Good Q&A with Hart Hanson

I'm a little behind...I'm sorry!

Zap2It has a great little Q&A with Hart Hanson. There's some big spoiler talk in it about the season finale, but most of the article in spoiler-free.

Here are a few of the best non-spoiler parts:

Q: For such a bright woman, Brennan doesn't seem to be evolving much in her social skills. It is a source of comedy, but will she ever get significantly better?

A: What, you want to end the series? If you do, just say so.

Q: Will Angela's dad (played by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top) reappear?

A: Definitely.

Q: Are there other celebrities who'd like to be on the show,just waiting for the right script?

A: Yes, we've actually gotten to the point where people are asking to be on the show, who love the show and think it would be cool to come aboard. Perhaps because of Billy Gibbons, these include a number of rock stars. We will find ways to use the ones we like and dodge the ones we don't.

Q: How'd you manage to get the peripatetic Stephen Fry -- a prolific Twitterer and blogger -- to stand still long enough to do another "Bones"? What's he doing, and when should that air?

A: Stephen Fry loves doing "Bones." We found his availability months ago, within a four-day window, and confirmed with him that he'd be in the episode then. At that time, we had no idea what the story would be, but we knew it would be intermingled with a Sweets story. He did not disappoint.

He remains one of our favourite ([sic] Hart's from Canada.) recurring guest stars, and we (and he) hope to see more of him in the future. The episode he shot for us is called "Mayhem on the Cross" and should air in April. (HCTV: Perhaps April 2) All of England is on alert.

Q: Now that your dad has been on the show -- he played the cranky vending-machine man in last Thursday's episode, from whom Booth (Boreanaz also directed the episode) snatched a free snack -- are there any other Hansons out there that we might see soon?

A: No more Hansons. Dad was enough, thank you, and he's old and fairly easy to handle compared to the rest.

I love that they figured out when they could get Stephen Fry and then built the story around him! He's worth it :)

So much for 11 episodes with no breaks. At the end of American Idol tonight, they announced that they will be on Wednesday and Thursday next week due to the President's speech on Tuesday. I checked and they are running American Idol at 8:00 on Thursday and Hell's Kitchen at 9:00. :(

It's true. It's on the schedule. Fox is the most unreliable, untrustworthy network ever. This sucks, big time.
