  1. How does this ham Mark Sheppard keep getting work on decent shows? 100% fed up of him now.

  2. Amber says:

    Go Issa! I really hope you bring some of the actors from Abg with you. Cece and Markus need to be on tv.

  3. Heathers says:

    Sons of Poetry, ha, ha. Cute funny skit!

  4. Becky says:

    I love Mark Sheppard, can’t wait to see him back on White Collar!

  5. Kristina says:

    Yeah!!! Can’t get enough of him.

  6. Bella says:

    I love Mark Sheppard, too. I don’t remember him from the pilot,though.

  7. A says:

    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

    • bluefairy says:

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

      • A says:

        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.

  8. scifisiren says:

    Mark Sheppard is a boss.

  9. Chris says:

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

  10. Malachi says:

    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.

  11. I would like to see more of Sesame Street spoofing more TV shows like Breaking Bad, Homeland and many others.

  12. Lana says:

    It’s amazing how much Tig’s Muppet looks exactly like Kim Coates!!

    • AshleyRae says:

      I agree Kim Coates’s tig muppet is freakin COOL and looks just like him!
      That was a CUTE and FUN VIDEO for such a DARK AND GRITTY show. LOVE S.O.A!!!!!!!!

  13. meatwad says:

    i know him as Sterling from Leverage

    • Ethel says:

      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.

  14. JBC says:

    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.

  15. alice moore says:

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

  16. Sunny says:

    He was also on Battlestar Galactica as Gauis Baltar lawyer,Roman.

  17. CeeCee says:

    Love this!!! Well done!
