out who’s siphoning scholarship funds from an uber rich Manhattan prep school, Neal (Matt Bomer) poses as a substitute English instructor, and we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at the con man’s journey to the head of the class!
“[It’s] quintessential White Collar where, sure, there’s some danger, but it’s switching roles and playing parts,” explains Tim DeKay, who portrays FBI Agent Peter Burke. “I love those episodes because they’re fun.”
But this particular outing came with its own special set of challenges, especially for Bomer. Recalls the actor, “I’ll never forget the phone call that I got from our director at 9 or 10 on Sunday night going, ‘Can you memorize a Byron poem in verse for tomorrow? It’s just 16 lines. It’s just a few stanzas. And we’ll just be doing it tomorrow at about 7 am.’
“When else am I going to have a job where I get that call on a Sunday night?” Bomer marvels. “It was a blast.”
Press play below for a preview of Neal, er… Mr. Caffrey, in action!
