Good news for former One Tree Hill actress Hilarie Burton.
The hottie has just been promoted to a series regular on USA’s White Collar.
Burton, who had made some guest appearances as an insurance investigator on the show, will now be featured regularly on Season 3.
And of course she couldn’t be happier as she had previously hinted of wanting to be on the show, saying that Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay “are so sincere in their generosity and their kindness, I’d stay forever, man.”
As for her current role, it’s a far stretch from her One Tree Hill days. Hilarie adds:
“If you want to see me having a good time and being, you know, clever and quick-witted, this is the place to do it.”
