Fox is now confirming that which was first and exclusively reported by... the actor himself: Brendan Fehr, who cut his teeth on Roswell and very recently costarred on the ABC Family series Samurai Girl, is going to guest on Bones as Booth's younger brother, Jared.

Fehr is booked for two episodes, the first of which will air Nov. 2, just as sweeps month kicks off. No coincidence there, seeing as the buzz is that Jar might close the very deal Bones fans have wanted his big bro to better apply himself to all these years. OK, that phrasing came out a bit obtuse. He will pitch woo with Brennan.

"It's going to be a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to it," Fehr wrote on his official web site. "The character is great and well-written.... He's got a lot of stuff to work with on the screen and with a great back story." - Matt Mitovich
