at . Comments

Fox’s Bones spinoff just added a BIG cast member.

Michael Clarke Duncan has been tapped to co-star in the project, which will be introduced in the 19th episode of Bones this season (tomorrow night's is just the 10th).

The Bones spinoff, based on The Locator books by Richard Greener, centers on Walter Sherman (a.k.a. "The Locator"), a former military policeman who can find anything.

Michael Clarke Duncan is coming to Bones this spring.

That role is still being cast. Duncan will portray Leo, Walter’s partner. He's described as "a rawhide cowboy philosopher," a talented eccentric who meshes with Bones.

This would mark the first regular TV gig for the 53-year-old Duncan, who is probably best known for his Oscar-nominated role as John Coffey in The Green Mile.

Thoughts on Duncan's casting, and/or who should play The Locator? Share!

Bones Quotes

Booth: I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here, look, um, hey. Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you because you were irritating me and, uh, you chased me down, and you caught up to me and I said to you 'listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row' and you said to me--
Brennan: I can be a duck.
Booth: Yeah. You know we had been chasing each other for a long time. Chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and snakes. And now chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy. But now, we, uh, we don't have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.

Save the girls.
