I have Treat’s recurring role as Samuel Phelps/James Bennett from the series WHITE COLLAR, soon to end it’s six year run. Treat’s character was the father of the star of the show Neal Caffrey played by Matt Bomer. In my not-so-humble opinion, I think Treat did an amazing job with the role. He showed a level of complexity not really seen on television today. The twists and turns of this character were fascinating to watch and showed again why Treat is one of our national treasures. His final episode called In the Wind really culminated well, showing us Bennett’s inner motivation. I’m not sure with Treat’s current status on his new series ODYSSEY, whether it will allow him to return to WHITE COLLAR but I would really love to see him return, if not but to give closure to his character whether that be in the positive or negative. Here’s hoping. I have the screencaps from all the episodes plus some stills and behind the scenes images from selected episodes.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Treat has joined the cast of the NBC show ODYSSEY. The show is being filmed in Boston, which is advantageous for Treat since he lives in nearby Vermont. Not sure what this means in terms of his returning to both CHICAGO FIRE and WHITE COLLAR but we know he’ll be amazing in it.
Treat Williams to Co-Star in NBC Drama ‘Odyssey’
Treat Williams is staying put at NBC.
The Everwood alum, who has been recurring on Chicago Fire, has joined the cast of the network’s drama pilot Odyssey, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Odyssey centers on three families who are torn apart when a stranded female soldier (Pushing Daisies’ Anna Friel), a disillusioned corporate attorney (Nurse Jackie’s Peter Facinelli) and a disrespected political activist (The Carrie Diaries’ Jake Robinson) are pulled into the same shocking international military conspiracy.
Williams will play Col. Glen, a significant member of the cover-up of the assassination of the 24th Special Ops unit. His character is an expert at being simultaneously upbeat and duplicitous.
Williams, who is repped by APA and The Lasher Group, is a three-time Golden Globe nominee who picked up an Emmy mention for 1996’s The Late Shift. He will next be seen in Reaching for the Moon with Miranda Otto and Barefoot alongside Evan Rachel Wood and Scott Speedman. His credits include 127 Hours, Deadfall and critical favorite Everwood.
The Following’s Adam Armus and Kay Foster will pen the script and executive produce Odyssey alongside Peter Horton, who will direct the pilot and pen episodes should the project move forward. Nate Mooney, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Daniella Pineda and Elena Kampouris co-star.
