Bones Casting News - Roxy

For the anti-spoiler crowd, I won't say much. But a character from the November 12th episode, "The Skull in the Sculpture" has been cast. Check out Kristen at E!'s exclusive news on Roxy's casting here.

Bones Ratings: Outhouse #11 for the week

I hope Bones keeps this up! The Season 4 premier, Yanks in the U.K. was #10 in the ratings for it's week. The followup episode, The Man in the Outhouse, is in at #11. It's great just to be in the top 20, but I really hope keeps pulling in great numbers and holds it's own when the schedule is full of new shows. It definitely earns it's viewers. And it beat Fringe, which got 10 times the media attention!


On top of that, it's #6 for the week in the coveted 18-49 demographic. Go Bones!

Emily Deschanel & Her Boyfriend

Emily Deschanel is often reticent to talk about her love life and boyfriend. But at the recent Kitten Rescue "Fur Ball" she brought him along! Check out this picture (sorry for the watermark) of Emily Deschanel and her boyfriend together at the event, from Getty Images.

Eric Millegan in NYC

Monday night, September 15th, Eric Millegan took his cabaret show to New York City and appeared at Don't Tell Mama. Jamie Frevele was able to go see him in person and graciously provided a picture and a first hand accounting.

Thanks, Jamie! You can visit Jamie's Huffington Post blog here and her personal blog, Flummoxology, here.

Spoiler warning for the 2nd paragraph!

~*~ ~*~ ~*~

Had the opportunity to see Eric Millegan perform his Cabaret show at Don't Tell Mama in NYC last night. Obviously, we all know how talented Eric is, but it's nothing until you've seen him in his element, singing live. He sang a lot of songs from shows he's worked on and appearances he's made, including "Popular" from "Wicked," which he just did Saturday for the Point Foundation event honoring Kristen Chenoweth. He also had a funny story about how he was to present it - it's a girl's song, sung to another girl, does he sing it to the audience, what kind of mic does he use ("I'm going to use a body mic," he declared). But his voice has such range and strength; we were lucky to see a preview on "Bones" when Zack sang in the lab last season.

But the most fun part was meeting him afterwards. He definitely recognized my name from my Huffington Post and we ended up talking about the fan script I wrote, in which (as some of you know by now) Zack was not a killer. Eric gave me a really big, cryptic smile and said, "Watch September 24th." "Really? Is Zack not a killer?" "Watch September 24th." So, we should be in for a treat next week when, as Eric put it during his show, "Zack. Is. Back."

Bottom line: Eric Millegan is pretty much awesome in every way. Really great looking in person, amazing to listen to and watch, and extremely appreciative of the support he gets from everything - the venue, his friends, and his fans. If he's not a huge star, I will be baffled as to why.

Eric Millegan at Point Foundation Gala

On Saturday, September 13th, Eric Millegan appeared at the Point Foundation gala in LA. The Point Foundation "provides financial support, mentoring, leadership training and hope to meritorious students who are marginalized due to sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression."

He always makes an impression!

The Finger in the Nest: TV.com video

This is the same video for "The Finger in the Nest" that I mentioned on Sunday as being on FoxonDemand (US only). It's now up on TV.com, so all you non-US residents can see it too.

It even has the Jeannie stamp of "Ok for the spoiler-phobic." Check it out.

EW Soundbites: Bones

EW.com has daily "Sound Bites" videos highlighting TV moments from the day before. Check out the 9/11/08 video for a bit of Brennan and Angela from The Man in the Outhouse.

Thanks, Lindsey!
