Interview: TJ Thyne
by Elisa Pérez
TJ Thyne, the actor who plays Dr. Jack Hodgins on the popular FOX series, “Bones” has given us a few minutes of his time to answer our questions. Few weeks later it was confirmed the renewal of the show for a ninth season this is what he said:
1. Why did you accept this paper role?
I was at a time in my life where I said “I want to be a series regular on a Show” I tested for several pilots that pilot season, including a few roles on The Office, then I got a call from Greg Yaitanes who was directing the pilot of a show called “Brennan” later changed to BONES.
He said “there’s a part you aren’t right for, but I have a feeling you may put a spin on it so I want you to give it a go”
It was written as an older character who always wore shorts and had big bottle glasses and looked like a bug. I read it and thought…this is a great character! I love the writing but I wanted to play him young and eager and playful and opinionated instead of as written. So when I went to the audition, that’s how I played him. Hart Hanson and Barry Josephson were there and we hit it off right away. The rest is history 😉
2. Which is the best of working on BONES set?
We have the best cast and the greatest crew. It’s like going to work everyday with a room full of friends. That’s the best part.
3. What is the first you like of the character?
I like that he’s quirky. He’s off the beaten path, he’s got his own way of doing things and I love how enthusiastic he gets about his job. Most of all, I love that he’s a romantic.
