Much like Betty White herself, Dr. Mayer is described as sharp as a tack, experienced and fabulous. She’s an expert of anthropology and fantasy football with more than half a century of experience under her belt. Though Dr. Mayer will be on Bones in a mostly altruistic role helping the case, there will be conflict. Brennan and Mayer will be competing with one another in a battle of wits to prove who is the smarter scientist.

It certainly sounds like the seven-time Emmy winner’s time on Bones will be an enjoyable one. Are you looking forward to see Betty on Bones? Are you hoping it turns into a larger more recurring role? Or is there such a thing as too much Betty White?

Bones premieres Thursday October 1 at 8pm on FOX
