Just stop reading this post now if you don't want even the tiniest spoiler, like a shooting location. (I don't really consider these spoilers. Would it really tell you anything about say, "The Man in the Mud" to know they went to the woods to shoot a scene?)
Either way, you were warned!
So, apparently, there will be an episode this fall that takes place at a chicken farm. Emily Deschanel is happy about this so that, similar to the dog fighting episode, viewers can be exposed to the realities of such a location and reconsider their reliance on chicken as food.
David Boreanaz...not so much.
Bones star David Boreanaz is threatening to exercise his power as a producer by skipping an episode later this fall that centers on a major phobia of his. “Are you kidding me?” David exclaimed, when I told him that series creator Hart Hanson is planning for his character, Seeley Booth, and Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) to investigate a death at a chicken farm. “This is like some kind of bad joke,” says the actor, who has a lifelong fear of birds. “Hart can play that game, but I’m going to kill him…. I just won’t show up. I hate birds. They freak me out. It’s more roosters that I’m fearful of, but I’m not crazy about chickens, either.”But, Hart has been around David Boreanaz long enough to know what he can and can't get away with. From his twitter:
After all these years working with DB I know better than to put him on a chicken farm. We're clever that way.
