Robert Englund will be spooking students in the April 15 slasher-themed episode of Bones, when the former Freddy Krueger of the classic “Nightmare on Elm Street” films pops as Ray Buxley, a creepy janitor at Brennan’s old high school with a fondness for taxidermy.
“He befriended Bones back when she was a wallflower in high school, and is still carrying a torch for her,” teases Robert. So when Brennan (Emily Deschanel) shows up at her reunion with Booth (David Boreanaz) posing as her husband, Ray naturally objects. “He doesn’t like Booth at all!”
It was a different vibe off camera between the actors, says Robert. “David and I have friends in common from our sci-fi/horror worlds when he was on Buffy and Angel. I made a joke on set that I think he has even more action figures of himself than I do.”
