Bridget ReganEXCLUSIVE: Neal Caffrey is getting a new love interest. Legend Of The Seeker alumna Bridget Regan has booked a 10-episode arc on USA’s White Collar. She will play Rebecca Lowe, a beautiful rare book scholar who becomes entangled with Neal’s (Matt Bomer) latest con, and then ultimately Neal himself. In the Season 4 finale in March, Neal parted ways with on-again, off-again girlfriend, Sara Ellis (Hilarie Burton). Regan, repped by TMT Entertainment and Gersh, recently starred in ABC’s hour-long pilot Murder In Manhattan and recurred on the CW’s Beauty And The Beast. White Collar is currently in production on Season 5, which will premiere in October.
