  • I think what’s more important than casting news is what day the show will actually be coming back. Then, I can give a crap about who’s returning. Seriously missing this show. I hope USA doesn’t pull a Psych and make us wait forever for it to return

    • It’s returning in the fall. Probably in late September, like most fall shows.

      • I know they said it’s returning in the fall, I’m just eager for an actual date since most networks have already revealed premiere dates for their shows.

  • I can’t wait to see Mark Sheppard on White Collar

  • To me, he will always be “Badger” from Firefly. Yes, I realize he was in maybe 2 episodes of a show that was only on for 14 episodes, a decade ago. Yes, I realize that this may make me sound pathetic.
    .
    But it’s not just another show. It’s *Firefly,* dammit. Still flying.

  • i know him as Sterling from Leverage

    Comment by meatwad – August 6, 2013 06:25 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That is where I first remember him but now I am amazed at all the shows he is in or has been on. Kind of like Mark Pellegrino. I had never heard of him until The Closer and now I find him everywhere. They are both great actors.

  • This news does alot in taking the sting out of having a shortened season. I like the “Dutchman” and am glad that they are reprising Mark Sheppard’s role from the pilot. I also enjoyed Mark S.’s role in Leverage as Sterling.
    HURRY BACK WHITE COLLAR. WE MISS YOU!!

  • I have never seen White Collar, but I will be watching if Mark Sheppard is in it! He is FANTASTIC in everything he does.
