Roswell star and recently ABC Family's Samurai Girl mainstay Brendan Fehr will be joining Fox's top-rated series Bones as Jared Booth, brother of FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz).  According to earlier reports, the appearance of Jared on Bones will potentially cause severe obstacles for the original duo, Bones (Emily Deschanel) and Booth.  Both Fehr and Boreanaz are products of highly successful WB series; Roswell for Fehr and Buffy the Vampire Slayer for Boreanaz.

“I'm going to be playing Jared Booth, D. Boreanaz's younger brother,” Fehr, 30, wrote on his personal site.  “At any rate, it's going to be a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to it.  The character is great and well written and will be something I haven't really done yet.  He's got a lot of stuff to work with on the screen and with a great back story so here's to not screwing it up.”

The Canadian actor moreover said that he's unsure if the appearance will extend to two or more episodes.

“It's been talked of it being an arc for a few episodes but as of now I'm just shooting one starting tomorrow and I'll leave the next episodes up to those who actually make those decisions,” he added.

All these, however, are yet to be confirmed by Fox.  On the other hand, unless Fehr proves to be a massive liar, this is pretty believable news.

On the next episode of Bones, a dismembered, headless body is found in a purple pool of water, in what seems to be this season's proclivity for severing body parts (last episode took off with a corpse's finger).  Upon investigation, the team finds out that the body belongs to a science fiction writer who had to deal with several mental problems.  With the head still missing, however, looking for sufficient evidence is proving to be a challenge.
