"Bones" Season 10 has made its first major casting decision. John Boyd ("24") will play Booth's new protege, James Aubrey.

According to TVLine, Boyd's role of a junior FBI agent will be recurring. The character is described as "charming and unapologetically confident" -- Booth (David Boreanaz) will need to tame some of that confidence when it morphs into excessive ambition.

Aubrey will presumably join the show at some point after Booth clears his name for multiple murders.

In addition to playing CTU analyst Arlo Glass on "24," Boyd has also appeared on "Touch" and "The Carrie Diaries."

"Bones" Season 10 will premiere Thursday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
