As much as we’re looking forward to Bones returning on March 10, we’re equally anxious to hear what Angela’s kooky dad wants to name her baby after having it coming to him in a dream. This is the same guy who gave Angela the middle name “Pearly Gates” in honor of his guitar, Miss Pearly Gates, so we can only imagine how “creative” he’ll be with a first name.
Billy Gibbons, the actor/ZZ Top guitarist who plays Angela’s bearded papa recently spoke to TV Guide magazine about his role in the upcoming episode “The Killer in the Crosshairs.”
“[To say] that I’m going to make demands might be an understatement,” he said. “There will be a high measure of conflict that will unfold between the mother and father.”
Billy has learned that fans don’t like it when Hodgins and Angela fight. “I recently got stopped on the street and told, ‘Hey, man, you better take it easy on those kids of yours. You’re getting a little rough on them.’”
Even though he describes the cast as “a swell bunch of folks,” Billy — who has appeared on Two and a Half Men and CSI: Miami — is looking to join another show soon. “I’m engaging with Thom Beers, the head man at Original Productions [Deadliest Catch], about a new series called Whisker Wars. [They] have categories like Most Inventive Mustache Shape and Longest Beard. I said, ‘Gee whiz, I think I can handle that one.’”
Hmm, wonder if he means handle…bar?
