The squints and Booth on Bones have faced the Grave Digger, Gormogon and Booth's old sniper pal Broadsky, however in season seven they will be facing a new kind of villain.
Andrew Leeds has been cast as Christopher Pellant, who will serve as a recurring bad guy throughout Bones season seven.
Pellant is a super smart computer hacker who is introduced to the show as being under house arrest for shutting down communications for the Department of Defense, putting a lot of soldiers' lives in danger. He's confined to his home and has no Internet access, but he's still able to commit a series of murders.
It's about time we see Bones leaping into the 21st century with its villains, and I am curious to see how this story line plays out. Bones does procedural cases very well,however it's never quite figured out how to handle a long-term villain. Gormogon was cursed by the writers' strike while Broadsky and the Grave Digger showed up so sporadically that they never actually felt like ongoing mysteries, just a series of stand-alone cases.
Leeds has a few television credits, including Matt's evil friend on the first two seasons of FX's Nip/Tuck and, more recently, as a steampunk dueler on a season three episode of Castle.
Bones season seven starts Thursday, November 3 at 9pm on FOX.
