Wednesday 31 October 2007, by Webmaster
Will Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth ever get together?
David Boreanaz stars as Booth, but he’s even more tight-lipped on the topic than the operative he plays on the Fox show “Bones” (Tuesday night at 8 on WFXT, Ch. 25).
He and co-star Emily Deschanel (Bones) “work very hard on the characters and their relationship with one another and with each script on the weekends,” Boreanaz said. “So we find time in order to create that relationship and know very much a lot about our personal lives. That’s what we kind of strive for each episode.
“We want to dive into our characters’ relationship and manifest it in a way that’s going to take us some place new and challenging, but (we also know) when to pull back. I think that’s our key and that’s probably been the growth from the beginning of the show. It’s a very interesting tree that’s grown.”
Bones and Booth have begun to see a therapist, a plot development Boreanaz loves.
“These two have to go to therapy in order to deal with their everyday working lives, which I think is very funny, and that’s never been seen on television, which I think is unique,” he said.
Tonight, both Bones and Booth don Halloween costumes and, of course, end up on the trail of a killer. Earlier this season, the duo investigated a crime that involved people who liked to dress up as animals.
“These situations allow the pair to stretch the boundaries a little bit further,” said Boreanaz, who serves as a producer on the show. “I like putting them in situations where they could be a little vulnerable and open to play and environments that dictate a funny story line. Just maintaining a really smart, fun, sexy relationship is my key.”
The Buffalo, N.Y., native also stars in the upcoming film “Our Lady of Victory” and provides the voice of Green Lantern in the upcoming animated film“Justice League: The New Frontier,” but “Bones” remains his priority.
“We’re so blessed to have such great, fantastic executives that keep their doors open so we can go in and talk to them about our characters, and talk to them about ideas that we may possibly have.”
To that end, Boreanaz would love to have James Garner on the show as his grandfather. He also hopes that this season viewers learn more about Booth’s brother. But he wants to keep the tone of the show on the lighter side.
“The one thing I don’t really want to do is dive into his painful experience being a sniper and all that procedural stuff,” he said. “I’m more concerned about the relationship with the characters. My relationship with Bones and her relationship with me.”
