San Diego Comic-Con 2010: USA's White Collar Panel

Missed yesterday's panel at San Diego Comic-Con for USA's stylish and slick caper drama White Collar? No worries as we've got you covered.

Televisionary special correspondent Lissette Lira was on hand for yesterday's panel and offered up the following highlights from the much anticipated White Collar event.

Among the tibits, there are some seriously random insights into the workings of the White Collar cast and crew:

  • There was a cute video at the beginning of Willie Garson coming up with plans for the next caper... Since the cast was going to Comic-Con, they were going to steal the Tron Legacy footage... and he even had costumes for everyone.
  • Marsha Thomasson is very happy to be back. She prefers filming in NYC to Hawaii where there were bugs crawling all over her while she shot Lost. She didn't want to give out any more info about the music box when pressed.
  • Willie Garson kept calling Tiffani Thiessen "Tiffani Garson" every time he asked her a question.
  • Matt has fun filming his stunts. He hit the wall hard last season on the first take of him jumping onto that bakery awning and the crew were all stunned but he smiled and said he was fine. This season, we'll see him swinging in a new stunt.
  • Tiffani Thiessen had been filming her scenes in LA,since she was preggers (hellooo, it was so obvious as the blue screen looked bad). She's flying back to New York next week to join the gang again in filming.
  • On the web there was a lot of talk about Kate being Elizabeth's sister and Jeff Eastin said, no, it's not true: the two actresses just happened to look alike.
  • Matt Nix, the creator of Burn Notice challenged Jeff and the White Collar writing team to paintball with the Burn Notice writers and Jeff accepted.
  • Matthew Bomer loves doing Arnold Schwarzenneger impressions.
  • Tim DeKay said they had to get a new dog because the old one would decide to move in the middle of takes, he shed a lot, and he was a loud licker.

Random, no? Televisionary BFF Lissette Lira also managed to shoot some video of the White Collar panel, which can be found below.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
