Sarah Michelle Gellar On Hubby Freddie Prinze's Forthcoming Bones Date With Ex-Buffy Love David Boreanaz: They Better Not Make Out!

Prinze Gellar Boreanaz BonesSarah Michelle Gellar gave husband Freddie Prinze Jr. her blessing to appear on Bones this season opposite her former Buffy leading man David Boreanaz, but her endorsement came with one tiny caveat.

“As long as they don’t make out I think it’ll be fun,” the actress laughed to TVLine Sunday night at CBS’ Television Critics Assoc. press tour party, where she was promoting her new fall comedy, Crazy Ones.

All joking aside, Gellar revealed that Prinze’s potentially recurring stint on the Fox drama — in which he’ll play a covert CIA agent and old buddy of Boreanaz’ Booth — was negotiated at the pool.

“This actually all came about from David, Freddie and I hanging out two weeks ago,” she explained. “David sort of [floated the idea to us]. And I was like, ‘Sure!’ And Freddie was like, ‘Yes!’ It was literally a poolside conversation.”

Currently, Prinze is booked for one episode — the show’s Sept. 16 Season 9 opener — but word is there’s potential for a second.
