Bones’ newest squintern addition, Finn Abernathy~Luke Kleintank, is set to premiere in this Thursday’s newest installment, “The Hot Dog In The Competition”. Kleiintank spoils to EW about the new dynamic between his character Finn and the rest of the Jeffersonian gang.
“He’s good ole boy from the hills,” says actor Luke Kleintank, “The best way I can describe it[dynamic] is that it’s like the relationship I have with my brothers,” he says. “They [bicker], but kind of fall in love with each other at the end … I think he and Hodgins are going to be a dynamic duo, the two brothers that are just doing stupid stuff together.”And while it’s true that Finn’s “deep and tortured” past (which includes a criminal record!) plays some part in the team’s hesitation toward him, Kleintank says it’s what helps him form a deep connection with Brennan. “Brennan has a past of abuse and they can relate on that level,” he says. “As far as depth goes, I think him and Brennan might find something deep and a good connection. They’ve already started to. I think she’s going to open up to him and be a mentor — or a motherly figure in some ways.”
