Hilarie Burton has booked her first TV role since leaving “One Tree Hill”: She’ll be romancing a certain con artist on USA this summer.
Burton will have a recurring part on “White Collar” this summer, playing a woman from Neal’s (Matthew Bomer) past who catches back up with him in both a professional and personal way. She’s signed on for six episodes, according to Fancast.
Her character is named Sara Ellis, and she’s an insurance investigator who tangled with Neal in his pre-FBI consultant days over an art heist. She tracks him down again, and heat is generated.
“White Collar” returns to USA on July 13.
