Betty White Is Bones' Newest Squintern

Bones is not messing around in Season 11.

The long-running Fox procedural has tapped Betty White to guest star as the Jeffersonian’s latest squintern, TVLine has learned.

White will play Dr. Beth Mayer,  an accomplished, sharp as a tack squintern who is brought in to assist in a murder linked to fantasy football — which just happens to be one of her many areas of expertise. With a half century of work under her belt, Dr. Mayer is considered the world’s most experienced forensic anthropologist, which will lead to some serious competition with Emily Deschanel’s Brennan.

White is coming off of a six-season run on Hot in Cleveland.

Her episode is scheduled to air in late October. Bones kicks off Season 11 on Thursday, Oct. 1 at 8/7c.
