David Boreanaz (Booth) is getting a lot of buzz lately in light of his recent feature film, The Mighty Macs. Considering how Boreanaz’s sportsfan status has bled into Booth’s character, it doesn’t surprise us at all that he’d land a big-screen role as a former NBA referee. And in her report on Macs, Amy Longsdorf of Morning Call doesn’t appear too surprised, either... but she did get some nice info on Bones in the midst of her coverage!
Namely, there’s this delicious tidbit about Booth and Angela (Michaela Conlin). While the two characters interact only infrequently on Bones, it appears that the two actors have a lot to say to each other — including some fightin’ words!
“It’s always fun to be on the set with Michaela,” Boreanaz said, “and throw down some Allentown and Philly love. I always tease her about [Allentown] being famous for gymnastics.” When they’re not trading hometown jabs, Boreanaz continued, they’re developing a valuable director-actor relationship: “I really like working with [Conlin] as a director. I’m always challenging her to push her character even further.”
Boreanaz also took a moment to bust out some major Bones pride, claiming that the show is “the tipping point for procedurals.” According to DB, Bones really set the high-water mark for crime dramas, with every other network subsequently shooting for a “relationship-driven” analogue.
And with Fox considering an eighth season for Bones, we can’t exactly dispute Boreanaz’s take here! Imitation is the best form of flattery, after all. Long live Bones!
