TV Guide Scan: The Diamond in the Rough


Keck's Exclusives by William Keck

Bones in the Ballroom

Who knew Seeley Booth was such a twinkle toes? In a January episode of Fox's Bones, we'll learn that Booth (David Boreanaz) worked his way through college by teaching older ladies how to fox trot. That skill will come in handy when he and Brenann (Emily Deschanel) assume their Buck and Wanda Moosejaw aliases to go undercover as competitors on a TV show called Dance to the Top.

The outlandish hour is filled with cameos from teh cast of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, including Mary Murphy and Tyce Diorio as judges, recent winners Chehon Wespi-Tschopp and Eliana Giarard as competitors, and choreographer Dmitry Chaplin as the champ whose partner was murdered.

"I've been asked to pull out the HOt Tamale Train on a couple of the performances," says Murphy of her signature compliment, which she typically refuses to say out-side of SYTYCD. "But I don't hink there's going to be a lot fo praise going for Buck and WAnda." The reason: The perplexed judges will mistake Buck and Wanda's pursuit of a suspect onto the dance floor as "an avant-garde performance," says Diorio.

Along with taking on his first acting gig, Chaplin taught Boreanaz and Deschanel how to dance. "Emily picked up her waltz really fast," says Chaplin. "And David is a natural. But Booth knows heisn't all that good, so David doesn't try to be as good as... well, me."
