Get ready to see this face in a few episodes! Meet Jared Booth, aka Brendan Fehr.


What do you think? Look like a good match for Booth's brother?

Read what the actor has to say, on his official website news page. (Be warned about possible spoilers and um...attitude.)

that's not attitude, just his sense of humor!!! i love him and can't wait to see him on bones. he and david have that tall dark and handsome thing that the WB was so good at casting for!

Joce said...

PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

I love that guy! very good casting!

No no no. I'm not too excited about that. And I did sense some attitude. I mean, I think he's a little too young to create "sparks" between bones and him. But whatever, hopefully it won't last too long.

L said...

GOOD CHOICE. :D

CupcakeBean said...

Okay, he's pretty hot and could definitely pass for Booth's younger brother. I'm still not happy about this storyline though... >:(

And, is it just me or does he look like he might be a little young for Brennan?

heirofloki said...

Eh, He's not my type, but I guess he could pass for DB's younger brother.

And for the record, I'm all about sense of humour, but I did sense some attitude. The off-putting kind.

heirofloki said...

Yeah, forgot to mention, he's a bit young for Brennan...I mean, historically, hasn't she been all about older men (closer to her age, that is)?

The actor hisemlf is only one or two years younger than Emily so i think that it was very good casting
Plus he is totally sexy just like David so i can see a conflict coming about.

TempeBooth said...

Omigod! He's perfect! DOn't y'all remember him being the lab tech from CSI Miami who used Speed's credit card and freaked out Delko? He's going to be awesome! Hot, but not hot enough to overshadow our Boreanaz

TempeBooth said...

Initial comments on Fehr's semblance to Boreanaz (although Loren Dean does not look like Emily and does not look like Ryan O Neal), I think Fehr's too caucasian. Boreanaz' features are kind of European, his eyes are warm little slits, almost Asian. Brendan also lacks the hard warrior-like jawline that Boreanaz has. In a nutshell, he's not about to out-pretty our Seeley Booth.

Milk Mama said...

That's funny. I think he'll make a great Jared Booth, and a major stumbling block for Booth. Maybe he'll man-up and lock lips with Bren?

Nah. We all know how that ones goes...

This guy is not good looking enough to play Booth's brother, the way he is describe in the spoilers and this casting are not a match. He is no competition for Booth just makes David look 10 times hotter.

Anonymous said...

Of all the actors in Hollywood and they chose him? He is just average looking at best and is too young looking, like he should be in a teen drama and not on Bones. If he hits on Brennan it is just yuck, from all her love interests he is definitely not her type but the way she has been acting so sex obsessed of late, nothing would surprise me. I hate what they have done to the show this season.

Anonymous said...

NO WAY!
He is not hot enough, not even if I squint and tilt my eyes, can I muster any likeness to David.

What is with Brendan's look, he looks like he is constipated or something and the guy has attitude, lose it, he should be grateful that he got the gig. Instead of moaning.
I don't like the casting at all or the character of Jared who is an a*s
Trying to be nice really am :)

Amanda said...

I am holding off passing judgment on the actor as I haven't seen any of his work.

That said, my brothers (three) vaguely look like each other, but you could just as easily say they're cousins. My sister and I look less like each other than we do some of our female cousins. The thing that makes it obvious we're all siblings is the mannerisms and speech patterns we all have in common.

I'm more forgiving on finding an actor for the role if the one cast can do a lot of the same turns-of-phrase and little things as OUR Booth. I think it will be interesting to see what little character quirks they share (clothes, gait, tossing things in the air, etc.)

Just a thought.

Shep said...

Meh, he's not as hot as Booth so yayyy!! (I didn't think Jared would, or indeed should be)

He's not my type either but I didn't want him to be. He does look a bit young but he might look older in the show waht with the clothes, hair ..etc.. - I wonder what his character will be like. I'm eager to see any sibling rivalry between him and Booth. But NO Brennan/Jared kissage!!!

CupcakeBean said...

I kinda feel bad for the guy because we are all predisposed to hate him! That's why I'm trying really hard not to judge him as an actor. I've accepted that fact that I'll probably hate his character, but I'm going to try not to take it out on the actor since I'm not familiar with him.

heirofloki said...

I actually quite like Fehr as an actor (attitude/looks debate notwithstanding). I pretty much loved him in Roswell, and was rather amused with his character on CSI:Miami. But you're right cupcakebean, he's destined to be the new Cam, I'm afraid.

And gosh, that really is enough to make one feel bad for the guy.

Johana Alvarez said...

To be honest, I'm not that impressed with this casting. I would have like to see someone else, although I do think that he is a very good actor. I loved him in Roswell and Samurai Girl, but I just can't see him as Booth's brother. Maybe it's the cosmetics of it, I'm having trouble picturing him with a nice hair cut like Booth (which in my opinion would help me see them as brothers better...even though I know that isn't always the case...and I wouldn't want to see them with the SAME hair cut) and I would like to see him in something a little more conservative than what his normal characters would wear...I don't know. I could probably get into the idea more when the epi is happening, but right now, I'm just lukewarm! But again, I think he's a great actor and VERY handsome...so we'll see.

I think the younger brother story is an excellent catalyst for the Booth/Brennan relationship. Sibling rivalry is a perfect way to force Booth to come to terms with his feelings for her. Some viewers have said that he knows he is in love with her, but I don't think he realizes it on an entirely conscious level. Brennan is obviously reaching out to the dating world this season looking for love. Jared will be a perfectly packaged similar version of Booth for her for her to risk her feelings on. Booth will have to either step up and fight for her, or back down and let the heartbreak set in. Either way, the story line will tug on our emotional heartstrings.

By the way, if anyone is looking for a great new crime procedural, Flashpoint on CBS is an excellent one. It doesn't have as much character content as BONES, but it is one of my new favorite shows. Then again...I'm a little biased since its set in Canada!

Why is it that Booth who is the most handsome man on Television never has any women that he can call his own.
He might have them but we never see them. While Brennan is sleeping with every guy whose has an interest in her. The writers of this are making bones into a tramp. I hope booth gets smart and dumps this sex obsessed broad.

Anonymous said...

Personally, this Jared storyline sucks for me. I know I might be jumping the gun here but this kinda a story line could have been done in season 2 or early part of season 3 but not now in season 4 if at all to be done...

I mean if they show Jared and Brennan for whatever reason that would open Brennan's character for bashing because people like me will feel cheated that after following this series for so long... Wouldn't it be irratoinal for a rational person like Brennan who brags about rationlism to date a guy who was alost booked for DUI???

For me no matter how well they handle their dating, kissing or sex (jumping the gun I know but going by Brennan's way would not be an issue)it is bound to leave a bad taste... AND I SO DO NOT WANT TO SEE A JEALOUS BOOTH FOR NO REASON

Anonymous said...

This guy is NOT hot. But then again, no one can ever be as hot as David.

Shep said...

I want to see a jealous Booth, but not at the expense of having Jared and Brennan sleep together. If that's the case then I'm sorry but I will be all for Booth beating him into a bloody pulp and I don't care if he is his brother or not! (Ok, maybe I care a little but I'm running on raw emotion here)

Anonymous said...

I actually think he's very handsome, but not as much as Boreanaz. I'm interested to see stuff about Booth's family, because we really don't know much about them! The tension between Seeley/Temperance/Jared could be interesting, AS LONG AS THERE IS NO PROLONGUED MINGLING WITH JARED ON TEMPERANCE'S PART!

Ha ha ha, prolongued mingling...I hope that isn't confusing...

Please writers, do this storyline justice.

Anonymous said...

If Brennan does what she usually does and sleeps with this guy then Seely should really get pissed and completely get away from this tramp.
If this happens and im sure it will because Hart Hanson and those boobs he calls for writers will let it happen then i feel that this show should be cancelled. Them we will see if Emily D could get another lead role in any other show. Dont think so. David Yes.

firefairyangel said...

In response to the last comment from an Anonymous poster, how is Brennan a tramp? In the three seasons we've seen her, she's slept with exactly three people: her former professor, Sully (her boyfriend at the time), and Mark. She's gone on dates with others, but has not slept with them. There is nothing wrong with an adult like Brennan sleeping with her boyfriend/date.

I have to say that ever since i saw Brenden F. in the long weekend he's been set into my mind as a retard and i just cannot see Tempe and him hookin' up and I really feel sorry for Emily if she has to. Also i totally don't see the resemblance between him and David!

Anonymous said...

This was once a great show. You could not wait for the end to see who the killer was. It is now a joke.
It seems like every other episode now is fixating on Brennans love/sex life. Now because they have nothing else to write about they are putting
Booths brother in the mix. Some people are really excited about the prospect of Booth being jealous again. I know this a television show but it should imitate life in some way. No man with any self respect especially a guy who looks like Booth would NEVER have any feelings for a woman whose morals are so low.

JudeUK said...

Ok I love 'Bones' its a familiar, comfortable show you can chill out to. It also has the added atraction of David Boreanaz and T J Thyne who are both hot in different ways! Here's the deal though, its not real and some people seem to take it way too seriously.
If you are going to get serious about it though I'm with firefairyangel if people think that's promiscuous they obviously live very sheltered lives. Also, just because its not mentioned how does anyone know that Booth isn't sleeping with a different woman every night or would that be different 'cos he's male.
Finally give Brendan Fehr a break he's just an actor doing his job in a programme that's just good entertainment, some of the comments are way too vitriolic.

Anonymous said...

Why do most people think this a good idea? They think this is going to make Booth realise that he has feelings for Brennan. I dont think so. It only shows that Brennan has no feelings for Booth whatsoever. Just a thought. Do people think that if Brennan had a sister do you think that Booth would ever go out with her let alone have sex? Not in a million years. But if he did what would Firefairyangel and Judeuk have to say about that.

Anonymous said...

To the poster JUDEUK, You are right we dont know if Booth is sleeping with a differnt woman every night. We know if he is nobody will ever know about especially Brennan. What is not known also is the number of men Brennan is sleeping with. Knowing her past history it could be dozens. After she sleeps with Booths brother the first thing she is going to do is tell Booth about it. Thats what she did when she had sex with Sully. I think all you Brennan defenders will all agree that she is a S**t.

Anonymous said...

Wow I think that he absolutley could be David's brother in real life. Plus Temperance even said they had a family resemblance, and you can't just change who Booth's brother was in an episode before season five. I heard they're trying to change who Cam's adopted daughter was last season which I find very stupid. They should have the same girl do it, even if she does have a full time job on "Ten things I hate about you". She wouldn't be on there every episode I am absolutely sure.
