  • Before They Were Famous: The stars of 'Bones'

    Season 7 of of the hit TV show “Bones” has begun, but before everyone delves back into “Bones” and Seeley Booth’s new baby drama together, the industrious pop culture site, determined to peel back the cover of your favorite stars before they were so famous, “dug up” some pics of the show’s lead stars to take a fun look back at the “Bones” cast before they started slicing and dicing at the Jeffersonian.

    David Boreanaz Then and Now as “Seeley Booth”

    THEN: It’s not hard to tell who this dashing senior is at Malvern Preparatory in Philadelphia back in 1987. Young Boreanaz (and his mile-high hair) got his start as an extra and was quickly snapped up for a guest spot on [gasp!] “Married… with Children.”

    NOW: Protective, loyal, and—most important—not a “squint,” Agent Booth spent most of last year exchanging longing glances of regret with “Bones” Brennan from across crime scenes. They must have resolved something, though, because last season ended with Brennan telling Booth she was pregnant with his baby! Talk about a cliffhanger!

    Emily Deschanel Then and Now as “Dr. Temperance Brennan”

    THEN: A young Emily, seen here in a picture from her senior yearbook at Crossroads School in L.A., is the eldest child of cinematographer Caleb Deschanel and actress Mary Jo Deschanel. She’s also actress Zooey Deschanel’s older, less hipster and non-singing sister.

    NOW: Dr. Temperance Brennan (“Bones”) went through a lot last season. First she found out that her super-science anthropology dig was a bust, then potential love interest Booth came back with a blonde journalist girlfriend. Then after he dumped the girl, he still didn’t confess his sweet, undying love for Bones. Fortunately, the doctor does have some proof—Bones will start the season very pregnant with Booth’s baby.

    Michaela Conlin Then and Now as “Angela Montenegro”

    THEN: Like David, Michaela is another Pennsylvania native on the “Bones” set. Michaela got started with parts on “Law and Order,” then “Love the Hard Way” (pictured here) and a string of cop and medical shows before winding up on the uber-successful “Bones.”

    NOW: Brennan’s best friend, artist, wife, and now new mom. Last season ended with Angela giving birth with husband Hodgins by her side. We’re sure she’ll have lots of pregnancy advice for Bones, who will not take it because it’s not logical enough.
