Pilot News: Fox's Frankenstein Nabs White Collar Star Tim DeKay

Tim DeKay Frankenstein Pilot

It’s been three months since USA Network’s White Collar ended its six-season run, but star Tim DeKay isn’t ready to hang up his FBI duds just yet.

DeKay will co-star in the Fox drama pilot Frankenstein, our sister site Deadline reports, opposite True Blood alum Rob Kazinsky. DeKay’s character, Special Agent Duval Pritchard, is unaware that his corrupt partner (Kazinsky) is actually his father, reborn in a younger body. (Don’t worry, though, Papa Pritchard’s still got the “desires and urges” of a 75-year-old curmudgeon.)

In addition to White Collar, DeKay’s recent television credits include roles in TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland, ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and ABC’s Revenge.

White Collar fans, does this sound like a good fit for DeKay? Drop a comment with your thoughts on Frankenstein below.
