T.J.: (On his character Jack Hodgins, on Bones) The character breakdown/description of Dr. Hodgins at the auditions was a guy who always wears shorts and flip-flops, who has glasses that make him look like a bug. I don't know… I just didn't see the character that way at all. I mean he's a doctor in a lab with three advanced degrees in entomology, botany and mineralogy. His occupation alone seems to suggest "dork" but I don't think he is. Jack's a real guy who happens to be a brilliant scientist -- it's just a talent he has, but it doesn't define who he is as a human being. Outside of work, if you were to meet him at a party, you wouldn't know what he did but you'd have a great conversation and think, "I like this guy."
Jack really loves the hardball science, but he is madly passionate about women. He just is. That's why when he goes into the lab one day and notices Angela, just really notices her, he's hooked.
