    • Nov. 27, 1970 way too young to be Brennan’s mom in real time.

      • But her mom died almost 20 years ago. She would probably have been 40ish when she died, so a 40ish actress would be appropriate.

          • 42 isn’t 40ish?

  • I kept thinking “Who is that Brooke girl?” I don’t watch any of the shows you list as her credits, but I know that name. I looked her up, and she is the girl from “The Replacements.” I fall for her every time I see that movie.

    It has to be a really slow night on TV for me to watch Bones, but I just might now.

    • She’s on Kiss The Bride. It’s one of my favorite movies ever. It’s like the most underrated movie EVER! It’s so cute and sweet and perfect! Pretty much no one’s heard of her, but she’s really pretty and definitely young to be Brennan’s mom now, obviously, but not as Brennan remembers her!
