Surprised at first, Deschanel quickly rallied and began picking up paper bones with rapid speed. A humerus, a clavicle, a sternum and even a zygomatic bone got stuck to an increasingly amazed Gunn. It looks like nine years of playing a forensics expert rubbed off.
On “Bones,” Deschanel plays Dr. Temperance Brennan, a prickly but brilliant scientist who solve crimes and flirts with David Boreanaz. The actress is excellent at both of these things. And apparently, she has paid attention to the science as well as to the handsome co-star.
