Geoff Stults Cast as "The Locator" on Bones Spinoff

by at . Comments

The much-anticipated Bones spinoff has found its lead.

Geoff Stults of 7th Heaven, October Road and Happy Town fame will front the Fox pseudo-pilot, which will air as the 19th episode of Bones‘ current season.

Stults' casting, as reported by TV Line, concludes a lengthy search for the new show's star. The pilot was originally expected sooner, but was pushed back.

Stults, G.

Based on The Locator series of two books written by Richard Greener, the prospective new series will center on Walter Sherman, a.k.a. “The Locator.”

Stults will play the former military policeman who can find anything. Michael Clarke Duncan will play his partner Leo, a "tough cowboy philosopher."

What do you think of the duo at the helm of this potential Bones spinoff? Hit the comments and tell us if you're looking forward to this episode.

This was an AWESOME episode! If Bones was this witty all the time the ratings would be even higher. Kudos to Hart for such a well written episode! I'm definitely on board for the new series. I've loved Geoff since October Road and he's a perfect fit for paranoid Walter!

My daughter and I have been Bones fans from the start and just LOVED this episode. I'd no idea this was in the works, but, as we watched it, we theorized it was to be a spin off and I sure hope it succeeds. We were laughing out heads off! Great casting and writing.

I enjoyed the spinoff episode of Bones, even more than 'regular' Bones. Looking forward to the new series.

Thought the spinoff was ridiculous the only good part was the ending where Geoff thought he might have a chance with the Bones lady, because Booth dislikes him so much it might bring the will they won't they scenerio to a climax, that would be the only good idea the writers could write about to keep their existing fan base, although I have been fairly disappointed with season 6 of bones the exception being the episodes directed by David Boreanaz I am still a loyal fan hoping the writers have got back into the game of writing some meaty episodes for our 2 favourite characters to rescue the show for another season.
