Freddy Krueger to Haunt the Cast of Bones

Robert EnglundBeing an avid fan of Angel, I used to harbor a hetero mancrush on David Boreanaz. So much so that I eagerly tuned in to the pilot episode of his follow-up series, Bones. Then I tuned right out and never looked back. But today’s news has me ready to tune back it – at least to see how this all plays out.

TV Guide Magazine is reporting that Freddy Krueger himself (the real Freddy Krueger, that is), Robert Englund, will appear in an upcoming episode of Bones playing a demented janitor at Brennan’s old high school.

The story finds jaded Brennan planning to skip her high school reunion, until a murder sends her and Booth to the scene to investigate. Emily [Deschanel] has supplied the show with an actual photo of her taken during her high school years. “They wanted one of me not smiling, so they’re going to doctor it a bit,” says the actress.

It’s always great seeing Englund, though. I’m sure he’ll bring a little bit of fun to this episode.

    I also gave up on the show after watching a few episodes, but I will definitely see this for Englund.

    And yes he IS the actual Krueger. Accept no substitutes.

    He would make a great host for Nite tales. I wonder how that would be.
