The rotating list of interns on Bones hasn’t changed much in Season 8. An earlier episode this season featured the squints working together to identify some cold case remains and crack one mysterious mystery. Now that the regular interns are all playing nicely together, Fox’s oddball procedural is adding a new intern into the mix.

Cloverfield’s Brian Klugman has joined the cast of Bones, presumably as a recurring character, since Bones in recent seasons has nearly always enlisted a rotating cast of interns to help with the case each week. There’s no word on whether or not Klugman is joining the cast at the expense of another intern, and with boss Cam’s and intern Arastoo’s romance, it’s likely that intern might find himself in a sticky situation. Either way, TV Line is reporting that the Jeffersonian’s newest employee will be Oliver Wells. Wells will be bursting with confidence, and with good reason—the man is an intellectual who has accrued multiple degrees.

Honestly, it would have been nice to see another chick intern added to the cast, but I guess beggars can’t be choosers. It’s just weird that, at least since Daisy left the office and broke up with Sweets, there haven’t been any females to pitch in as interns. Bones is usually pretty good at appealing to male and female viewers by capably representing both demographics, but in the squints department, the show falls a little short. Maybe the hit program will land another girl in a season or two.
