Scoop: Bones Spinoff Lands Saffron Burrows

Ex-Law & Order: Criminal Intent detective Saffron Burrows has joined Fox’s prospective Bones spinoff, sources confirm.

Burrows joins the previously-cast Geoff Stults and Michael Clarke Duncan.

The planted pilot, which will air as the 19th episode of Bones‘ current season, is based  on The Locator books written by Richard Greener and centers on Walter Sherman aka “the Locator” (Stults), a former military policeman who can find anything.

Burrows will play Walter’s confidente/sidekick, a bar owner who knows her way around a helicopter cockpit.
