FBI AGENT SEELEY BOOTHAS SEEN IN:
Seeley Joseph Booth is a fictional character in the US television series 'Bones' (2005–present), portrayed by David Boreanaz. Agent Booth is a co-protagonist of the series with his girlfriend Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel), whom he affectionately refers to as "Bones".
Seeley Booth is a former sniper in the United States Army's 101st Airborne Division, 75th Ranger Regiment, and Special Forces. He is also an expert knife thrower. Before leaving the Army, Booth held the rank of master sergeant. He served in the Gulf War, Somalia and Kosovo. While in the military he earned a Bronze Star, National Defense Service Medal and the Army Good Conduct Medal. For a time, he held the record for the longest shot ("Well over a kilometer") made in combat.
Acting as a liaison between the FBI and the Jeffersonian Institute, Booth frequently consults with his professional partner Dr. Brennan and her team, whom he refers to as "squints" or "squint squad". Booth's approach to solving crimes is different from that of Brennan and her team; he prefers a more human, interpersonal and intuitive set of methods. While Booth values the information uncovered by Brennan, he often finds their methods convoluted and restrictive. Initially, Booth's presence is met by hostility from some of the team members, especially Jack Hodgins, but these differences are put aside and Booth is accepted as a member of the group.
Created by Hart Hanson, ['Bones'] is very loosely based on the life and writings of novelist and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, who also produces the show. Its title character, Temperance Brennan, is named after the protagonist of Reichs' crime novel series.
