Scoop: Bones Baddie Digs Up Body of Proof Gig

So this is funny: Body of Proof this season will reveal that Detective Bud Morris’ “ball and chain” actually used to wear a ball and chain.

TVLine has learned exclusively that ABC’s sophomore procedural has cast Deirdre Lovejoy — aka Bones serial killer Heather Taffet/”The Gravedigger” and The Wire‘s ASA Rhonda Pearlman — in the potentially recurring role of Jeannie Morris, Bud’s “exhausted and a bit grouchy wife.”

Hey, know why she’s exhausted and grouchy? Because she’s out all night digging graves in which to bury people alive.

At a cocktail party celebrating Body of Proof‘s Season 2 launch, John Carroll Lynch shared with me that viewers would be meeting Bud’s Mrs. and in turn “know a bit more about his home life” — as we will with other characters on the show, as it fleshes out its canvas.
