Diahann will once again share screen time with Billy Dee Williams. They went to the same school back in the days and they acted together in Dynasty and Lonesome Dove: The Series. Now they both will appear in White Collar. The following is taken from a new interview with Joe Henderson, one of the writers of the series:
O’Shea: Diahann Carroll is a classic actress with a rich history in TV and film, how did she come to be part of White Collar–and how much do the show’s writers enjoy writing for her character?
Henderson: Diahann is awesome. I don’t know the exact story of her casting—I believe Jeff wanted someone classy who tied Neal to the Rat Pack kind of world and we were lucky enough to get her. We have an upcoming episode with her and Billy Dee Williams that plays with that world. It’s fantastic, and has a wonderfully charming scene where she and [series lead Matt] Bomer [who plays Neal Caffrey] sing a duet. Plus, BILLY DEE WILLIAMS! I mean, how cool is that?
Diahann did a total of seven guest appearances on the Dynasty spin-off series, The Colbys. Here's a look at her final appearance in the first season of The Colbys - there's a marriage taking place... (If you're following Dynasty on DVD and don't want spoilers, please do NOT watch this clip!). Only a few glimpses of Diahann, but still.
