The Fox Fall Press Junket: Dramas

Sara M: That's because Chuck Norris nails every line in the first take.

TJ Thyne: I gotta say, that guy is such a genuinely good human being. Like, in real life, you meet him and you're like, "He's for real nice!" He's really, like, really kind. And he's got his whole family working for him on that show.

Sara M: Yeah, the credits are packed with Norrises.

TJ Thyne: It's definitely a change being Jack Hodgins on Bones from being The Wizard on Walker, Texas Ranger.

Sara M: Yeah, you get to be a doctor on Bones, right?

TJ Thyne: With three advanced degrees in entomology, botany, and mineralogy. He's a smart one.

Sara M: The thing about entomology is, it's bugs.

TJ Thyne: Yes it is.

Sara M: How do you feel about bugs in real life?

TJ Thyne: I hate them.

Sara M: Do you get asked that a lot?

TJ Thyne: Yeah, people think you can either deal with them or not deal with them, so.

Sara M: I have a hard time imagining anyone who likes bugs. How do you act that side of Jack Hodgins? Do you just channel thoughts of an interest you actually do have?

TJ Thyne: It's very funny -- as an actor, I don't know how it happens -- we actors are such a bizarre species. Like, I'm not big on heights, but if I'm playing a character that's gotta jump off a building, I have no problem doing it. But in real life I could never do it. Yeah, the real-life bug guy -- his name's Charlie and he brings in all the bugs -- he's a trip, man. He loves it. And Jack loves it, Jack's got them crawling all over him and everything and I just, I flinch, man, I'm just like "Blech!" right after the take.

Sara M: But during the take, you're fine.

TJ Thyne: During the take, he can kiss 'em on the lips. Jack loves it, so, I gotta drop into it. It's weird. You know who's really funny with the bugs is Tamara Taylor, she's cracks me up with the bugs, because she can't stand the bugs. So we'll have maggots, and Tamara will always be like, "It's moving! It's moving!" during takes and stuff. She cracks me up.

Sara M: Have you had to handle tarantulas yet?

TJ Thyne: Uh, we've had some different bugs, but we haven't actually done a tarantula yet. Have we? No, I don't think so. We've had other eight-legged things. I'm sure the tarantulas are coming, though.

Sara M: Season Five!

TJ Thyne: Season Five: The Tarantula Years. It's pretty exciting going into Season Three, though, it's like, to actually have, you know, you've gotten to know this character as a bug and slime guy from the other seasons, but now in Season Three you know him as this guy who's madly in love with Angela --
