Previously, we reported that David Boreanaz is all set up to direct his first Bones episode.  Of course, it bears mentioning that the 39-year-old had directed an episode of Angel and it was a fairly good episode, if fans of the show are to be believed.  Despite admitting that Bones is different and it can be “a squeamish business” at least relative to vampire series Angel (which is somehow dark but not gross), it is still comforting to know that Boreanaz has experience in directing and he won't venture to the entire thing blind.  "I like the process of it so it'll be a good time.  I enjoy the directing aspect, producing and acting - all the spiel!"

As for Boreanaz, who plays the male lead Seeley Booth on the Fox procedural, he admits that he is not immune to being grossed out whenever they shoot Bones, as it regularly deals with icky fake body parts that are not for the faint of heart.  "You just make sure that you're not eating or having lunch," he said.  "It gets a bit graphic, the bodies that happen, they always have the maggots that are eating the bodies or a rat that's scurrying in and out."

"It's amazing how really gross they can make something look and how really real it is," David said, in praise of the Bones' props people.  “They never cease to surprise me.”

On the last episode of Bones, a skull and various remains (bones, in other words) were discovered in a tree in a nationally protected wooded reserve, and the duo were on scene to investigate.  As it turned out, the bones belong to an ex-Marine who'd been missing for three years.  Their probe led them to a super-elite and exclusive private school where the ex-Marine was a “manny.”  Meanwhile, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) learned that her estranged father recently bagged a teacher post, something she wasn't so happy about, until much, much later.

Unfortunately, there won't be any new Bones episode until January 15, 2009.
