“TJ Thyne, best known for playing Dr. Jack Hodgins on Bones, is enjoying his first fall break in six years… For Thyne, that meant time to promote his starring role in the indie feature Shuffle, which recently had simultaneous premieres at the Hollywood and Heartland film festivals… As for Bones, Thyne says its business as usual for Jack Hodgins this season, aside from the new focus on fatherhood.”
Jim Halterman checks in with TJ Thyne who discusses his new baby boy, on Bones Season 7, and how that changes the relationship between Jack and Angela. What are his thoughts on the change in Booth and Brennan’s relationship? Will Jack Hodgins appear on The Finder? And finally, he discusses his role in the short film Shuffle.
Shuffle is the tale of a man who begins experiencing his life out of order; every day he wakes up at a different age, on a different day of his life, never knowing where or when he’s going to be once he falls asleep. He’s terrified and wants it to stop – until he notices a pattern in his experience, and works to uncover why this is happening to him – and what or who is behind it.
Part Twilight Zone-style mystery, part Frank Capra fantasy, Shuffle stars TJ Thyne, star of the hit TV show Bones, in his first turn as a leading man in a feature film. The film also features TJ Thyne’s “Bones” co-stars Tamara Taylor and Patricia Belcher, acclaimed actress Michelle Krusiec and the film’s old age prosthetic make-up is by Barney Burman, winner of the 2010 Academy Award® for Best Make-up for Star Trek. The film was written, directed and scored by Kurt Kuenne, filmmaker of the acclaimed documentary Dear Zachary: a letter to a son about his father and the hit short film Validation, also starring TJ Thyne.
Shuffle is presently playing film festivals around the United States and will be commercially available by spring/summer 2012.
