For some time now, FOX has been reportedly toying the idea of staging an episode that would find Bones' Booth and Brennan working on a case with Lie to Me's Doc Lightman, though a couple of months ago, an insider cautioned that "it's in the very early stages and may not even happen."
Sorry to disappoint fans but there's nothing official to report at this point. On the other hand, Bones
series creator Hart Hanson maintains that the idea is still on the table and he's is certainly up for it.
"We have our own human lie detector in Sweets, so I think that would be a lot of fun," Hanson told Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello
. "It would be fun to have Gordon [Stephen Fry] there, too, and watch Stephen and Tim Roth face off."
Past crossovers have not been successful for some shows so, understandably, not everyone is keen on watching a Bones
and Lie to Me
crossover. But Hanson has another interesting reason for bringing in Tom Roth's Lightman--- one that would probably pique viewers' interest as early as now.
Apparently, Hanson is thinking that Lightman "could look at Booth and Brennan and know who's lying and who isn't." I bet that would really be a fun episode to watch considering that the fifth season of Bones
is all about toying with Booth and Brennan's emotions.
No other details have been discussed about the said crossover but I'll keep you posted on this one. For now, check out our exclusive interview with Bones' Emily Deschanel
and Tamara Taylor
