Bones: Meet the Jeffersonian’s New Squintern!

There will be a new face at the Jeffersonian Institute on Bones this season.

No Ordinary Family and Gossip Girl star Luke Kleintank has been cast in the potentially recurring role of young genius Finn Abernathy, TVGuide.com has learned. Described as brilliant, sweet and a bit rough around the edges, Finn earned his college degree at 16. However, his braininess is balanced with redneck charm. (Think Doogie Howser with Larry the Cable Guy’s accent.)

As we first reported, Cam (Tamara Taylor) happily welcomes Finn and his smarts to the Jeffersonian, but Caroline (Patricia Belcher) is concerned about Finn’s checkered past and what that means for the safety of the rest of the Jeffersonian’s staff. Let’s just say some of Finn’s fancy book-lernin’ was achieved inside a juvenile detention center. We wonder which side of the argument mom-to-be Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel) will come down on.

Finn fills the void left by former squintern Vincent Nigel-Murray (Ryan Cartwright), who was tragically killed by sniper Jacob Broadsky (Arnold Vosloo) in Season 6’s penultimate episode.
