Emily Deschanel temporarily hanging up “Bones” for “Perfect Family”


Emily Deschanel has figured out what she’s going to do while her hit television show, “Bones,” is on hiatus for the summer. The actress, like so many of her small-screen peers, will attempt to transition to the big screen for an independent film project “The Perfect Family,” directed by Anne Renton.

Renton previously directed the comedic short “Love Is Love” with Jenni Baird (“The 4400”) and Jane Lynch (“Glee”). Deschanel, meanwhile, has enjoyed roles in “The Alamo” and “Spider-Man 2” but has left the silver screen exploits to her younger sister, Zooey.

In the film, Deschanel will play a successful gay lawyer who could potentially embarrass her uptight, Catholic mother as she competes for an award to find the perfect family. According to Variety, Kathleen Turner has been cast as Deschanel’s mom, while Jason Ritter will play Deschanel’s deadbeat brother.
