Mike Dupod as Sergei in White Collar episode Ice Breaker. primary investigation, that of Moscow émigré/hockey enthusiast Sergei (Canadian Mike Dupod, whom some may recognize from his home country’s grisly drama Durham County).
As Neal so literarily observes, Sergei has the “Crime and Punishment” of rap sheets back home, and he appears to be illegally forging passports stateside to help conceal the identities of his fellow transplanted baddies.
He also lords over a kept woman, talented ice skater Katya (The Americans’ Annet Mahendru, clearly destined for big things, hopefully beyond playing kept Russian woman… also, do they and WC share casting directors?), and wearily accepts Peter and Neal’s cover story that they’re a coach and agent, respectively, interested in working with her.
