"Bones" will team Sarah Michelle Gellar's real-life husband Freddie Prinze Jr. with her "Buffy" on-screen lover, David Boreanaz. The "Scooby-Doo" actor is reported to have been cast in season 9 of the long-running crime procedural series. He's currently slated to appear in one episode, but there's a possiblity that he will recur in another episode.
The Ray Bronson of "I Know What You Did Last Summer" will be introduced in the September 16 season opener. He will star as Danny, a very covert CIA agent, who is described as being "armed and dangerous." According to TVLine which broke the casting news, Danny's "also an old associate of Booth's who has an interest in Booth and Brennan's current murder investigation."
Danny is just one of several figures from Booth's past who will appear in the upcoming season as revealed by Boreanaz at last week's Comic-Con. The show is also casting an actor to play an ex-priest from Booth's Rangers days.
The "Bones" gig is Prinze Jr.'s first TV role since 2010, when he starred as Cole Ortiz on "24". In the same year, he also guest starred in one episode of "Psych".
