Lena Headey, who plays Queen Cersei on HBO's Game of Thrones, is extending her reign to the USA Network, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
On Friday, USA cast Headey in an upcoming episode of the action-drama White Collar. She'll play Sally, a skilled hacker suspected of a major cyber crime who "gets close" to Mozzie (Willie Garson). Gets close? Does this mean what we think it means? Will Mozzie finally get some love?
White Collar exclusive: Meet Mozzie's childhood mentor
The series is already giving Mozzie love of a different sort this season when the show delves into his past. White Collar creator and executive producer Jeff Eastin tweeted a photo of a young Mozzie on Tuesday with the warning, "This is adorable." And it is. As TV Guide previously reported, Ghostbusters star Ernie Hudson will play Mozzie's childhood mentor.
Headey's character will not appear in the same episode as Hudson. There's no word yet if she'll appear as a brunette -- as she's done during most of her career and in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles -- or if she will sport her blonde Game of Thrones look.
