David Boreanaz's best TV role: Angel or Seeley Booth?
The cast reunited for the 20th anniversary of "Buffy" on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. "Buffy" premiered on March 10, 1997 and ended on May 20, 2003. Boreanaz switched to his own series "Angel" in the fall of 1999. "Angel" lasted for five seasons until 2004.
Boreanaz went from "Angel" to "Bones" shortly thereafter. The crime drama premiered in September 2005, and just wrapped on March 28. "Bones" was nominated for 40 awards during its run.
Boreanaz is an iconic TV actor, but which role is his absolute best?
Fans love Angel and Buffy's classic vampire romance, but they really took to Boreanaz's character after Angel stepped out on his own to aid others. Here's the synopsis of "Angel," perIMDB:
The vampire Angel, cursed with a soul, moves to Los Angeles and aids people with supernatural-related problems while questing for his own redemption.
Angel is sweet, kind and sensitive. He's literally a hot vampire with a soul. The role of Angel really jump-started Boreanaz's career, so shouldn't it be crowned as his most iconic?
Boreanaz played another hottie on "Bones," but this time he didn't fall in love with a vampire slayer—instead FBI agent Seeley Booth falls in love with forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan (played by Emily Deschanel). Together, the duo solves crimes by examining human remains.
Forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan, and cocky FBI special agent Seeley Booth build a team to investigate murders - and quite often, there isn't more to examine than rotten flesh or mere bones.
Seeley is cocky, but he's also charming, athletic and warm. He's a jock, but he's the jock who's team you want to be on. Playing Angel might have launched Boreanaz's career, but he became a more serious and nuanced actor after portraying Booth for nearly 12 years.
