As is her wont, Conlin almost immediately jumped into baby-talk. Turns out that the formidable actor playing Baby Hodgins is in fact a pair of actors, as Bones has hired twins to take on the job. “He is so cute,” Conlin gushes, “and he smells really good.” Not sure which twin she’s talking about...hopefully both of them!
We may be a little leery of the “dueling pregnancies” storyline, but Conlin has no complaints: “It’s been so much fun for me as an actress and a friend [to Emily Deschanel].” She promises that the pregnancy angle will be “lighter and more comedic,” with lots of talk about hormones and whatnot (gentlemen, now’s a good time to make more popcorn).
Of course, we can leave it to charmer/goofball Geoff Stults (Walter Sherman on Bones spinoff, The Finder) to upset the interview’s happy equilibrium when he strolled by and blithely suggested that Angela and Walter get together! And did Conlin stick up for slighted TV husband Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne)? Absolutely not: “That would be fine with me.” The horror!
