Bones has cast Sarah Michelle Gellar’s better half, Freddie Prinze Jr., in a potential multi-episode arc opposite Gellar’s former Buffy leading man David Boreanaz, TVLine has learned exclusively.
According to sources, Prinze — who will be introduced in the Fox hit’s Sept. 16 opener — will play Danny, a very covert CIA agent. Armed and dangerous, he’s also an old associate of Booth’s who has an interest in Booth and Brennan’s current murder investigation.
In an interview with TVLine at Comic-Con last week, Boreanaz hinted that Booth would be reunited with several figures from his past in Season 9; in addition to Prinze’s spy, the show is also casting the role of an ex-priest from Booth’s Rangers days.
Currently, Prinze is booked for one episode, but I hear there’s potential for a second.Follow @MichaelAusiello
