    • I think it is terrible that just because I live in Puerto Rico I can not view this video. I would like to know the reasoning behind this. I think it is unfair.

    • Choice of Hodgins father–Gene Wilder
      Angela’s real name–might be disclosed at end of this season.
      Angela relieved (in character’s) to be a one guy girl

      • Gene Wilder is perfect!

        • As a Bones series lover who never misses a show and re-watches episodes over and over again throughout the year …. I agree, bring Gene Wilder into the fold and tell us what happened to TJ’s family. Too bad Gilda Radner isn’t here to play TJ’s mom, now wouldn’t that be totally awesome!

      • Thank you very much!

        Comment by Annika – November 1, 2011 08:38 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Gene Wilder as his father.
    Did NOT reveal Angela’s real first name (she said maybe by end of season).
    Didn’t directly answer Married vs. Single Angela, but said she was glad the marriage finally paid off for fans.

  • for those of you who can’t watch the video, here’s the rundown of the answers:

    michaela likes playing married angela best

    tj would cast gene wilder as his father

    they do not reveal angela’s real name, but say maybe by the end of the series

    and tj does not plan on shaving or taking his shirt off any time soon.
    :)

    • THANKS SO MUCH!!!! fOR WRITE! I can`t see too!

      Comment by Ruth – October 31, 2011 11:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Michaela says that Angela is better being the married Angela, and that hopefully by series end, we will actually learn her real name. TJ may shave, and bare his chest this year, and if he could cast anyone as his father (who is dead) it would be Gene Wilder.

  • The music in the background drowns out their answers. Why oh why do they need to put in some kind of soundtrack? I never see this done correctly.

  • Many thanks to those who have answered the questions on behalf of people like me who cannot watch the video.

  • I love Angela/Jack as much as Booth/Brennan! Thanks for the video interview! :)

    Comment by Wendy – October 31, 2011 11:57 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • If Angela likes playing married so much, let’s hope she (and writers) cut down on the lusting she still does after Booth. Pretty inappropriate now. IMO

    Comment by 1mars – October 31, 2011 12:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • @1mars As the saying goes, Angela is married, not dead. LOL! And it doesn’t seem to bother Brennan, Booth, or Hodgins! Just flirting.

      Comment by Wendy – October 31, 2011 12:56 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • She doesn’t lust after him. Besides, she is Booth and Brennan’s #1 biggest fan.

      Comment by Jason – November 1, 2011 08:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • She [Angela] definately is, her and Sweets.

      Ya, I live in brasil, so I’ll just console my self by looking at hot guys, now where can I find them? Seriously though, I watched the youtube video and there’s no way to say you don’t love those two. Very nice on the inapropriate ‘rated R’ question, very enjoyable. I think more enjoyable than their answers were their reactions to the questions. For those of you who haven’t seen it, there’s a youtube link for this video in one of the first posts.

  • I thought Hodgins was the last heir of his wealthy family…
    I can’t watch the video either but why would they cast his father ??

    Comment by claire – October 31, 2011 01:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Just got the flashback thing… it could be nice !

      Comment by claire – October 31, 2011 01:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • They didn’t cast Booth’s father yet, they didn’t do Booth’s father planned flashback, why would they do it with Hodgins father? Delusional.

    Comment by june – October 31, 2011 05:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Not delusional, just unlikely, they didn’t do it with Booth’s father cause David’s performance was so good and the story so compelling that it wasn’t necessary, but with Hodgins, who knows? I don’t think we can rule it out ’till they rule it out.

      Comment by BiA – October 31, 2011 05:47 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • How is it delusional to say that when these questions are from the fans? They asked, he answered.

  • its great that you guys posted in on youtube, but some countries, like china, also block youtube. i dont understand why its so hard for TVLine to have its videos accessible to everyone? Has TV Line ever addressed why it makes its videos for US only? Is it a requirement by their networks or something?????
