The Fox Fall Press Junket: Dramas

Sara M: Yeah, the second season ended with you guys getting married, but then not really.

TJ Thyne: Almost, yeah. It was close.

Sara M: So going into Season Three, you get to play a character who's more of an actual person. We've seen the quirky surface side of Jack, and now we're seeing what's beneath that.

TJ Thyne: Yeah, that's really well said, I mean, you kind of sink into this vulnerable truth of a real human being as opposed to just a façade of a doctor on a show. It's nice, and you get that real human element as opposed to just the forensics. The forensics is fascinating, but I think what's successful about Bones is that fine line that it walks between the character relationships as well as the forensics.

Sara M: You're sort of getting to know your character along with the rest of the audience.

TJ Thyne: Yeah, exactly. And still discovering things along with the audience. I mean, there's so much of Jack that we still don't know, and these characters that we still don't know. I mean, Jack's got all this anger from his early days, and his parents are dead and he's this gazillionaire, but we really don't know what it's all stemming from, so Season Three, you get to learn more about that stuff, which is good. And you get to see these characters kinda having a good time together again, too. Like, all of them in the lab doing their thing. And Brennan and Booth are off getting deeper into more intense cases --

Sara M: Yes, there's a serial killer roaming around this season.

TJ Thyne: A cannibalistic serial killer, yes.

Sara M: Oh, he's a cannibal, too?

TJ Thyne: Yeah, it's intense.

Sara M: Have you gotten interested in forensic science since working on this show?

TJ Thyne: Yeah, I'm not a science guy but -- I forget who on the show it was, but we were talking about this one day -- you know, we all go out and hang out as a cast, we're all real close in real life -- and I forget who was really big on science and stuff like that, but for me it was never about that. So you have to, I have to really do my homework on this show, I have to sit down in front of a computer every night and figure out what I'm actually saying and where it's coming from and how to say it. So it's definitely a challenge, but fun nonetheless.

Sara M: And to wrap this up, what is your favorite bone in the human body?

TJ Thyne: Um...I don't know...what's yours?
