Spotted: Leigh J. McCloskey

Sporting Martin Sheen-like hair, all swept back and dapper, Leigh J. McCloskey wasn't hard to spot in this week's episode of Fox's "Bones." Our BRBTV double-shot -- the former Mitch Cooper of "Dallas" as well as Zach Kelton and Ethan Asher of "Santa Barbara" (guess that makes him a triple-shot!) -- was quite smashing as the body in this episode, the set of "bones," if you will.

Leigh played Lee -- Coleman, that is -- the host of a "Mythbusters"-type TV show. Coleman was the one who killed the myth, until the myth apparently killed him! When his body shows up, it appears to have fallen victim to a mythical creature of the woods, the Chupacabra, which he was there to disprove.

The episode features McCloskey in TV clip flashbacks and shifty camera playbacks, so delightful as he stands next to a goat as bait ("Chupacabra" means goat-sucker, didn't you know?) in the dark, creepy woods, looking up at his camera set in a tree and complaining that the creature didn't show. He's obnoxious and arrogant -- so much more Zach than Ethan, "SB" fans will note!

Watch the episode, "The Truth in the Myth," for yourself at the IMDb.
