The Finder has found his sidekick. Saffron Burrows, who most recently co-starred on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, has been cast as the female lead in the planted Bones spinoff. Based on The Locator books written by Richard Greener, the spinoff centers on Walter Sherman aka “the Locator” (Geoff Stults), a former military policeman who can find anything. Burrows will play his confidante/sidekick, a bar owner who is also a helicopter pilot and can drive a boat. Burrows, repped by ICM and manager Judy Hofflund, rounds out the cast of the spinoff, which co-stars Michael Clarke Duncan.
