It seems like just yesterday we were introduced to the cast of the Bones spin-off series, The Finder. And now we’re getting word from Entertainment Weekly that Geoff Stults’s (Walter) female sidekick, Ike (Saffron Burrows), is already getting kicked to the curb.

Fox made the decision to cut the British actress after fans had trouble understanding her thick cockney accent in the pilot episode. No word yet on who will be cast as the bawdy bartender, though if Walter gets a love interest, as reported, perhaps Fox is considering axing the character altogether.

Guess we’ll have to wait until winter, when The Finder begins airing in Bones’ absence to accommodate Emily Deschanel’s (Brennan) pregnancy, to know for certain.
