Andrew Hacker - full time cast member?

The author of this article feels that Bones needs to add Diedrich Bader (Hacker) to its permanent cast. That's definitely an interesting idea!
Love it or hate it? What do you make of his reasons?

Grissom's Girl said...

I agree. I pass!

Sarah said...

No thank you. lol

Meg said...

Nope- he doesn't bring enough to the table

While I think Diedrich Bader is hilarious, I don't think he'd fit as a full time cast member. There really isn't room for another FBI agent and unless he's just going to follow Brennan around like a lap dog, I don't know what he'd do. I do like him as a guest star though!

i completely agree with his reasoning. i've definitely noticed a lack w/o Cullen. i think when Booth has someone besides Brennan to fight with, greater leaps are taken in their personal relationship. and sure, it's late days now and she's probably pretty secure in his trust/faith with her, but i think now, more than ever, he needs to show her that he believes in her.

LA said...

HAte it! Seriously? He's a doofus and not fitting of the role he is supposed to hold. Who would seriously believe this guy as a head honcho in the FBI?

No, No, No! I agree with LA, his "doofus-ness" does not fit with the role of an FBI agent. Blech.

Let's send him off on a cruise with Sully, please! :-D

Hey, I like Hacker! I wouldn't want to see him all the time, but I would like having him around as a regular. He's a fun foil for Brennan's personal development and Booth's rebellious nature.

Kate said...

Regular guest star, I mean.

I think an FBI boss would be a good addition to the cast on a semi-regular basis.

I think Hacker is a bit too goofy in that role, however. He does have a dynamic with Booth that could be explored more. If Booth's past becomes a season 6 staple, I could see them adding a FBI boss for Booth to but heads with. Someone that both Booth and Brennan have to deal with and keep Booth from pulling out his gun and shooting.

I do NOT like Hacker around at all. He's too goofy.

I love Hacker! He's a good dose of reality in Booth's world.

I actually think it's a great idea! I was just thinking the other day about how we have all these lab people (Angela, Hodgins, Cam, and the squinterns) but not too many FBI people. Brennan's the bridge between the two worlds, obviously, but with just Booth and Sweets, I think we could use another FBI character. I wouldn't like to see Hacker stick around as a long-term boyfriend for Brennan (though I think part of him already knows he doesn't have much of a shot with her,) but I like the character, so I wouldn't mind seeing more of him.

Dijea said...

I don't like him in this role. He's more comic relief that FBI Deputy Director. I VOTE NO.

absolutely not. i dont like him at all. not just because he and bones have a thing but he just gets on my nerves. he's not even cute

Anonymous said...

he's pretty funny, so yes!

and he can have a thing for bones as long as he likes, that way booth can get other hot woman on the show!

i've been a fan of bader since office space, but hacker would be, at best, an awkward full time character to write for.

I would hate that because I think he is gross, sorry I don´t like him.

Boy, I would love for him to be Brennan's boyfriend. Keep him around. Booth would then finally realize that she is not the ONE. With her out of his mind, he would be free to pursue other woman(in this case they would be pursing him). Hart Hanson then has a good reason to keep them apart.

Shep said...

Definitely not! I hate Hacker - he's just too goofy and doesn't really do much as a character in his own right or for the show. He's just there to provide an alternative love interest for Brennan and to make Booth look cooler (which he doesn't need anyway). I don't find him believable as an FBI agent and I don't think he's funny, either. His presence just irks me.

I say bring back Cullen! I miss him. Did we ever get an explanation to where he went or was he just not mentioned by the characters after a certain point? I can't remember?

erinskaya said...

Shep--

the last episode with Cullen in it was 'the graft in the girl' season one. we haven't heard from or about him since.

Nera said...

I disagere, how can he be whole the time? I don't mind him, but we are waiting for B&B together. Ok I don't want to them having sex in the finaly, if the have I'll stop watching Bones, I like them have a kiss or declaration of love, but not sex. Ok Booth has catfish for 2 epiodes but why Brenn will have Andrew whole time, cannot stand it...
If he stays more stop watching, I swear. B&B should be starting becaome a cauple, litlle steps will be great :)At the end they have to be together!!!

Elizabeth said...

Hate it.

Tia said...

I say he is far too weird and a bit of a doofus. Diedrich may have been good as Oswald on Drew Carrey but he don't fit this role. So my answer is don't keep him..make him go away.

Obama 2012 said...

He doesn't behave like the sort of man who makes deputy director of the FBI.

When you think of the self-selection...the creep/jerk/jock/law-and-order-equals-morality mentality of the successful FBI agent, this guy just doesn't jive.

Besides, they need someone who'll piss Booth off, and drive him nuts.

at least he will approve a gun for Brennan. :-)
