In honor of Bones’ return tonight with a two-hour season premiere (Fox, 8 p.m. ET), I sat down with David Boreanaz yesterday and resurrected the EW Pop Culture Personality Test. Click here to read about how he used to pretend that he was Craig Sheffer to get into bars in 1994 (possibly my favorite story ever), what he asked Farrah Fawcett when he wrote her a fan letter as a child (we think he was joking?), and why he doesn’t believe in TiVo or DVRs (fascinating… but wrong). He also went off on Heroes, a.k.a. “the most overrated show on TV,” and Fox, for giving Fringe the Tuesday night pairing with House that he clearly wanted — so that’s enjoyable, too. As for this “weirdest place” that he’s ever done an interview? In need of a quiet location at the Trump International Hotel & Tower, we were sent to the spa waiting room. The soothing music almost lulled him to sleep on a comfy cream leather couch. Luckily, there was just enough foot traffic to keep him awake — and laughing. He greeted every hotel employee that passed through and told one robed woman that she’d made a good choice when she grabbed an orange from the fruit platter. (Though he’d later steal a banana…) When Ivanka Trump walked by, leading a large tour of suits, he repeated “Bones, 8 o’clock, Wednesday nights, best show on television” on loop. (One woman said she was now going to program the show on her DVR — ha!)
If you’re in the mood for more Bones talk, check out the The Writers in the Bonecast, a podcast hosted by Lindsey Patten of the ABY forum and Wendy Young of Obsessed With Bones. They invited myself and Jamie Frevele of The Huffington Post to participate in a 90-minute rumble with them last weekend. We covered the season-three finale, the Hodgela storyline (snooze), whether we want to see Zack return in Season 4 (cut and run, I say!), and if/when/how Booth and Brennan should get together.
