'SEAL Team' Preview: David Boreanaz Is One of America's Best

Source: http://www.buddytv.com/articles/seal-team/video-seal-team-preview-david-66035.aspx

David Boreanaz is headed straight back to TV after his stint on Bones, and his new show SEAL Team is looking promising. Boreanaz plays elite Navy SEAL Jason Hayes in this high-action, hour long CBS drama.

Hayes is charming and gregarious, but he is also saddled with the trauma of past missions, hunting some of the world's most dangerous and evil villains. He and his team are sent to some of the most remote and treacherous parts of the world to keep America safe from its enemies.

Being heroes puts an incredible strain on their personal lives. Suffering from PTSD, Hayes is in therapy for a particularly damaging experience, and he struggles to find balance between his emotional issues, his duty and his family.

Hayes is part of a superior squad, but workplace politics can sometimes interfere with how well they get along with each other. Max Thieriot plays the young hot shot, Clay, who works as a foil to Boreanaz' Hayes. The show also features Neil Brown, Jr. (Insecure), A.J. Buckley (Pure), Toni Trucks (NCIS: New Orleans) and Jessica Pare (Mad Men).

Boreanaz spoke to TV Insider about his new role as Jason Hayes, and what it's like to play a character with such a complicated emotional history. He said, "Jason Hayes is a flawed SEAL team operative leader who's the best of the best, but he's trying to hold it all together [personally]. He's very comfortable on missions. He thrives on them -- being in the military is his love, his passion. When he gets home he finds he has difficulty dealing with certain things, like relationships. He has two kids, he's gone through a separation and is a hypersensitive guy."

About the military aspect of the show, the former Bones actor was thrilled to work with former SEAL operatives as consultants. He said, "Our consulting producer Mark Semos was very influential in me doing this show [and understanding these men]. He told me: SEAL guys go all in. If they're going to do shots of tequila, it's a whole bottle. There are a number of lost team members Mark still has in his phone. He can't acknowledge [that loss] yet. I don't even know when that can happen for him."

Boreanaz told TV Insider that he was attracted to the "brotherhood" of the show, and his chemistry with the other actors really shows. Of course, he can do no TV wrong, but SEAL Team looks like it could be a breakout hit of the 2017 fall season.

SEAL Team premieres September 26 at 9/8c on CBS. Want more news? Like our SEAL Team Facebook page.

'Bones' creator takes thrill ride with 'The Driver'

When a long-running television series ends, the creator can be eager to try something different. Hart Hanson followed up 12 seasons of “Bones,” based on novels by Kathy Reichs, with a novel of his own, and it’s a very good one.

In “The Driver,” Michael Skellig is an ex-soldier who runs a Los Angeles limousine company employing some of the military’s misfits.

Skellig has a war-tested instinct for danger, and in the opening, a voice in the wind leads him into a nightclub just in time to save his client, a celebrity skateboarder named Bismarck Avila, from a chaotic and confusing attack.

Kathy Reichs’ thrillers (30 million and counting) have been turned into flesh and blood with the TV hit Bones, but it’s her day-job cases as a forensic anthropologist – from the butcher serial killer to the murderous in-laws – that will leave you chilled to the bone!

She prides herself on being a ‘voice from beyond the grave’ for those who can no longer speak for themselves. Forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, known to all as ‘the bones lady’, is one of the world’s leading experts in finding out how, where and when someone died – often handling those who have endured the most gruesome and grisly ends imaginable.

‘No one starts off the day thinking they will end up on my table,’ she says with a half-smile. ‘I handle a lot of murder cases and deaths that need forensic explanation.

‘Someone has to tell their story. And that’s where I come in.’

Emily Deschanel Reveals Finale Scene That Nearly Made Her 'Bawl,' Reacts to David Boreanaz' New Gig

Unlike her former co-star David Boreanaz, who just signed on to headline CBS’ Navy SEAL-themed drama pilot, leading lady Emily Deschanel will not be diving back into the job market so soon after wrapping her 12-year stint on Bones.

“David texted me the news and I wrote back, ‘Amazing. Good on you,'” the actress recalls. “I’m just so impressed that he’s willing to do that right now. But that’s not where I’m at. I’m at a place where I need time to grieve and process the show ending. I’m still recovering.”

Luckily, Deschanel agreed to briefly pause her post-Bones detox to answer a few questions about Tuesday’s series finale.

Top ten moments from ‘Bones’ as the long-running Fox crime drama comes to an end Tuesday night

Source: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/top-ten-moments-bones-fox-drama-ends-article-1.3010039

“Bones,” one of the longest-running will-they-won’t-they shows on TV, finally comes to a close Tuesday night after 12 seasons of murder.

Two hundred and forty-five episodes of forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI agent Seeley Both (David Boreanaz) flirting around dead bodies told the stories of Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin), Jack Hodgins (T.J. Thyne), Camille Saroyan (Tamara Taylor), Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley) and a revolving cast of “squinterns.”

But somehow, Hart Hanson’s underrated drama balanced the larger romances with weekly, and sometimes season-long, stories that stayed fresh — even if the corpses didn’t.

As “Bones” ends at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, we take a look at the crime drama’s best moments:

Booth and Brennan’s second kiss (“The Santa in the Slush,” season 3, episode 9)
Under strong duress from Caroline Julian (Patricia Belcher), the forensic anthropologist and the FBI agent share their second kiss — and the first in real-time — under the Christmas mistletoe. Booth and Brennan maintained their strict professional line for a few more seasons, but the 100th episode of “Bones” kept viewers coming back for more.
