Michael Clarke Duncan Cast in Potential BONES Spinoff

Michael Clarke Duncan

The potential BONES spinoff has its first cast member. Deadline reports that Michael Clarke Duncan (‘The Green Mile’) has signed on to co-star in the project.

Based on Richard Greener’s “The Locator” books, the Bones spinoff focuses on title character Walter Sherman, a former military policeman who can find anything. Duncan will portray Leo, Walter’s partner, who is described as “tough, rawhide cowboy.”

Leo and the rest of the as-yet uncast spinoff characters will be introduced in episode 19 of Bones‘ current season.

Duncan, who was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for ‘The Green Mile,’ has guest starred in shows like Chuck and Two and a Half Men, but this will be his first series role if the pilot is picked up.

What do you think about this idea for a spinoff and casting choice?
