Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino won't be appearing as a deceased guido in the "Jersey Shore" episode of "Bones" after all.
As first reported by EW and confirmed to Zap2it by FOX, negotiations with the MTV star proved too difficult so the series is going another route. FOX tells us that an actor for the role has yet to be cast.
And we're pretty thrilled. A spoof of the over-gelled East Coasters is a great idea, but reality star cameos are rarely as good in execution as they are in theory.
"The episode will still be our little tribute to 'Jersey Shore'" executive producer Stephen Nathan tells EW, "and it will do what many people in America would like to see themselves -- which is one of those people dead."
We're sure he's joking, but there's always a little truth in humor, eh?
