Newly hitched Bones and Booth are going to find themselves in the company of a a former (fictional) White House staffer and an Olympic gold medalist in an upcoming episode of Bones.

EW has learned exclusively that Richard Schiff and McKayla Maroney have been tapped for guest spots. Schiff (West Wing) will play Leon Watters, described as the “Dr. Brennan of theoretical physics.” Per the storyline, Brennan sees shades of herself in the detached Watters, whose daughter’s death will be the investigation at the center of the episode, and she is quick to recognize that Watters is burying himself in his work to cope with his loss.

Meanwhile, Maroney, who earned two medals during the 2012 summer Olympics, will play Ellie, a friend and rival of Watters’s daughter, Amanda.

The episode does not yet have an air date. But the next new episode of Bones airs Monday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX. (It’s the honeymoon ep!)
