Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A prolific character actor on television and the occasional feature, T.J. Thyne found his widest audience as the offbeat Dr. Jack Hodgins on the popular mystery series "Bones" (Fox, 2005- ). Born Thomas Joseph Thyne on March 7, 1975 in Boston, Massachusetts, T.J. Thyne was one of five children. He fell in love with acting at the age of six and pursued it throughout high school and college at the USC School of Dramatic Arts. By the time he graduated with a BFA in acting in 1997, Thyne had landed appearances in numerous television commercials and Off-Broadway with the Mint Theater Company in New York. Supporting roles on television led to character turns in features, most notably as an unsavory lawyer in "Erin Brockovich" (2000) and a teenaged Whovian in Ron Howard's live-action take on "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (2000). In 2005, Thyne was cast as Dr. Jack Hodgins on the procedural mystery/drama "Bones." An entomologist with a penchant for wisecracks and conspiracy theories, Hodgins was a key team member for forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennnan (Emily Deschanel) throughout the series' entire run.

An entomologist with a penchant for wisecracks and conspiracy theories, Hodgins was a key team member for forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennnan (Emily Deschanel) throughout the series' entire run. He also provided much-needed comic relief from the show's darker elements, as well as a secondary romantic storyline through his relationship with forensic anthropologist Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin). While working on "Bones," Thyne also oversaw Theater Junkies Productions, a theater group and acting school that he founded in 2001. The company branched into film production in the late 2000s, releasing several short films on the festival circuit, including "Validation" (2007), which featured Thyne as its lead. The short drew over 5 million hits on YouTube, and spurred him to launch a series of experimental short films under the umbrella title of "Moment" in 2011.
