This Thursday’s “Finder” episode of Bones serves as a backdoor pilot for a potential new Fox show costarring Oscar nominee Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile) as Leo Knox, the legal advisor, bodyguard, and best friend to Geoff Stults’ Walter Sherman, a former military policeman who can locate anything and anyone. If “Finder” — also featuring Saffron Burrows as Ike Latulippe, the badass who drives the boats, flies the planes, and owns The Ends of the Earth, the bar they call their headquarters — makes it to series, it will be Duncan’s first regular TV gig. (If not, at least he’s got voicing Kilowog in this summer’s Green Lantern to fall back on.) READ FULL STORY

John Francis Daley on co-writing tonight's episode of 'Bones' and sharing a scene with his dad for the first time. (Awww.)
You probably didn’t need another reason to watch Bones tonight, but here’s one anyway: The hour, which took Bones and Booth into the world of myths, was penned by none other than Bones cast member John Francis Daley.
In a chat with EW, Daly, whose name also earns a writing credit on Horrible Bosses, out July 8, breaks down his first experience writing an episode of Bones, the “nerve-wracking” scene he shared with his father (who guest stars in the ep), and the season finale of Bones. (Preview: “…they are not renewing my contract.” By the way, I’m totally throwing you off with that snippet.) READ FULL STORY

Ever since Bones creator Hart Hanson announced that he would be using the April 21 episode called “The Finder” to introduce a character, Walter Sherman, who could potentially front a new series on Fox come fall, fans have been wanting to know more about him. Fortunately, Geoff Stults, the Happy Town and October Road vet who was cast as the man who can unearth anyone and anything, is finally talking. In the episode, Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) travel to Florida to solve the murder of a maritime museum security guard, and once there, Booth suggests they call on Walter to help locate a stolen treasure map.
We’ll learn that years ago, Walter, a former military policeman, tracked Seeley down after he went AWOL when he wasn’t granted leave to see the birth of his son, Parker. “Booth has always been resentful of that because I arrested him, and he’s always wanted to get me back,” Stults says, “but he’s also known that I’m really good at finding things.” Booth tells Brennan that Walter has “finder power,” which Walter proves to Brennan by finding something that’s important to her. “And then, I kind of fall in love with her. And then she has a minute of like, ‘Wait, do I like him?’ — just enough, I’m sure, that the Bones fans are gonna be like, Nooo waaay. I saw it one time on Twitter already. I was like let me shoot the f—in’ thing first. Relax, guys,” Stults laughs. “Don’t kill me. I’m just tryin’ to get a pilot picked up here.”
After hearing more about Walter Sherman, we think we’re gonna like him. Here’s what we’ve uncovered: READ FULL STORY

FRINGE: EPS TEASE TRIPPIEST EPISODE SINCE ‘BROWN BETTY’
Full disclosure: I was originally going to preview tonight’s episode of Fringe for you, but honestly, I’m in such a pleasant mood over the renewal that I say we move on to bigger matters, like episode 19, airing April 15.
Before the big news, Jeff Pinkner and Joel H. Wyman hopped on the phone with me to tease an episode I’ve been dying to know more about ever since I heard a rumor that it would be Astrid-centered, which, it turns out, isn’t entirely the case. Oh, I’ll just let them explain. READ FULL STORY
We’ve heard from Bones exec producers for months that Angela’s pregnancy would not be without complications. On last night’s episode, we found out that both Angela (Michaela Conlin) and Hodgins (TJ Thyne) are carriers of the recessive gene for LCA (Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis), giving their baby a 25 percent chance of blindness. For Angela, an artist, and Hodgins, a scientist, the news was devastating. In the end, the couple reminded each other that they can deal with anything, which is good, because Conlin tells EW the drama isn’t over. “They have another scare coming,” she says of a script that she’s heard about but has not yet read. “It’s a crazy little end of the season for them.” READ FULL STORY

to lend a hand and help me carry these things that weigh like 8,000 pounds through the snow, up the stairs, and into grandmother’s house we go — the elevator. We jam them in the elevator, the elevator door closes, and a quarter of the way up, the power goes out, and Bones and I are stuck in there for almost half a day,” he says. “That’s where they kinda come to grips with their relationship, and he pulls out a ring and says, ‘Will you marry me, please?’ No.” (That was funny but cruel. “It is, right?” he says, still laughing.)
