'Bones' casting: So you think you can... get away with murder?

"Bones" really loves keeping things in the FOX family. There's TJ Thyne's open love for his network, and then there's the series' history of working other FOX shows and stars into its murder investigations.

Next up? "So You Think You Can Dance."

FOX confirms to Zap2it that "SYTYCD" Season 4 runner-up and Season 7 all-star Stephen "tWitch" Boss is heading to "Bones" for a November sweeps episode.

As first reported by EW, this won't be a direct homage to the reality TV show -- like that "American Idol" episode of "Bones" we won't mention. Instead, the case du jour will focus on a felled street performer. TWitch comes into play as a street dancer and suspect.

This is not the dancer's first foray into acting. TWitch appeared in this summer's "Step Up 3D," and he has a role in the upcoming "Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming." "Bones" just might be his gateway to something besides dance movie sequels.
