The Bones' Cast's Other Projects

Bones star David Boreanaz, aka FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth, shot a film last year called The Mighty Macs. It's expected to be released later this year. This time, he's in a role very different from the ones we are all accustomed to seeing him play. He'll play the part of a slightly chauvinistic husband of a pioneering women's basketball coach.

By the looks of the movie's official trailer, it might be a big hit. We should probably bring tissues with us to the theater, since we may shed a tear or two. Take a look here.

Emily Deschanel, aka Dr. Temperance Brennan

This summer, Emily Deschanel has a new project underway. While Bones is on break, Emily will be shooting a movie called Perfect Family. She'll be in a major role in this film, unlike her small role in last year's movie My Sister's Keeper. Here's a short synopsis of the film:

"A devoutly Catholic wife and mother has been nominated for one of the church's top awards. She then goes about trying to prove she has the "perfect" family, refusing to accept them for who they are."

The film also stars Jason Ritter and Kathleen Turner and is expected to release in 2012. You can read what Emily has to say about doing a film during her time off this summer in an interview she did yesterday (spoiler conference call).

TJ Thyne & Tamara Taylor, aka Dr. Jack Hodgins & Dr. Camille Saroyan

TJ Thyne, who plays Hodgins on Bones, has a movie expected out later this year in which he plays a priest. His character for this film is quite different from the fun loving but conspiracy theory touting character he plays on Bones. Here's a bit of a description for the film:

"'The Pardon' is the incredible true story of Toni Jo Henry, a story of love and despair, of hope and redemption, found in the only woman ever to be electrocuted by the State of Louisiana."

But TJ, who always seems to have multiple projects hatching at once, is also currently working on a film called Shuffle. There is no available information about the film's plot, but there are rumors that Tamara Taylor, who plays Dr. Cam Saroyan on Bones, is part of the movie's cast too.

There's a third movie in the works for TJ too. This film could be a big box-office hit, since it also stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Laurence Fishburne. It's called The Last Full Measure and it may be out late this year. Here's a summary of its plot:

"An ambitious government bureaucrat is given an unwelcome assignment that could harm his carefully orchestrated career, to complete a long-unfinished report on whether the nation's highest award for bravery should, after 40 years, be given to a fallen hero. His investigation leads him down a path he could not have imagined and changes his life and the lives of others in the process."

John Francis Daley, aka Dr. Lance Sweets

And last, but certainly not least is John Francis Daley, who plays Dr. Lance Sweets on Bones. His Bones character is a case of art imitating life, or vice-versa. No, he's not really a psychologist, but like Sweets, he's a writer.

John has written six screenplays that are in various stages of development. The film that is the furthest along in the creation process is called Horrible Bosses. It sounds like a fun ride, since this is what it's about:

"Three friends conspire to murder their awful bosses when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness."

The other five screenplays he's written are named The $40,000 Man, Hours of Fun, Vacation, Cal of the Wild and Burt Wonderstone. Even from these titles, it's a sure bet that John is great at writing comedies. I can't wait to see these films because they all sound terrific.

So it looks as if the cast of Bones always manages to stay busy, even when the series is taking a break. With so many very talented cast members, that's no big surprise.

Thanks for the summary of all the cast's projects! I'm looking forward to seeing them play other characters =) But I thought Emily's movie is already starting filming this a 2012 release seems really late.

Yeah, 2012 seems so far away!! Movies seem to take about a year to come out after filming, so I expected next fall since Emily said she started rehearsals this week. Release dates also get changed a lot, though, so we'll have to wait and see.

Finally. My God. I've been waiting for that movie for two years already!!

Mighty Macs? I liked, Our Lady of Victory better.
