There’s a bit of disturbing news for Bones fans. It seems that two of our regular interns have been cast in new series pilots. That doesn’t mean 100% that they will leave the show, because the pilots still might not get picked up by the network. And it’s possible that they could do an occasional episode while still on a new show, but not too likely. I’m torn. I don’t want to hope the series fail so they can stay on Bones, but I don’t want them to leave either.
We know that Joel David Moore, who plays Fisher, has been in Avatar…only one of the biggest films of recent months, and he’s got several other movies on his resume. It’s no surprise, then, that he’s been cast in a new NBC pilot. Here’s a bit more info about it:

Hart Hanson sent this message on Twitter telling us:
In “good for them, bad for us” department Bones pal @joeldavidmoore scores a pilot role in “Nathan vs Nurture”. Big congrats big talent. [Source: @HartHanson]
This news is also not too surprising. Carla Gallo, who plays Daisy, has a recurring role in the show Men of a Certain Age while she’s doing the intern gig on Bones. It’s highly unlikely that she could also continue both recurring roles, while doing a new series.
She’s been cast in a new FOX network series called The Station. Here’s more info about that:
Ben Stiller’s company is producing the already buzz-worthy “The Station,” a single-camera comedy about a covert CIA operative and his workmates who are embedded in a South American banana republic and with the task of installing a new dictator. Newcomer Kevin Napier wrote the script and the cast has some comedic heavy hitters: John Goodman, Justin Bartha (“The Hangover”), Rob Huebel (“I Love You Man”), Carla Gallo (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), Jordan Peele (“MadTV”) and Jose Zuniga (“Twilight”).

I’ll update you once there is more news about either of these.
