White Collar resumed its fourth season last night on USA. The premiere started with Neal’s father (real name: James Bennett) telling his son what led to their family entering witness protection decades earlier.

Bennett is played by Treat Williams who recently participated in a conference call with reporters. Here are the highlights:

On what’s most difficult about playing his character. “Eight-page monologues explaining my entire history with Neal. There's a lot of long walks on country roads in Vermont let me tell you.”

Tonight White Collar fans finally got acquainted with Neal Caffrey's enigmatic father, James Bennett, played by Treat Williams.

He's no newcomer to the series - his first appearance on the show was in the season's seventh episode, "Compromising Positions," which aired in August. Tonight's episode was his fourth guest-star credit, and he spo...

Sidney Lumet: 1924-2011: The movies have lost one of their magical masters. Dramatic wunderkind Director Sidney Lumet, who sadly died on Saturday April 9, 2011 at the age of 86 after suffering from lymphoma, was a classic old school filmmaker. Making interesting stories and the characters within his focus, Lumet was the maestro behind such work as "Network," "The Verdict" and "Dog Day Afternoon," with his films tallying an impressive thirty-six nominations and whopping thirty-three wins. And even though he never won an Oscar for his amazing directing (he got the 'Honorary Award' in 2005)...

Horror/Comedies: A Growing Cult Phenomenon Of The Last 20 Years

10/21/2009 9:42am EDT
Over the last 20 years cinema has changed significantly with regards to the horror genre. Modern horror/comedies like "Zombieland" are able to thrive in theaters due to a fan base built by cult cinema.

During the late 1980s, jaded audiences grew tired of the standard monster movies and slasher flicks that were being done to death. As the era of Reagan conservatism came to a close, fans desensitized to the violence of horror films were looking for something to make blood and guts exciting again. Horror-philes had already whet their appetite for a different type of horror movie after se...

TV Spotlight: 'Brothers & Sisters' Producer Greg Berlanti

2/29/2008 1:00pm EST
Brothers & Sisters
Dick Wolf, David E. Kelley, Shonda Rhimes and Joss Whedon have all done it. You may be wondering what IT is exactly. They've all at some time point created a spin-off or expanded their TV show into a franchise (see Law & Order). They've all done crossovers between their shows, if you count the backdoor Private Practice pilot on Grey's Anatomy last season.

But those crossovers would not have been possible if they didn't all share one common trait: all of them are showrunners who have, in recent memory, shepherded multiple television shows, sometimes across different channels.
