Happy (Hiatus is almost over) Bonesday!

Sorry for the late post today.

Today is the last Wednesday of the Bones hiatus. While the last was that we'd get a rerun of the Season 2 episode "The Headless Witch in the Woods" tonight, that is no longer the case. Instead, more baseball will be shown. (Boo.)

In the meantime, have you been watching any of the other works by any of the Bones cast members? I'm curious, of the other works available for David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, etc...what's your favorite? What would you recommend? And you weren't too fond of?

I came across Emily in a Stephen King film (I think) as I was flicking channels the other day. She was bleached blonde. Her acting was fine, the rest of the show was not great... I didn't continue to watch. Sooo weird to see her as 'someone else' though!

I haven't intentionally been watching any of their other work, but the other night I was watching 'What Women Want' (don't ask me why), and who should I see, but TJ Thyne!

Then I was flicking through a wedding magazine, and I saw a picture of Emily being a bridesmaid for Melanie Lynskey.

So Bones will always find you!

As always, I've been watching Angel. I can't get enough. It's coming towards the end of season 5 now but it'll start from the beginning next week! I think I'll be watching it till it kills me! I haven't seen any of his other films (Valentine etc...) are they any good?

I saw "Mr Fix-It" with DB recently...as much as I love the guy, I'm sorry to say, that movie was just not very good. "Glory Road" with Emily, on th other hand, was a fantastic film, but her part was too small for my liking - however, she got to kiss Josh Lucas, lucky girl ;).
I remember TJ from an episode of "Charmed"...his character died within a couple of minutes, though.
That's all I can think of right now, but I'm pretty sure I've seen David in other films and shows besides "Buffy" and "Angel".

I agree with nic. Glory Road is a great film, and this is coming from someone who generally stays away from all things sports. Emily's role is small, but if you're a fan, it's worth watching. (Plus, one of the producers from that film was the one who recommended Emily to Hart for Bones!)

The Stephen King film referenced above was a 3-part miniseries called Rose Red. I liked it, and I liked Emily in it. Though, Emily's the cute, young, quirky, blonde girl in a horror flick, so you can probably guess how her character ends up...

I saw DB in two things that he was really good in. The first was an OK quirky romantic comedy called "I'm with Lucy." He plays Mr. annoyingly-perfect. In most movies, this stock character comes across as simply unlikeable. DB's guy was obviously not "the guy" but you sort of felt for him. The way he played the guy he was totally wonderful 75% of the time, but then says something unforgiveable. I feel like I dated that guy, once upon a time.

I also saw him in a really bad indie film called "these girls." Incidentally, the premise sounded worse than it was, but it still was a bad script with major plausiblity holes. But DB was the hands down the best thing about it. He plays this working class schmo who is felling down on himself, and so makes some really, really stupid choices and ends up in way over his head. Again, he does some really dumb and unlikeable things, but you feel him. You get where he is coming from, and sort of feel bad for him when he gets his well-deserved come-uppance.

I saw "Mr. Fix-it" too. I agree: not a good thing. What was up with that fantasy scene where DB was playing the upright bass? It just didn't make any sense.

Movies like that one make you appreciate how hard it is pull off these ridiculous premise's that they base romantic comedy's on.

Gotta admit, loved his outfit in that seen though ;)...reminded me a bit of him as Tony Scallion(?) on Bones...and the old guys were just adorable.

I found an extract from Suffering Man's Charity. Boreanaz' character was having an argument with his roommate in one scene, and then in another, he was the ghost of that character...I liked both of the scenes, so when it comes out on DVD, I hope to purchase it.

I purchased Mr. Fix-it (only because he was lead character in that), and while there were some moments I appreciated, overall I wouldn't recommend it. I chalk it up to some uneven writing.

I've seen DB in Angel and Valentine. Loved Angel (wasn't a full-on fan, but what I saw, I liked). Mostly laughed in Valentine: typical tween slasher movie. I really wanna see Our Lady of Victory though. Sports, DB and Carla Gugino? FTW!

Haven't seen Emily in pretty much anything else. Although, the only bit of Cold Mountain I managed to watch had Emily in it. I don't know how much she was in the movie, or what exactly did she do, but *sigh* even Anthony Minghella AND Nicole Kidman couldn't get me to watch that movie whole.

I've seen plenty of Tamara Taylor. Most memorable appearance, though: Serenity. I knew that movie was gonna be good when she came up on the first scene.

As someone who loves big band music and plays the upright bass in a big band, that was the best scene in Fix-it. Ah, I would duet (or do it) with DB anytime.......

Welcome, Kathie!

I would have to recommend Angel, for sure. I've also seen These Girls (meh, but sometimes funny), Mr. Fix-It (has it's great moments), I'm with Lucy (not stellar, but I definitely enjoyed it), and The Hard Easy (should have been a comedy, and DB is definitely the best part).

I haven't seen Glory Road but I hope to soon, as well as Valentine, which I've got on my nightstand, and Suffering Man's Charity (or Ghostwriter as it's now known), which I plan to buy as soon as it's available.

If you love Eric Millegan and cheerlead his career (as I do), try to track down a copy of his movie "On_Line" if you're up for seeing him like you have never, ever seen him before. His character is a total 180 from Zack. He's part of an excellent ensemble cast and really stands out. His character also gets the best ending, in my opinion. (But I will warn, it's *quite* racy!)
