Meet Bones’s Brand New Squintern — Played By a Veteran TV Actor!
Get ready for some fresh blood on Bones! And no, we're not talking about the gooey red stuff that Brennan(Emily Deschanel) loves so dearly — our favorite show is getting a new squintern!
Back in November, executive producer Stephen Nathan told TV Line that he was developing a new squint, mostly because of the scheduling issues with the regular cast during pilot season. In the words of creator Hart Hanson, "it behooves us to have one more in our quiver."
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), the new squintern isn't a girl — which means Daisy (Carla Gallo) is still the only lady squint in The Jeffersonian! Instead, Frasier's Brian Klugman (who wrote and co-directed the Bradley Cooper thriller The Words) is joining the cast as Oliver Wells, a brilliant nerd with four degrees. Oh, and bonus — this guys isn't scared of Brennan, unlike the rest of the geek squad.
Are you excited to see Oliver light up the screen, or would you prefer the new intern to be a woman? Hit the comments!
