No Bones About It

by Angel Cohn April 14, 2008 4:30 pm
No <i>Bones</I> About It I've talked to David Boreanaz on a number of occasions and aside from the time that he didn't believe that my real name was Angel (long story), he's always been pleasant and laid back when we've chatted. This was also the case on Friday during his conference call with reporters where he was hyping the return of Bones (which has been moved, again, to a new night). He happily dished about his producing status and how he really doesn't care so much about the on-going serial killer storyline that's been happening this season, as it isn't the goal of the show. "For me, I've always maintained that the show is the relationship, maintained that the show is about the characters and I maintain that the show is about the two of us [Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel, and Booth, played by Boreanaz] learning through the crimes and that journey that we take. That, to me, is the most important part." He then happily gabbed about how he created this character and the research that he did.

All was going along so pleasantly and smoothly until one reporter asked Boreanaz if he thought that moving his show, which is on the bubble for returning, was a bad idea. Boreanaz jumped all over the guy. (It was awesome!) I've never heard him all fired up, even when he's asked Buffy/Angel questions he kind of bristles, but never gets heated. He wanted to know where said reporter had read that the show was on the bubble. "The reporter sheepishly admitted that he couldn't remember. "If you're saying our show is on the bubble, ''d love to know the source of that one. I mean you can't just say to me that the show is on the bubble and you said you read it and you don't know where it came from?" Phew! "But, I mean to answer your question, I don't think the show is on the bubble. It's a very successful show. We're a different show; we're a cult show that strives itself on relationship and we've proven if we're on Wednesday or Tuesday or Friday or even Monday that our fans will follow us." Amen to that. I have to say, most conference calls are pretty boring and straight forward, an irked David Boreanaz made this one so much more entertaining. And I'm on his side, I've been at many a junket or conference call where the reporters kind of throw out random questions that seem to come from nowhere just to get a rise and the actor just gives a pat answer. I'm actually a fan of his, and the show (and of course, Buffy/Angel), so maybe I'm a little bit biased, but I give Boreanaz kudos for calling the guy on it. Made me like him even more. Then he returned back to the call and politely answered everyone's questions and never brought it up again. That's some fine acting... or at the very least some talented anger management. I'd love to see more of this annoyed Boreanaz on the show. Hopefully he can use his producer status to work that in next season, because clearly it isn't a bubble show, so it should be back.
