The Finder TV Show Finally Finds Saffron Burrows’ Replacement(s)

Last we heard on the topic of FOX’s “Bones” spin-off show “The Finder”, Saffron Burrows had been mystifyingly fired for being too, well, Saffron Burrows, I guess. Her accent, we hear, was the problem. Which is way odd, because Saffron Burrows has played PLENTY of Americans, and like most British actors, she can switch that accent on and off pretty much at will.

In any case, Burrows is out, and TVLine reports that Mercedes Masohn and Maddie Hasson are in.

Masohn (top left), last seen on “Chuck” and “Quarantine 2″, will play Isabel Zambada, a Deputy U.S. Marshal and love interest to George Stults’ titular Finder, Walter Sherman. 16-year-old Maddie Hasson, meanwhile, will play Willa, a con girl from a family of cons who lends her skills to Walter and his “legal advisor” Leo (Michael Clarke Duncan) to solve cases. Hopefully at least one of them will have some wacky accent to remind us that this show would have been so much cooler (not to mention hotter) with Saffron Burrows around.

“The Finder” will find a time slot on FOX next January. Until then, here’s a Saffron Burrows-included, but not Saffron Burrows-credited trailer for the show.

    Will miss Burrows (I’m partial to British accents on hot women) but this swap could work. And Masohn is a looker herself. The precocious teen con artist could be fun with Duncan’s Leo. I look forward to the show..

    Granted this is an old article but I was just looking around at the new castings since the show is getting closer.

    Burrows played I’m guessing an Australian, not an American in the Bones “backdoor pilot”. The accent was rather painful to the ears and definitely thru off the scenes. Not sure why they couldn’t have kept her and just used an British or American accent.
