T.J. :(On landing his role on Bones): I was so ecstatic finding out I got this role. I had just finished the network test for Bones, which is the last "audition" you partake in after a long string of auditions for the same role (at the time of auditions, Bones was actually called Brennan, there's a little bit of trivia for ya). I was actually leaving the Fox lot to rush to another network, then to another studio to test for two other shows. I was in my car driving down Olympic Blvd., running my lines for the next character, when the director called me to say "hey, so you got the part of Dr. Jack Hodgins." My heart just jumped out of my body. I literally swerved a bit in my car and had to pull over on the side of the road just to take a breath. I was thrilled. I still am. Of all the parts I was testing for, this role was the one I really wanted to play. I think Hart Hanson has a genius way of writing characters and this character Jack has so much going on, so many layers, it's an actor's dream role… this actor's, at least!
