David Boreanaz has gotten to do a lot this season, from directing two episodes to tracking down a sniper as Special Agent Seeley Booth. There’s no denying he’s had a good year — but the busy actor recently explained to Assignment X why next season should be even more fun.
Season 6: “I went into the season pretty much hoping for the best on all levels, and it’s pleasantly surprised me. I think the writing’s been very strong, I think the relationship has been very interesting and the fact that it’s not very heavy B and B [Brennan and Booth] right now, they were kind of separated with the triangle with the relationship with [Hannah]. I think it’s good, because we can always go back to good old-fashioned B and B cases, which is what the show is about. But we’ve done some great shows and I’ve enjoyed directing so far.”
On American Idol: “Is it great to be going up after American Idol? Sure, we get more publicity. Why not? It means they’re going to have to do publicity for the show. That’s the best thing for us. You can’t say anything bad about that. I don’t feel any pressure — I don’t really think about those kinds of things. I know our audience is there, will always be there, and if we can get more eyes to it, I would love to see that and I would love to see the show grow even more.”
The sniper arc: “That’ll be a serious couple of episodes, but we’ll always have those tongue-in-cheek moments. We’ll get back to those episodes where it’s just the two of us [Booth and Brennan] solving crimes. I think once we’re over this other relationship arc and the sniper arc, I think next season will be an ‘up’ arc.”
On his son and the sniper: “We’ll see how the sniper can affect my relationship with my son. There will be some heavy moments, but we’re getting back to more light-hearted stuff.”
What’s next? “I’ve got a new [high school basketball drama] coming out April first called The Mighty Macs. It’s been picked up through Columbia distribution. Tim Chambers directed that, that’s coming out, I’m excited about that.”
Any talk of Season 7? “I don’t know. I don’t look that far ahead. I just work on what we’re doing now. I always have. That’s my motto.”
