Bones’ Spinoff THE FINDER Loses Law & Order: CI’s Saffron Burrows

Saffron Burrows The Finder
If you were looking forward to seeing Saffron Burrows (Law & Order: CI, Boston Legal) in the Bones’ spinoff THE FINDER this Fall, you will be sad to learn that her role is being recast.

According to Inside TV, it seems that FOX has decided to “re-conceive the role.” Not sure to what though.

But the biggest question is how they will explain her being gone since the pilot already aired as part of Bones this past season. The episode in question was episode 19 titled “The Finder” (of course) which aired on April 21 and featured Burrows as Ike Latulippe, Walter Sherman’s (Geoff Stults) sidekick.

Personally, I don’t mind them recasting the part, since I wasn’t really attached to Saffron Burrows’ character. That said, I hope that they find a way to explain her absence and introduce a new character instead of actually recasting her character, because that would just be confusing (I hate when shows do that).

Thoughts? Did you enjoy The Finder pilot? Did you enjoy Saffron Burrows in the Bones episode?
