David Boreanaz was Jay Leno’s second guest, and in addition to going through all the jobs he got fired from pre-stardom (selling gourmet food door-to-door, gym towel boy) and how it took 42 takes to film his father’s cameo in Bones‘ 100th episode Thursday (why doesn’t his dad pick up what he Xeroxed?), he shared the story about the first time he ran into Alley. He used to put on a suit and sneak on to studios when he first got to L.A. in 1991. He breezed by security on the Paramount lot and ended up on the set of Cheers. “They were rehearsing, and I just blended in, in the background,” he says.
