TV Star DeKay Gets Le Moyne National Attention
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … Tune in to hit USA Network series “White Collar” beginning Tuesday, Feb. 9, and you’ll see one of the stars – Le Moyne alum Tim DeKay – proudly displaying College garb during the hour-long show. posted on: 2/9/2010
DeKay, who graduated from Le Moyne in 1985, has maintained a close connection with Le Moyne since leaving the Heights, returning to campus several times over the years to work with performing arts students. His passion for the College is illustrated by an offer he recently made to feature clothing with his alma mater’s name emblazoned across it during various scenes. He was sent numerous items – hats, shirts, sweatshirts, etc. – and plans to work several of them into upcoming episodes.
The first episode Le Moyne will get this unique national exposure in is titled “Home Invasion” and debuts Tuesday, Feb. 9, at 10 p.m., with repeat airings the following dates and times: Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 1 a.m. and midnight; Thursday, Feb. 11, at 11 p.m.; Sunday, Feb. 14, at 1 a.m. and 9 a.m., and; Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 12:05 a.m. and 7 p.m. In the episode titled “Bottleneck,” which will debut later in February, DeKay will wear a Le Moyne shirt. The show was just picked up for a second season, so future placements are likely.
As Peter Burke in “White Collar,” DeKay (according to the show’s Web site), “… plays a no-nonsense federal agent in the FBI's White Collar Crime Unit who believes in earning success the old-fashioned way, with perseverance and hard work.” (Learn more about "White Collar" here.)
DeKay has a long list of credits during a successful television career. Among his most notable work was playing “Bizzarro Jerry” in a 1995 episode of Seinfeld and co-starring in the HBO series "Carnivale" from 2003 to 2005. (See a listing of career credits here.)
