Bones star, David Boreanaz, sat down with the newest issue of DRAFT Magazine for the manliest of interviews which not only covered the topic of his hit Fox show, Bones, but also the finer things in life; beer and football.
First of all let me just say, why didn’t anyone tell me there was a magazine fully dedicated to beer, and where can I sign up?
Here are some highlights of the interview;
* What was your beer of choice when you attended Ithaca College?
BOREANAZ: “Anything cold. You don’t really think about anything much more than getting a tap for the keg. I don’t think we were thinking brand names. You’re in college, so it doesn’t really matter.”
* What are your favorite two football teams?
BOREANAZ: “I love the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I used to be a ball boy for the Steelers and had the opportunity to train with Jack Lambert. I remember when I went to their Pennsylvania camp; that was my first introduction into Iron City beer, which is great stuff.”
* The first two episodes of ‘Bones’ took place in London. So what beer did you enjoy during your two-plus weeks there?
BOREANAZ: “I like Stella, that’s a good blonde beer. I always tend towards the blonde beers more than the deep, rich ales that they have over there. I don’t go that way. Anything that’s cold and blonde works for me.”
* You’re directing a November episode of ‘Bones.’ Why are you switching hats right now?
BOREANAZ: “I just enjoy being both in front of and behind the camera, producing, directing. I love the whole process of it. I’m an avid photographer as a hobby; I have a lot of old cameras and like to collect certain types of cameras. It’s something I enjoy and obviously, now with a child, I’m always taking pictures. I’ve directed before so it’s just something fun and challenging. I don’t think consciously ‘Oh, this is where my career is going.’ I just kind of do it. One would be foolish not to take the opportunity of being fortunate enough to be on a show first of all, and then to be around and learn from that so you can expand yourself.”
