Eliza Dushku lands guest role on USA's 'White Collar'
She will appear on the series, which follows con man-turned informant Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) and his FBI partner Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), as an employee of Neal's arch nemesis Matthew Keller (Ross McCall), according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Now for the juicy details: Dushku's character "ends up having a short fling with Neal," says the show's creator Jeff Eastin, after Neal's split with girlfriend Sara Ellis (Hilarie Burton).
So far Eliza's only committed for one episode, but Eastin says, "We did it in such a way that if it works out, we could bring her back." Season three starts Tuesday, and Dushku will appear in the ninth episode.
Since her Fox show "Dollhouse" ended in 2010, the "Buffy" alum has been tied to a CBS sports radio pilot starring Damon Wayans, has guest starred on "The Big Bang Theory" and is rumored to be signed on for "Ghost Busters III."
