The internet is positively buzzing with the latest mountain of information on Pellant, the new season-spanning Bones villain!  Executive producers Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan have decided to cast Andrew Leeds as Christopher Pellant, who will make his debut in the last episode before Season 7 takes a break (doubtless much-needed by Emily Deschanel [Brennan]!) in January.

You might know Leeds from such shows as Dirt, House, and Castle (our nemesis for now!).  As for the villain’s name, we have to admit that we’re holding back some disappointment -- after all the foaming-at-the-mouth speculation we did two weeks ago, we’ll be kind of depressed if Pellant is just a run-of-the-mill surname!  In fact, you might even say we find this information...re: Pellant.

According to Give Me My Remote, this “extremely odd and fearless foe” will be in at least three episodes, including the one before the break.  “[I]t also depends on how many episodes we do,” said Hanson.

Wait a minute...what?  We thought there were going to be only thirteen episodes!  But lo and behold, GMMR reports Hanson contending that “[w]e’ll do somewhere between 13 and 18.”

Oh.  Em.  Gee.
