David BoreanazDavid Boreanaz - "Bones" Tv Series - Guest Directors for Bones and The Office
Monday 4 December 2006, by Webmaster
Just when you were beginning to wonder if it was just a rumor or a premature announcement, last week’s episode of "Bones" concluded with a preview for the next episode promoting the fact that the episode is directed by former star of "The X-Files," David Duchovny. FOX’s forensic crime drama centers on a renowned anthropologist who helps FBI Agent Seeley Booth, played by David Boreanaz ("Buffy" and "Angel"), solve difficult murder mysteries with the help of a lab team working their areas of expertise in advanced areas of science at the Smithsonian.
The application of science to mystery with a woman (Temperance Brennan played by Emily Deschanel) covering the scientific and medical angle and her male partner with a passion and quest for answers, especially involving the FBI and on FOX, shouldn’t be too far a stretch for Duchovny, as this description comes close to his old home in such a role on the same network as FBI agent Fox Mulder. The episode Duchovny is directing will cover issues of Brennan’s father who is currently still missing in action and has been since she was a teenager. Entitled "Judas on a Pole," it is set to air Wednesday, December 13th at 8pm.
Meanwhile, on the other end of the spectrum, TV Guide broke news about a different kind of director taking a different kind of guest spot directing for NBC’s successful comedy, "The Office." Having seemingly nothing in common with the subject matter of the show for which he will be a guest at the helm, J.J. Abrams (of "Alias" and "Lost" creator/director/producer/writer fame) will be making time in January to direct an episode of the Emmy Award-winning sitcom. Abrams apparently has no details to offer, or perhaps that he is able to release at this time, besides the month it will be shooting. It should certainly prove interesting since Abrams is known for action and mystery/suspense, not comedy; least of all, the dry and witty humor of NBC’s adaptation of the popular British series.
