Anytime we hear that John Ratzenberger is going to be appearing in anything, there are two thoughts that enter our brain. First, is that we must be talking about a Pixar movie, and second, that it is probably going to be amazing. The man otherwise known as Cliff from “Cheers” is fairly particular about what he chooses to appear in, and we are glad to see that he has added “Bones” season 9 to that list.
So what sort of role are we going to see him play on the Fox drama? According to Entertainment Weekly, Ratzenberger will be stopping by the second episode this year in the role of Bill Schumacher, a man who attends a couples retreat with his wife Ethel in order to try and work on his marriage. Of course (and as always when you’re talking about “Bones”), there is a catch. There is some sort of secret that Bill will be hiding, and we’re sure that Booth and Brennan will come into play here somehow.
First of all, let’s start with the obvious. Isn’t it fantastic to potentially see Booth and Brennan spending some time together at such a place? It seems like almost every mystery show featuring a couple decides to do this “couples retreat” episode in some shape or form, and it’s typically pretty entertaining. It’s a chance to get the characters in some pretty awkward situations, especially for our couple here who may not be on the best of terms still in the wake of the botched proposal.
Let’s do stop for a minute to talk about the “Bones” casting. Are you a fan of it? We want to hear some more of your thoughts below! Also, be sure to head on over to the link here if you want to see more of what the plans are for this season at present.
