Caroline Dhavernas' last show on TV, the cult favorite Wonderfalls, was killed after just 13 episodes. So, it's not surprising that she wasn't exactly eager to go back to series television.
"It was really too bad because it was such a different and quirky show and the fans loved it," Dhavernas says of the Bryan Fuller-produced series that followed a philosophy graduate working in a gift shop where the wax figurines urge her to help people in need.
Is Off the Map more than Grey's Anatomy in the jungle?
Six years of bit parts in Canadian films and guest roles on crime procedurals passed. Then, while on a beach in Bali, she read the script for Off the Map, a near-surefire hit from the team behind Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice. The show was a medical drama set in the South American jungle.
"[Going to Bali] was the first time that I had traveled on my own, for a whole month," she says. "That's also one of the reasons why Off the Map appealed to me, because I was on the beach surrounded by coconuts and sand and ocean. I was reading something that took place exactly in that setting and was like...

What a difference eight years makes. Back then, White Collar's con-man extraordinaire Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) was a little more blue collar, FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) was itching to collar him, and street swindler Mozzie (Willie Garson) wore a piece. And we don't mean a gun.
"I remember walking past the hair and makeup room and seeing Willie in a different toupee every time and just dying laughing," says Bomer. "My favorite was the 'Shaggy' look from Scooby Doo."
But tonight's White Collar episode — which flashes back to 2003 — explores deeper roots than Mozzie's. Over a six-pack and a bottle of red wine, Peter and Neal discuss their most pressing case: catching Vincent Adler (Andrew McCarthy), the man behind Kate's death, the music-box mystery and Mozzie's shooting....

"It deals with relationships, parents, death, illness, mental health issues, the consequences of drug use and sexual activity," he writes. "It is just that these are characterized from the point of view of the many young people who write the show and has a very straightforward approach to their experiences; it tries to tell the truth. Sometimes that truth can be a little...
