TVLINE – If that isn’t the face of someone who’s up to no good, we don’t know what is! TVLine has obtained an exclusive first look at Emily Deschanel in action in the upcoming Season 4 of TNT’s criminally addictive Animal Kingdom — and judging from the way that the Bones vet is casting a backward glance in the image, it’s safe to say that her new character is leaving as much trouble behind her as she stands to make going forward.
Per the network, Deschanel’s Angela, who’s only recently been released from prison, is the former BFF of Pope’s late sister, J’s mother Julia. When the drama returns this summer, the recovering junkie shows up at the Cody clan’s sweet digs and tries to “snake her way back into the family’s good graces.”
Which, as you can imagine, will be easier said than done. Though Angela is described as “a survivor — scrappy [and] manipulative,” the addict’s past as Julia’s drug buddy makes her persona non grata as far as J’s concerned. Smurf’s antennae will also go up upon Angela’s arrival. (Then again, the Codys’ matriarch is suspicious of most people.) So Angela may make her top priority getting in good — and getting in bed — with Julia’s off-kilter twin, Pope.
The Animal Kingdom arc represents Deschanel’s first TV gig since Bones wrapped its decade-long run two years ago.

LIVEKINDLY – Vegan actor and mom Emily Deschanel, the titular star of the Fox drama “Bones,” has shared her parenting tips and why she values compassion toward animals and the environment above all.
She revealed her tips on the new vegan podcast Switch4Good, co-hosted by Olympic silver medalist cyclist Dotsie Bausch and “Baywatch” star and health coach, Alexandra Paul.
Deschanel, a vegan of 25 years, first became vegetarian “on the spot” after watching the 1991 documentary “Diet for a New America,” based on the 1987 bestselling book by John Robbins, the heir to the Baskin-Robbins fortune. After the screening, she was further convinced by a debate between doctors on whether meat and dairy are healthy. About two years later, at age 17, she adopted a plant-based diet.
“It convinced me about – you know, it’s all about the impact on the environment that meat and dairy has and that factory farming has on the environment, and what it does to the animals, how horribly they’re kept,” she said on the podcast. “How horribly they’re treated and killed for us to eat, and then it’s about how it affects our health. It was always the triple-whammy that really affected me.”
