On Thursday, TVLine announced that actress and comedian Betty White is joining Bones for an episode in the fall. How exciting is that? I don't know about you, but I sure can't get enough of White. Anyways, as for her guest-starring gig, she'll only appear in one episode. Well, that's a bummer, but it sounds like it'll be worth it. Her character is named Dr. Beth Mayer, and she's the latest squintern at the Jeffersonian.
White's character is described as follows: "An accomplished, sharp as a tack squintern who is brought in to assist in a murder linked to fantasy football — which just happens to be one of her many areas of expertise. With a half-century of work under her belt, Dr. Mayer is considered the world’s most experienced forensic anthropologist, which will lead to some serious competition with Emily Deschanel’s Brennan."
Uh-oh, I sense some upcoming drama. As Bones fans know, Brennan, aka Bones, takes pride in her skills, talent and smarts. Whenever she is presented with someone who might give her a run for her money, well, sometimes she doesn't take to it kindly. If anyone is up for the job, it's definitely White. I mean, she's a legend, which means she could easily replace Deschanel on the series. She's a talent to be reckoned with.
Before you freak out too much, I'm clearly joking, but hey, you never know. White is a beloved actress, so maybe that means she'll appear in more than one episode and become a recurring character. It's the perfect time, especially with TV Land's Hot in Cleveland now canceled.
White's episode is slated to air in late October. Bones Season 11 premieres Thursday, Oct. 1 at 8/7c.
