Emily Deschanel is keeping it in the family!
Though fans have been waiting to hear if the Bones star's real-life sister Zooey Deschanel will be reprising her role as Emily's character's cousin for the big wedding episode, E! News can confirm that is not happening.
Zooey is too busy shooting that little show of hers called New Girl. And despite rumors that Emily might play Zooey's character's sister on New Girl, that's not in the cards either, according to sources.
Still, we just discovered another very cool family twist!
E! News can exclusively report that a family member is guest starring on the wedding episode of Bones: Emily's real life husband, actor/writer David Hornsby (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia)! Word is, he's playing a priest who may or may not be the one officiating the actual ceremony between Bones (Emily) and Booth (David Boreanaz). The episode is shooting this week. Here's hoping the priest doesn't break up the wedding!
Boreanaz hinted at this very real-life twist at the Fox Eco Casino Party in Santa Monica on Monday night, telling me: "It's exciting because we have some great guests. Some surprise guests. We don't actually know who may be marrying the two of us. That could be the biggest question out there and you have to really think hard about this one. I'll give you one hint. The person who is going to marry us is close to one of the cast members."
As for what else lies ahead for season nine, David teases: "Cyndi Lauper is going to come and sing at the wedding. And Freddie Prinze is coming on. We did a great undercover episode we're really excited about. And this whole Pelant serial killer thing…We get rid of one serial killer and we might be bringing in another one. I think we got rid of him. I'm not sure!"
You excited for the Bones and Booth wedding, Bones fans?
