Bones Season 7 gets a Hack
David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel will be matching wits with Andrew Leeds as a killer computer hacker in the upcoming season of Fox’s Bones, and not even house arrest can slow this guy down. Leeds, who has appeared in Dirt and Nip/Tuck, will be squaring off against Booth and Brennan as Christopher Pellant, “this season’s big villain.” Pellant is a “hacktivist” that got into a little bit of trouble when he hacked into the websites of the Senate and the Defense Department. Now banned from computers and under house arrest, you’d think the cyber-warrior was effectively neutered, but Pellant apparently isn’t your average computer geek because it looks like he’s behind a murder spree, and the ankle monitor he’s wearing doesn’t slow him down at all.The ‘hacktivist’ sounds like a great bad guy to keep around »

Andrew Leeds (Nip/Tuck, Dirt) has been cast as Christopher Pellant who is set to cause some major problems for the expecting Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz).
TV Guide got some exclusive details on this new villain who whilst under house arrest manages to go on a killing spree despite an ankle monitor. It has previously been mentioned by executive producer Stephen Nathan that Pellant can be compared to previous Bones foes such as The Gravedigger and Gormogon, and that he will be sticking around for some time.
We now know that Pellant is a "hactivist" who ends up under house arrest after he has hacked into the Senate and Defense Departments websites and manages to shut down military communications. This puts »

Season 6 of "Bones" found the series sending one serial baddie to prison and another to the great beyond.
So while the show might be down a sniper and a sociopathic gravedigger, it's about to get... a hacker?
First reported by TVLine, "Bones" has added actor Andrew Leeds ("Desperate Housewives," "Dirt") as recurring villain Christopher Pellant. A "tech-savvy" "hacktivist," Pellant hardly seems like typical foil for Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel).
We'll first meet him in episode 6 of the new season -- its Winter finale before going on hiatus to make way for midseason pseudo-spin-off "The Finder" -- when he begins a mysterious murdering spree from the comfort of his own home. (A previous Department of Defense hack left him under house arrest, as you might imagine.)
How much more you'll see of Pellant in the second half of the season seems to depend on how many episodes "Bones »
Andrew Leeds has joined Bones as the big, bad villain of the coming seventh season.
Leeds' character, Christopher Pellant, is a tech-savvy hacker/activist who is, when we meet him, under house arrest for crashing the Department of Defense’s communications network, putting military lives at risk.
Despite the hindrance of an ankle monitor and lack of Internet access, Pellant goes on a killing spree that Special Agent Seeley Booth must put a stop to. He's definitely no Broadsky. This is a 2011-12 enemy.
Bones returns November 3, with Leeds scheduled to appear in the show's midseason finale in December. His story arc will continue next spring, with the bulk of the six fall episodes dedicated to Brennan's pregnancy. »
