UPDATE: Here is the official press release from FOX about John Francis Daley:
John Francis Daley has joined the cast of the FOX series Bones as a series regular. Daley plays "Dr. Lance Sweets," a young FBI-appointed therapist with whom Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) are ordered to meet in order to determine if their crime-solving partnership can continue.
Of Daley's addition to the cast, Bones creator and executive producer Hart Hanson said: "He is terrifically funny and very appealing while projecting intelligence, which injects his scenes with all our actors, especially Emily and David, with a kind of rollicking energy that is a real bonus ... and he fits in perfectly with the cattywonkers tone of our show."
