When it came time to relaunch EW's Pop Culture Personality Test as an EW.com interview gallery, we knew we wanted to start with David Boreanaz. After all, we've named Fox's Bones which returns tonight at 8 p.m. ET with a two-hour season premiere that takes FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (Boreanaz) and forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance ''Bones'' Brennan (Emily Deschanel) to London one of TV's 10 Hidden Gems.
And, we kinda heart him.
We didn't, however, know that we'd end up doing the interview in the spa waiting room at the Trump International Hotel & Tower the quietest place his publicist could find as a large tour group led by Ivanka Trump walked by. ''Bones, 8 o'clock, Wednesday nights. Best show on television,'' Boreanaz said. On loop. ''It's not procedural. It's driven by humor. Bones, 8 o'clock, Wednesday nights.'' Later, when we rode the elevator with Ivanka, she asked EW if we'd treated ''their guest'' nicely. We did. At least until he mentioned that he doesn't believe in DVRs.
