Since Hilarie Burton is not returning to Grey’s Anatomy, can you please tell me if you have any news regarding her returning to White Collar? – Rocky I can confirm that Burton will not be reprising her role as Sara anytime during Season 5. Besides, Neal’s dance card is plenty full with a new lady.
The new thriller drama follows Dr. Ellen Sanders (played by Toni Collette), a top-shelf surgeon who with her family is abducted by terrorists the night before she is to operate on the President of the United States. Burton will recur as Samantha, an assistant to Tate Donovan’s Brian Sanders — aka Ellen’s secret-keeping, commercial real estate-dealing husband.
“Question: Is there anything concrete yet about Hilarie Burton returning to White Collar? Not that I don’t love the idea of Bridget Regan wooing Neal, too! —Lanie
Ausiello: A White Collar source tells me “there’s discussion about bringing Sara back” but nothing is 100 percent official just yet. My gut says there will be something official in the next couple weeks.”—Ask Ausiello (via fuckyeahnealsara)
The doctors reach out to Bailey but she continues to shut everyone out; after an incident with Ethan’s grandmother, Owen fears the child could end up in foster care; and a new craniofacial specialist (Hilarie Burton) arrives at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to work on a young patient; meanwhile, a magician’s assistant is rushed into the ER after a magic trick goes terribly wrong, on “Grey’s Anatomy,” THURSDAY, MAY 2 (9:00-10:02 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Guest Starring Hilarie Burton (“White Collar”), Jason George (“Sunset Beach”) And Jennifer Bassey (“All My Children”)
One Tree Hill alumna Hilarie Burton has now been cast as Maddie, replacing Egerton. The List, from Paul Zbyszewski and Ruben Fleischer, centers on the intense Deputy U.S. Marshal Soto (Michael Peña) who, when members of the Federal Witness Security Program start getting killed, leads the hunt for the person who stole “the list” – a file with the identities of every member of the program.
Maddie is the mother of his two kids, an attractive psychologist
‘WHITE COLLAR’: SCOOP ON SARA’S ‘BIG ROLE’ FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON
I want to know if we’re going to see more Sara now? I was a little disappointed by the beginning of this season, because I was expecting to see much more [of] her character, due to the actress, Hilarie Burton, [being] made regular. And if you can give me some spoilers about this, I really hope to Neal and Sara back together!! Thank you so much; I look forward to January 22nd!!!!! — Clemence.
First, I got so many wonderful questions for my chat with executive producer Jeff Eastin and a little closer to the premiere, I’m going to highlight several more for a post. Thanks to everyone who sent them in! But until then, I’ll delve a little deeper into this question. In short: YES! More Sara is on the way, and, in fact, I can tell you she’ll be around for much more than just assisting on capers. “The last couple of shows before the finale, Sara plays a very big role,” says Eastin. “I have to say what happens to them [in the finale] is pretty spectacular.” (Hint: The Empire State Building is involved.)
Additionally, Eastin shares that Sara will have a pretty significant development in her professional life: She gets a job offer! The problem? It’s in another country! And while she and Neal have enjoyed their friends-with-benefits arrangement thus far, “when this job offer comes up in the U.K., it certainly puts a lot of pressure on them.” “They realize this [could be] the end,” he says. “Suddenly, because of that pressure, Neal certainly feels pressure to make a decision: Is he content to let her disappear for his life.”
Are you all thinking what I’m thinking?! Again, I say, more scoop soon!
