David Boreanaz takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test (in "the weirdest place I've ever done an interview")

Davidboreanaz_lIn honor of Bones‘ return tonight with a two-hour season premiere (Fox, 8 p.m. ET), I sat down with David Boreanaz yesterday and resurrected the EW Pop Culture Personality Test. Click here to read about how he used to pretend that he was Craig Sheffer to get into bars in 1994 (possibly my favorite story ever), what he asked Farrah Fawcett when he wrote her a fan letter as a child (we think he was joking?), and why he doesn’t believe in TiVo or DVRs (fascinating… but wrong). He also went off on Heroes, a.k.a. "the most overrated show on TV," and Fox, for giving Fringe the Tuesday night pairing with House that he clearly wanted — so that’s enjoyable, too. As for this "weirdest place" that he’s ever done an interview? In need of a quiet location at the Trump International Hotel & Tower, we were sent to the spa waiting room. The soothing music almost lulled him to sleep on a comfy cream leather couch. Luckily, there was just enough foot traffic to keep him awake — and laughing. He greeted every hotel employee that passed through and told one robed woman that she’d made a good choice when she grabbed an orange from the fruit platter. (Though he’d later steal a banana…) When Ivanka Trump walked by, leading a large tour of suits, he repeated "Bones, 8 o’clock, Wednesday nights, best show on television" on loop. (One woman said she was now going to program the show on her DVR — ha!)

If you’re in the mood for more Bones talk, check out the The Writers in the Bonecast, a podcast hosted by Lindsey Patten of the ABY forum and Wendy Young of Obsessed With Bones. They invited myself and Jamie Frevele of The Huffington Post to participate in a 90-minute rumble with them last weekend. We covered the season-three finale, the Hodgela storyline (snooze), whether we want to see Zack return in Season 4 (cut and run, I say!), and if/when/how Booth and Brennan should get together.

    I love this man. I caught a repeat when he was on Graham Norton and watching him Pop and Lock and throw his socks into the audience. He freakin rocks man.

  • MsDaisy

    I bet Craig Sheffer now tells people he’s on Bones.

  • Nick

    I still need to start watching / catching up on Bones. I’ve been meaning to ever since it started…


  • bootsycolumbia

    I admit that I don’t watch Bones on a regular basis, but after this interview, I’m going to start. What a cool, down-to-earth guy.

  • Anne

    You should interview him for every segment of this that you do. I would read that.

  • lawyergirl77

    Seriously, he would be the perfect man… if he wasn’t a stinkin’ Flyers fan!!
    But, then again, I’m sure that a man of his clearly superior intelligence could be shown the light and convinced to cheer for a clearly superior hockey team (the Canadiens)!
    (Yes, I know the Flyers beat the Canadiens this year. Yes, I’m still bitter. No, I’m not sorry. But I would be sorry if I was talking to DB!!)

    I think David is entertaining as heck, I wish him well, and I used to be a big Bones fan, but they lost me last season with the Zach twist.

  • Michelle

    Mandi – thanks for all the “Bones” related info. Loved the interview with David and the Bonecast link. You single-handedly got me to start watching “Bones” which I now am hooked on, and I was happy to hear that others weren’t in love with the whole Zach turn of events.
    Keep it up! Thanks!

  • Tara

    I’m so glad someone finally made the connection between he and Craig Sheffer. I’ve thought they looked alike for years.

  • Rob

    Any guy who had a crush on Farrah Fawcett is OK in my book…seems like a real down-to earth guy too. I think I actually heard him say on a talk show that he actually lived down the street from Farrah..wow..hope she keeps her shades closed LOL.
