Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…
• Treat Williams has booked a recurring role in the upcoming season of White Collar, EW.com reports. The Everwood alum will play a boorish undercover officer with “deeply rooted ties” to Neal. (All together now: Hmmmmm….) Entourage‘s Perrey Reeves has also been Collar‘d as an over-ambitious “fixer” in a Season 4 episode.
• Big-screen funnyman Russell Brand has been tapped to host the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, airing Sunday, June 3 at 9/8c.
• AMC has ordered 16-episode second seasons of its unscripted series Talking Dead and Comic Book Men.
• DirecTV has given the green light to Rogue, a 10-episode drama starring Thandie Newton (Crash). The project — which is the cabler’s first original series — centers on cop who is tormented by both her son’s death and the idea that her actions may have contributed to it.
