‘White Collar’ Stars and Designers Remember Willie Garson – deadline
the United States White collar was conceived as a two-person story – a story of a suave thief, Neal, played by Matt Bomer, and an FBI agent, Peter, played by Tim DeKay, who form an unlikely partnership to solve crimes. But it was Neal’s genius, and paranoid, crook Mozzie’s best friend, played by Willie Garson, who regularly stole the show.

Today, following news of Garson’s death at 57, his criminal partner Bomer posted a moving tribute on Instagram alongside a photo gallery of the two over the years.
“I still haven’t thought about a world without you – where I can’t call you when I need to laugh or be inspired,” Bomer wrote.
Willie Garson remembered as “delicious actor” and “friend who loved me at worst”

He remembered the last time he had seen his friend.
“The last thing you did when we said goodbye was take your mask off (I hate covid), smile and wink at me,” Bomer said. He ended his message with, “Save me a seat, because you know I want to be at your table up there.” “
DeKay also mourned Garson’s death on Instagram.
White collar creator Jeff Eastin bade Garson farewell on Twitter, saying, “You were the best of us.”

The show’s female frontman, Tiffani Thiessen, said she was heartbroken.
NBCUniversal, which USA Network aired White collar, wrote: “No matter what project he was on, Willie was always a fan favorite. Nowhere was that truer than on White collar, where he took the character of Mozzie, an outcast conspiracy theorist, and made him adorable to the core. We will miss him.”
