Looks like agent Peter Burke is going to spend some time behind the cameras this season on the USA Network drama, "White Collar".

Tim DeKay, who plays FBI agent Burke, will be making his television directing debut with the episode, "Stealing Home," set to air February 2012. The episode, set around a "priceless stolen baseball," began shooting Tuesday in New York City, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's interesting because I look at it from an actor's point of view," DeKay told The Hollywood Reporter last week. "It confirms my thought about always relying on the director when he or she gives me a note. To a degree, they perhaps know the moment a little better than I do as an actor because [they've] been with the script much longer."

In more "White Collar" news, Hal Ozsan (90210, Californication) will appear as Gordon Taylor, a thief from the U.K. Gordon came to Manhattan to assemble an all-star group of thieves for his next big heist, which may include Neal (Matt Bomer) and Mozzie (Wille Garson). Looks like Neal might fall to temptation as he is once again reminded of what life could be like again as a con man.

"White Collar" airs its midseason finale (with guest star Beau Bridges) on Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST. But don't worry "White Collar" fans, the show will return for the second half of Season 3 in January.
