Interview! Soaps.com sat in on a conference call with Executive Producer Stephen Nathan. When asked what fans could expect from the upcoming 200th episode Nathan shared, “I’m going to be very, very vague and circumspect. It will be an episode unlike any we’ve ever done before. We’re going to have as many people who have crossed our paths as we possibly can. There are limitations to that of course, some limitations that we can’t possibly get around. But we wanted to give a little gift to the fans, to the people who have watched ‘Bones’ for ten years or even three or five or six, give them a little gift showing our characters in a situation they would never normally find themselves in and just see our characters from a different perspective. It’s not a dream show, but it is unique. It is going to be visually something we’ve never seen before on ‘Bones’ and stylistically something we’ve never seen on ‘Bones’ before.” Tune in to FOX on Thursdays at 8:00 PM.
Interview! Soaps.com sat in during a conference call with Andre Braugher. When asked what interested him in playing the role of Captain Ray Holt on the FOX comedy Braugher shared, “Well, I think it was the reputation of Mike Schur and Dan Goor. I am a fan of ‘Parks and Rec’ and I saw over the seasons they created, in my mind, an ever expanding world of loveable goofballs and they were quite adept at creating a mature kind of interesting comedy. I said to myself I felt like I would be in good hands playing this character with these guys at the helm. That was one of the main considerations, as was the opportunity to work with Andy.” In terms of his favorite part of taping the show the actor stated, “I enjoyed the episodes a lot outside the precinct where we go on our adventures and such. I’ve enjoyed our Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes. I’ve enjoyed ‘The Party’ in particular. ‘The Party’ was really an opportunity to see everyone in a really drastically different atmosphere than the bullpen and I just found it to be a lot of fun. It was a great script and a lot of fun to film. In retrospect, ‘The Party’ maybe it was Episode 16, I can’t remember, but towards the end of the season, I thought that was my favorite episode.” Tune in Sundays at 8:30 PM.
New pilot! Josh Holloway (“Lost,” ex-Sawyer) has been cast to play a former FBI agent named Will Bowman in the USA Network’s new pilot. This is a reunion of sorts, as Holloway will once again get to work with former “Lost” producer Carlton Cuse.
Renewed! Lifetime will bring back its drama series for season three, which will include thirteen new episodes. Fans can expect the show to return in the spring of 2015.

Actress, producer and supermodel Naomi Campbell will appear in the recurring role of Camilla in FOX’s upcoming 2015 series. Her character is an alluring woman caught up in a steamy affair with a young potential heir named Hakeem (Bryshere Gray). “Naomi is a beautiful actress. Underrated in my mind,” said co-creator and executive producer Lee Daniels. “She will be wonderful as Camilla. I am truly thrilled to have one of my close friends join us.” Campbell added, “It’s an honor to follow in the footsteps of actresses like Halle Berry, Oprah, Gabourey Sidibe and Mo’Nique and work with Lee Daniels. I’m looking forward to joining Lee and this amazing cast on set.”
