Bones producer Stephen Nathan has admitted that casting the lead role in the show's new spinoff has been "difficult".

An upcoming episode will see Booth and Brennan travel to Key West, Florida, where they will encounter Walter Sherman, a military policeman known as 'The Locator'.

Nathan told Entertainment Weekly: "There have been a lot of terrific actors who have come in [for Walter, but] with a character like this, you just have to find the perfect fit. So even if someone is a brilliant actor... it might not quite work."

He added that finding the right actor to portray the "unique" character of Walter was a complicated process.

"You want to find people you want to see every single week [play] one... character," he explained. "And that is a rare, rare quality to find."

The Green Mile star Michael Clarke Duncan was recently cast as Sherman's partner Leo.

The Bones episode introducing Sherman is expected to begin filming next month.
