White Collar star Tim DeKay is (temporarily) transferring from the FBI to the CIA for a guest appearance on Chuck, Entertainment Weekly reports.

DeKay, who plays FBI Agent Peter Burke on the USA series, will appear in the eighth episode of Chuck as Kieran Ryker, Sarah's stoic former CIA handler who makes her confront her past. (If Agent Burke is busy at Buy More, who is going to make sure Neal stays out of trouble back in New York?)
