The Right Man for the Job


…From the pages of South Jersey Magazine…
 
He’s an actor, a director and a producer. If there’s one thing that David Boreanaz has learned in his nearly two decades in television, it’s versatility.

David Boreanaz is a little upset, but he’s hiding it as best he can. As we converse, he seems to be in good spirits; his hit show on Fox, Bones, is enjoying its eighth season and he’s just gotten back from dropping his 10-year-old son Jaden off at school. Unfortunately, for the Philadelphia native and huge sports fan, the NHL lockout is causing him great angst. Last night was supposed to be the first Flyers game of the new season and the void has been difficult for him to fill. “I’m not happy about it,” he says. “It’s not fun being a hockey fan right now; it sucks.”

Boreanaz isn’t just your typical fan of the Orange and Black; he’s more like an extended member of the team. It’s not uncommon for him to hit the ice with the players when they’re out West or to find him at the Skate Zone in Voorhees taking part in practice when he’s back home visiting. He calls them by their first names (“Claude and Danny”) and he speaks on the phone regularly with the brass of the organization (“I know they’re bored and people want to get the season going.”).
