Until he won the role of a veteran FBI agent paired by necessity with a con artist partner in the hit series "White Collar" (USA Network, 2009-14), actor Tim DeKay was best known for playing Bizarro Jerry, the sincere and impeccably mannered doppelganger of Jerry Seinfeld in two episodes of the comedian's long-running NBC sitcom. DeKay honed his craft in regional and off-Broadway theatre and paid his journeyman dues on episodic television playing lawyers, doctors, detectives, corporate executives and the occasional Machiavellian schemer. Shots at recurring roles on weekly series came with HBO's "Carnivàle" (2003-05) and "Tell Me You Love Me" (2007-09), both of which hit the airwaves with considerable buzz only to fold after two seasons. Dividing his time between the stage, television and the big screen, DeKay was seen in supporting roles in Tim Hunter's "Control" (2004), Victor Salva's "Peaceful Warrior" (2006) and the 2008 "Get Smart" remake starring Steve Carell before he returned to primetime as one-half of the buddy equation on "White Collar." His collegiate handsomeness agreeably coarsening as he neared age 50, DeKay brought a sense of experience and gravitas to the role of federal agent Peter Burke, capping but hardly closing the book on the career of a seasoned character actor with a leading man's good looks.
