Trivia / White Collar

  • Actor Allusion:
    • Graham Phillips' character in "Upper West Side Story" is named Evan.
    • Peter refers to Keller as "Bizarro Neal", a wink to Tim DeKay's portrayal of "Bizarro Jerry" on Seinfeld.
    • In "Identity Crisis" (S 4 E 6), amongst the "questionable government programs" that Mozzie lists is the "Stargate".
      • Well, seeing as Mozzie is played by SG-1's Martin Lloyd, he would know.
  • The Cast Showoff: In "Countermeasures", Diahann Carroll and Matt Bomer doing a lovely rendition of "One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)", accompanied by Billy Dee Williams on the piano.
  • Directed by Cast Member:
    • Tim Matheson both played the Villain of the Week for and directed "Withdrawal", the second season premiere.
    • Tim DeKay directed "Stealing Home" in the third season.
    • Andrew McCarthy, who played Vincent Adler, directed "Neighborhood Watch," also in the third season.
  • Executive Meddling: Defied in Season 5 & 6. Tim De Kay and Matt Bomer are producers as well as the lead actors, so, after knowing the show for 4 years, would be less likely to make poor decisions for the show.
  • Fake American: Mancunian Marsha Thomason as Diana Barrigan, who incidentally goes undercover as a Mancunian for fellow Fake American Jayne Atkinson in "Deadline."
  • Playing Against Type: Liz Gillies as the very kind and friendly Chloe Woods, in contrast to her previous mean girl roles on 13 and Victorious.
  • Reality Subtext: Neal discussing the sudden availability of gay marriage with Diana has elements of this, as Matt Bomer is gay and Happily Married, and Marsha Thomason isn't gay.
