TVGuide: A Nightmare on Bones Street

Talk about dream casting. Oh rather "Nightmare" casting!

Fox's Bones has lured Freddy Krueger himself out of the shadows to come terrorize Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) in a slasher-themed episode set to air this spring. Actor Robert Englund, 62, who has slipped on his razor blade hands, brown fedora and red/black striped sweater a dozen times since the original 1984 "Nightmare on Elm Street" film, will play a creepy custodian at Brennan's old high school.

The story finds jaded Brennan planning to skip her high school reunion, until a murder sends her and Booth to the scene to investigate. Emily tells me she has supplied the show with an actual photo of her taken during her high school years. "They wanted one of me not smiling, so they're going to doctor it a bit," says the actress.

That should be fun to see!
