The Fox Fall Press Junket: Dramas

I'll admit it, I've never watched an episode of Bones in my life. After this junket, that will change. Not only did I get a copy of the latest book in the series the show is based on in my Fox goodie steamer trunk, but I also got to meet three cast members from the show, and they were like the nicest people ever. If Fox ever needs to raise Bones's ratings, I suggest sending these three people door-to-door to individually charm every potential viewer.

TJ Thyne was not just the first person from Bones I interviewed -- he was the first person on the whole junket I interviewed. I couldn't have asked for a better first subject. He even took the recorder and held it under his mouth for the best sound.

Sara M: You are from Boston, right?

TJ Thyne: Yeah, from Boston.

Sara M: Go Patriots.

TJ Thyne: For me, in terms of sports right now, it's all about the Red Sox.

Sara M: So I'll ask you about Bones right now, but if we have time later, I'd love to ask you about your guest-starring role on Walker, Texas Ranger.

TJ Thyne: Oh my god, Walker, Texas Ranger! No, we gotta go straight for that.

Sara M: You played a character named The Wizard.

TJ Thyne: That's so funny -- The Wizard, that's right!

Sara M: I saw that and was like, "I gotta ask him about this. That show is incredible."

TJ Thyne: I lived in Dallas for a while when I was in high school, and that's one of the shows that shot there. I forget the other actor who came in for that arc, but we had a good time. It was neat, because actually, to come back to L.A. -- I had been working and I was doing some films out here, and then went back to Dallas to shoot Walker, Texas Ranger. Oh my god, that's one of those, like, you see it on your résumé and you kinda cringe a little.

Sara M: No, no, you should be proud.

TJ Thyne: Oh, well, yeah, you have to be.

Sara M: Did Walker beat you up?

TJ Thyne: No, I died.

Sara M: Oh no! Did Walker shoot you?

TJ Thyne: No, I -- I think my girlfriend shot me or something. I died in Walker's arms. It was kinda sweet.

Sara M: Oh, you were Walker's friend?

TJ Thyne: No, I was the bad kid, but he was the nice cop that he --

Sara M: He was trying to reform you!

TJ Thyne: He was trying to, and then in the last moments, I kinda reached up for her face and then I died. Which was kinda funny because my hand actually dropped into the actor's lap, and so my dying moment was me with my hand in this girl's lap. So, it was pretty bad. They don't do a lot of takes at Walker, Texas Ranger.
