‘Bones’ Welcomes Booth’s New Partner, Agent James Aubrey (Video)

Actor John Boyd is joining the cast of Fox’s long-running crime series

The Jeffersonian team was dealt a major blow with the death of Dr. Lance Sweets on the season premiere — but there’s a new agent joining Fox’s “Bones” this week.

FBI detective James Aubrey’s sarcasm and squeamishness around a dead body will almost surely get on Booth’s nerves. In real life, actor John Boyd (“The Carrie Diaries”) is ecstatic to be teaming up with David Boreanaz.

“It’s really fun to get to come onto a show and get to discover all of the stuff that everyone sort of takes for granted,” Boyd said in the above behind-the-scenes video.

“For John, it’s an opportunity for him to fall into a great family of where we work everyday,” Boreanaz said about his new partner.

While no one can ever truly replace Sweets, Detective Aubrey will be providing the comic relief for the blood-drenched crime series, picking up where actor John Francis Daley left off.
