'Chuck' scoop: 'White Collar' star to play Sarah's handler -- EXCLUSIVE

Agent swap! White Collar star Tim DeKay is set to play a different kind of government agent on NBC’s Chuck.

DeKay, who’s an FBI agent on the USA drama, will guest star in the eighth episode of Chuck‘s final season as “Kieran Ryker,” Sarah’s former CIA handler — a stoic, unflappable man who forces her to “confront her past and the choices she’s made.”

The actor joins a host of geek-friendly guest names for Chuck‘s home stretch, including Mark Hamill as a villain, Carrie Anne-Moss as a love interest for Casey, Community actor Danny Pudi and comic book legend Stan Lee.

Remember Chuck, along with new NBC series Grimm, were pushed back a week from their original premiere date, and and are now both set to debut on Friday, Oct. 28. The premieres are  being billed as part of two nights of Halloween-themed programming, starting with special episodes of NBC’s Thursday night comedies, Community, Parks and Recreations, The Office, and Whitney.

    So wait Matt Bomer and NOW Tim Dekay? Sarah sure loves White Collar men! #Chuck

    • Ace

      No kidding! I wonder if she dated Sharif Atkins at some point, too!

      • Kate

        I know, too bad Blaine is y dead (especially since you just know that it was likely this guy was Blaine’s handler at the same time).

      • SirLizard

        Bomer’s character on “Chuck” was Bryce Larkin, not Blaine.

    • Elizabeth

      There better be a Matt Bomer inside joke…

      • lee

        maybe a flashback :D :P

      • Marianne

        I agree! They HAVE to have some sort of shout out to Bryce/Matt! Can’t wait until the 28th!

  • Carol


    • JimW

      Would rather have an actor I like to watch do it than some nobody, happy for Tim!

    • what

      Like who Carol, YOU????

    • Ciara

      I’m sure they’d have hired an actor who needs work if the actor played it well.
      Tim’s an awesome actor…actors (mostly) earn their roles. I’m not saying Miley Cyrus would have been cast in The Last Song if she had never become a huge star, because frankly she is horrible, TERRIBLE actress, but Joseph Gordon Levitt could sitll have gotten his role in Spielbergs upcomming drama Lincoln even if he hadn’t proven for more than a decade now that he is one of the best actors out there…

    • Lars

      Bitter much?

  • Aura Lee

    I am really sad that this is the last season on Chuck but so happy that it’s shaping up to be the most awesome season of television ever.

    • elena

      Ditto that. With all these guest stars, Morgan with the intersect AND Chuck/Sarah finally over the will they-won’t they hump…it looks like an awesome season.

  • Berlin guy

    My god,only thing better would be if they brought the gorgeous Bomer back as Bryce for a few eps

  • Sindy

    I love Tim Dekay! Glad he will be on chuck. Now the should bring back Mr. Larkin. Matt was great on the show.

    • Lijo

      i agree. i miss bryce larkin too.

  • Samson

    Please refrain from saying that this is Chuck’s final season.
    Let me live in denial a little longer.

    • Mr. Foe

      Saaay what? It’s Chuck’s final season? lol

      • Lisa

        i feel weird to be happy that it is Chuck’s final season and that they flat out said so back in May.

        Most of the story lines had been played out so Chuck will go out with a bang rather than a wimper.

        I’m glad about Tim Dekay but I want Matt Bomer back whether it is flash backs or well anything to have more Matt Bomer.

  • Dan

    Good choice, I like Tim DeKay on White Collar!
    I just hope they wont make him into a bad guy who used Sarah or something.
    They have used the “CIA abuses its power for the greater good” to much already. Why would their agents keep working for an organisation that abuses them?

  • Amy

    great news! i love Tim DeKay

  • Lindsay

    Bring back Bryce Larkin (Matt Bomer) in the final season! That would be fantastic!

    • Lily

      I agree. Bring back Bryce Larkin. Maybe he can come back with amnesia and be even more of a super spy. Anyone knows how to tweet Bryce’s return in Twitter ?
      a hastag right? #BringBryceBack

  • PJM

    Tim will play “a stoic, unflappable man.” Gee, I hope he can pull that off. Sounds a lot different than playing Peter Burke. :-D

  • Rich

    Need Bryce back for final and no one could play Bryce better than Matt Bomer so get him back, make it work!!

  • desmond

    How did i miss that Abed was gonna be on Chuck?!

  • Elizabeth

    Yay! I love Tim on White Collar!

    Now if they could only bring back Bryce…haha.

  • Vince

    Hes fine.
    Now they had one former 007 Tim Dalton, Roger Moore well the man is over 80 so.
    Now George Lazeby might be nice, No way for Sean, retired and doesn’t do TV anyway. PB still too big for TV

  • Lijo

    Tim Dekay is the man! But i still wish they brought back bryce larkin…he was a godamn hero.
