The X-Files Meets Bones - IGN .com talked to Bones star Eric Millegan about David Duchovny directing this week's episode and how Chewbacca is involved.

December 12, 2006 - At the recent Billboard Music Awards, I caught up with Eric Millegan from Bones, who told me he was excited about the December 13th episode, which he described as "very big" for his character, Zack Addy. "I'd heard about them doing it for awhile," the actor said, regarding the episode's genesis and the focus on Zack. "They were like, 'Episode 11! Episode 11!'"

The episode also includes the participation of two notable people: Kathy Reichs and David Duchovny. Reichs is the real life forensic anthropologist who wrote the books upon which the series is based, and who is the real life inspiration for the lead character, Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel). Reichs is making a guest appearance on the episode, titled "Judas on a Pole."

DD v Bones Millegan revealed Reichs would be playing a familiar role for her; that of a forensic anthropologist, who Zack has to deal with. "I'm defending my dissertation to her," explained Millegan. "I'm finally trying to finish my doctorate in forensic anthropology, and we find out in this episode whether or not I get my doctorate. And the tricky thing is, if I do get my doctorate, I'm no longer Dr. Brennan's grad student, and I don't have a job at the Jeffersonian anymore. So I can't give too much away other then that, but definitely tune in. It's going to be a nice episode!" As to what it was like working with Reichs, Millegan said, "It was so fun. She had a great time. I think she likes the show and likes hanging out with us."

Duchovny in the meantime is working behind the scenes, directing the episode. Duchovny has previous experience as a director, having helmed several episodes of his hit series The X-Files, in addition to the feature film The House of D. Asked how Duchovny came to direct Bones, Millegan laughed, saying "I don't know! They asked him to do it, and he did."

Millegan said he had a very enjoyable time with Duchovny, remarking that, "He was great. He would challenge me to do some very funny things. He'd be like, 'Try this!' and I'd say, "I don't know…" He'd be like, 'It'll be funny, it'll be funny!'"

Perhaps the most notable inclusion Duchovny made to the episode had to do with a certain famous wookie. "On the set, I'm known for being able to do Chewbacca," explained Millegan before doing an impression of the beloved Star Wars character for my very amused and impressed benefit. "[Duchovny] knew that, so he wanted me to do it at the end of the scene, and I'm like, 'No!'" Millegan added that Duchovny quickly got him past his instinctive uncertainty, and that, "We added the Chewbacca noise into the end of a scene. I don't know if they'll keep it though." Millegan said that overall, Duchovny was, "Really funny, and really challenged me to be funny."
