Bones Preview: 5 Things You Need to Know About the New Squintern

Get More: Interviews, Previews, Scoop

When Bones killed off Vincent Nigel-Murray last season (R.I.P., chap), the door was held open for a new squintern at the Jeffersonian. And the winner is… the super-smart, uber-Southern Finn Abernathy, who arrives in this Thursday’s episode (Fox, 9/8c). Here, TVLine gets his portrayer, Luke Kleintank, to reveal the five things you need to know about the sweet but troubled newbie.

HE’S A GOOD SOUTHERN BOY | Kleintank describes his character as “a good ol’ boy from the hills” who just happens to have a love of forensic anthropology. And did we mention that he’s Southern? Put it this way: If Daisy is very neurotic and Clark was very private, then Finn is very Southern. But Kleintank had no problem slipping into the role. “I have family from Kentucky and Ohio,” he explains. “I just tapped right into some of my Southern roots.”

HE’S GOT A PAST | Finn comes to the Jeffersonian with a record, which will “cloud some of the doctors’ minds,” previews the actor. “They’re not going to want him around.” But who can resist that face, especially when country-fried sayings like “Easier than flipping a flapjack standing on your forehead” come out of it? No one for long! Finn’s “very, very sweet,” insists Kleintank. “He wants people to respect him.”

HE’S GOT SOMETHING IN COMMON WITH BRENNAN AND BOOTH | Like the forensic anthropologist and the FBI agent, Finn has a history of abuse. “That is a middle ground for everyone to relate,” says Kleintank. “I fee like their relationship could grow just through that.” Bones, in particular, will form a connection with Finn, especially after she finds out that she inadvertently saved his life as a youngster. “He was in a very bad place before she came in and rescued him,” the actor reveals. “He didn’t have a family growing up, so this is his newfound family.”

FINN AND HODGINS ARE THE NEW DYNAMIC DUO | Wendell, you are well and truly adored, but we think Hodgins might have a new favorite squintern. Like most love stories, this one begins with dislike. “At first, they butt heads a lot,” Kleintank says. Luckily, Finn knows the way to Hodgins’ heart – it involves puke! – and quickly wins him over, giving birth to an awesome new duo. “He has a comedic aspect with Hodgins,” describes the actor. “They become best buds.”

THE OTHER SQUINTERNS SHOULD BE WORRIED | If Brennan ever decides to hire just one intern, Finn’s got a pretty good shot at the gig. Although he may seem “very, very illiterate at some points,” says Kleintank, “he’s on point and he’s focused. He knows his stuff.” And there are plans to bring him back for another episode, so watch your backs… um, other squinterns.

  • Wow. When I first saw the picture, I thought “Who put a wig on Dr. Chase?”

    I always enjoy the Squintern Squad. They bring a lot of fun and variety to the show. I’ll always miss “Mr. Nigel Murray” though.

      • I miss Zack also! He was so awkward and funny, I couldn’t believe what that turned out to be! I wish they wouldve killed off Wendel not Mr. Nigel Murray, I loved his fun facts

        • But isn’t the series partly based on a real story?
          Because in that case they wouldn’t really have a choice…

          • the series is based off of kathy reiches (i have no idea if thats spelled right) so brennan and booth and the basic murder-bad guy plot is from her. but the writers created a whole other plot line for the tv series

        • Zack Addy again.Sweets sprung him once, he can do it again

          Comment by bobbi – November 10, 2011 09:50 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Agreed! It continues to bother me that he never even gets mentioned anymore, much less do they visit him or anything. The Perfect Pieces in the Purple Pond got my hopes up that he’d at least have a peripheral role occasionally, helping them solve particularly difficult cases from the institution. But no: barely even spoken of again. Apparently forgotten by the cast, but not by the fans!

            Also, let’s not forget: this Finn shares a history of abuse with Brennan, Booth, and Sweets. It’s getting to be like a support group in there.

        • Well, the nuthouse is better than the big house because Zack would have been fresh meat all around.

  • Being from the south myself, it always cracks me up when people portray “southern” on tv. That being said, I’m really excited about the new squintern, as I didn’t really care for VNM (unpopular opinion, I know).

        • southern ohio… is pretty backwoods… i mean southern as in right on the wv border lol i lived on the border but on the wv side.. and they are southern… just not deeeeeeeep south like a mississippi or arkansas

          Comment by a – November 10, 2011 03:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • My roots are in southern Ohio, so I agree there is a definite accent. Backwoods might be a good way to describe, but not illiterate by any stretch. As for the word choices, I have to say the folks down there do have some very unique ways of turning a phrase.

            Comment by Karmella – November 11, 2011 07:07 AM PDT  
      • Yeah, I thought the same thing. I’m pretty sure no one considers Ohio Southern, except him apparently.

        Comment by Cameron – November 10, 2011 09:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I completely agree on that one. I was born and raised in Michigan and Ohio is not the much more southern that Michigan. Kentucky I can see. My in laws are from Kentucky and I can see the roots from there.

        Comment by shay – November 10, 2011 10:10 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Yeah, I’m from Georgia, and Ohio? Southern? No.

        I think “rural” and “Southern” get confused for each other a lot. Personally, I’d like to see a southern character on tv who doesn’t have a country-fried accent. There are also variations. One thing, though, I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a teenager saying those weird, supposedly southern, sayings. Old people might say those things, but not so much the young’uns.

    • That’s why they killed off Mr. Nigel-Murray. The actor (Ryan Cartwright) got another gig: Alphas on Syfy. He’s the main reason I watch that show. But I do still miss Vincent (esp. because on his new show, he doesn’t have that awesome British accent!)

      • Neither, technically, is Kentucky. Unless the dude lives in Canada and he’s using that as his reference point. Plus, we don’t all use trite phrases here in the South. TV writers have a hard time making Southerners genuine on tv…

        Comment by Amy – November 10, 2011 07:09 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I don’t know, I pretty much consider anything below the Mason Dixon line “The South” – so while Ohio doesn’t count (I’d say midwest), Kentucky would count.

          Comment by Rachel – November 10, 2011 07:25 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Ohio is actually more mid EAST. It’s east of the Mississippi River. Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, the Dakotas, Kansas, Arkansas, etc. are considered the Midwest…

            Comment by marleneD – November 10, 2011 11:54 AM PDT  
        • While not southern, they do have some culturally southern traits and traditions. Living in West Virginia for a good chunk of my life, I can say that even though it is in fact above the Mason Dixon line, they are very culturally southern in parts of the state; it is the same in Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky.
          I do hate though how “southern” is depicted on TV, it’s kind of an insult to any real southerner when we see the dumbarse rednecks they make them out to be. lol.

        • I’m not from the South, so I couldn’t say which states are concidered part of it but I do know a terrible fake accent and bad colloquialisms when I hear them. I emplore both the writers and the actor to cut the crap and get real.

          Comment by Shea – November 11, 2011 08:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m Canadian and I really just sat here a moment reconsidering everything I know about American geography (which is more than most Americans — and this was just proved in this article). If Ohio shares a border with Canada, I’m not sure how it can be *more* north, short of being Alaska.

      Comment by deebot – November 10, 2011 08:02 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • He needs to come visit Texas or Louisiana. He would find plenty of “Southern” down here!! I hope he sticks in a “ya’ll” every once in a while! And remember…”ya’ll” is singular. “All ya’ll” is plural!!

      Comment by Annie – November 10, 2011 09:43 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I lived In Missouri for 3 years; I was told that “Ya’ll” means you and “You’ins” means everyone in your family… could include everyone you know. I never heard anyone say “All ya’ll” There were very different levels of accents, tho….

        Comment by marleneD – November 10, 2011 11:58 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Well, I am from Texas, and now live in Georgia. Both southern bc they seceded from the Union and were part of the Confederacy during the Civil War. Y’all is in fact a proper contraction (like can’t or won’t). It is the contraction of y(ou) all. To spell it correctly it is “Y” apostrophe “all”.

        Comment by crna2012 – November 10, 2011 02:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • “Ya’ll” is not something Southerners say. We say “Y’all”; it’s a contraction of “you” and “all”.

  • Just gotta chime in here to say that this new squintern is in fact pretty awesome. (Partly because he gives Hodgins and Cam some great scenes, and knocks Temp’s socks off with his smarts.) I think he could evolve to become a fan fave, easily make the Top 3.

    • Oops, I should be thanking Vlada for the article. My bad. It’s cool that “Bones” is so popular that an article about a new squintern has this many comments and this much interest. And to Matt, thanks for the bit you added about being in the top three. Looking forward to seeing how he pans out. But you typically have pretty good taste, so–

    • Did you watch Thursday’s episode? The kid’s a savant or somrthing. He graduated high school early, and college at 16-18? (can’t quite remember from the ep. I was more interested in those gorgeous eyes. He’s definitely in my top favorite squinterns. Wendell, Finn, and then VNM. But first and foremost, if I had the choice, Zach Addy would be back and all the rest of them would be in the background, assisting when needed.

    • Agreed. Daisy makes me nauseous. I was honestly hoping she would get killed off at the beginning of last season in the jungle. I can’t believe they brought her back because no one seems to like her. Especially on the message boards. I miss Zack and I definitely miss Vincent Nigel-Murray but he had a new show to go to and they had to get Booth and Bones together somehow..

      On a side note:
      I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS BABY TO BE BORN! Booth and Brennen are perfect together!

      • I can really do without Daisy being on the show anymore and also I hope we don’t see Wendell less I really like his character on the show, but I have a feeling since Finn well have so much in common with 3 main characters that they will keep him around awhile.

  • Being “Southern (I.e. country)” has very little to do with geography. It is more to do with personality. That being said states that are in the south have more country people. But I’ve met some very country people from new York, California, Canada, Washington (state), all over really. Being country has little to do with the state youre from. As for the new squint…. I MISS ZACH!!! Excited to see how this dude turns out.

  • I really liked Zack. it’s a shame that his bipolar disorder makes it difficult for him to be an actor and the condition is what made it difficult for him to continue to be on Bones.

    I really don’t like Daisy because of her freaky Brennan fan girlness.

    Also, it seems a bit repetitive to have people from broken homes be apart of Bones. Lance coming from foster homes and suffering those scars. Brennan too. Booth had an abusive father.

    I think another female squintern could/should have been considered. Someone opposite of Daisy…more like Haru Tanaka.

    I hope we get to learn more about Lance in this season too.

  • Ohio is definitely not south. I’m from new Orleans Louisiana which is extremely south. Although I consider new Orleanians a different kind of southerns, tv often steroids types southern and we do not walking around saying crazy weird phrases like they make it seem.

  • I think it’s premature to judge this new character until
    we see what he can/can’t do or how he jives w/ the rest of the
    Jeffersonian “lab rats”.
    On the subject of Daisy—ugggh!Her abrasive ADHD behavior makes
    me want to shove a wet sock down her throat![a little harsh?]
    I will also support the vote to get Zack back or at least in a recurring manner. There is a Twitter acct @bringbackzack
    [#bringbackzack]& website http://www.bringbackzack.com for those who
    wish to voice their desire for Fox execs or Hart Hansen to bring
    Zack back to Bones.As far as Eric Millegan’s bipolar condition:
    He stated in a YouTube video that he’s been stabilized on his
    meds and continues to perform. He did, after all, return in
    season 5 “The Parts of the sum of the hole”. YES Bring back Zack.

  • I also miss Zack and I thought they didn’t finish that story so won’t we see him back at some point? He told Sweet he didn’t kill the man as accused so he should have a follow up. I didn’t miss that story did I?
    I am always willing to like new Squints though so we’ll see.

  • You have to go to southern Ohio, that may not be in the south, but some of the people there are pretty southern, so it may not be true south but it can get pretty close

  • I am with everyone who thought that was Chase!! WOW what an amazing resemblance. And sometimes his Southern accent almost had an Australian sound to it!!

  • This new guy has one of the worst southern accents I have ever heard! I’ve lived in Louisiana my entire life…which is the deep south…..and I have never met anyone who uses phrases like “Easier than flipping a flapjack standing on your forehead”. Ridiculous character! Too bad. I love Bones.

    • I agree, I absolutely hate it when actors use fake accents, it’s so grating, like chewing tinfoil. If you can’t do an accent, don’t do it. I fastforwarded through all his scenes. What a twit.

  • I thought I heard a British accent in there too. I think he studied Liam Neesom’s accent from the movie “Next of Kin”. That might explain it.
