[ Life]

McKayla Maroney exercised her acting muscles and landed a guest spot on Bones. The episode aired Friday night–and the gymnast proved she has some pretty amazing acting skills. A long time fan of the show, Maroney jumped at the chance to attend the casting call that resulted in the part.

“I had strep throat when I went in. I didn’t know my lines or anything!” she says. “I kind of just winged it. I honestly had no idea how I did. … So when I got the part, I was so excited.”

The cast and crew of the hit Fox series were impressed with how quickly Maroney caught the acting bug. After all–she’s not an actor. McKayla Maroney did perform some gymnastic feats during Friday night’s episode, but none of the signature high-flying vaults that earned her Olympic gold.

“I probably would’ve done some vaulting, but they didn’t have any set up for the level that I am. They were all for younger gymnasts,” she says. “It’s more acting-based. I had to do gymnastics, like I did a round of handspring layouts, which I do every day in the gym and isn’t hard for me to do. But it was very hard for me to be ready to do gymnastics and then be ready to act. I would do a tumbling pass and then have to talk. But that’s how it’s supposed to be, like I’m in the gym and it’s OK if I’m out of breath. It was an amazing experience. I had so much fun. Everyone was so nice.”

Twitter fans eagerly awaited Friday night’s episode of Bones to see McKayla Maroney in her guest role.

McKayla shared an Instagram photo about the show.

Did you catch McKayla Maroney as she made her flying leap from gymnastics to acting on Friday night’s episode of Bones–sharing lines with Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz? Is there a future there for the Olympic gymnast or should she hang on to her day job for a while yet instead?

Top Rated White Papers and Resources
  • Brat

    The world saw how this woman is such a spoiled and selfish little brat. People try to flip the script but the reality is that she is stuck up as hell. People laugh at her overseas. Just another typical American woman.

    • Coach George

      Brat……. I don’t know the young lady……. you may be right. Do you know the young lady? As to calling all Americans typical Brats…… sorry thats a huge reach.

      Now as to youth that are Brats in athletics or anything else that requires a huge level of confidence…….. yep it happens. The more popular the activity the more it happens. Two reasons…….. Confidence is often viewed as bratness, smugness, etc. by those who have low confidence. It is a “self” mechanism. A poor mechanism to use……. but it is one.

      On the other coin….. youth athletics or anything else that requires a huge level of confidence are YOUTH. They wrestle with finding their place in the world just everyone else. That includes finding the appropriate level of Humility. In My Humble Educated Opinion this struggle is way more difficult for elite athlete/performers because success can be classified as an Addictive Substance that conflicts with reaching a stable level of “maturity”. Maturity includes having an appropriate level of humbleness.

      I actually feel sorry for these folks. They miss out on much joy they could be getting by not yet having reached their full “self” maturity. Like Justin Beiber, and other performers and/or athletes. While I want to slap them aside the head…… at the same time my oh my the depth of their success they may never understand/appreciate in a heart felt way. Such a sad loss

They wrestle with finding their place in the world just like everyone else. That includes finding the appropriate level of Humility. In My Humble “Educated” Opinion this struggle is way more difficult for elite athlete/performers for many reasons. For example “success” could be considered as a negative Addictive Substance. Like any addiction it can conflicts with reaching a stable level of “maturity”. Maturity includes having an appropriate level of humbleness. This addiction is a trade off one usually is an unknown trade off you get when being highly (publicly) successful

    @Brat…are you a citizen of one of America’s ungrateful allies who leech off of the toil of hard working American men and women, and then bite the hand that feeds you? If so you should be boiled in oil you loser ingrate. Maroney is a nice girl, and you have shown your ignorance by claiming otherwise with your slander.

    • @Butch

      Boy Butch …. you drank the Kool-Aid didn’t you. Brainwashed huh.

      Boiled in oil? Who says that in the year 2013? Leech off the work of hardworking Americans? Your cheap goods over in the US are made from sweatshop labor from around the world! Your country rapes the world for natural resources. Why do you think you fight all your wars? Freedom? Please. Your country isn’t even free. The rest of the world knows this. Are you this naive and dense?

      The world would get a long just fine without the US. I promise you this. In fact, if you would travel outside your country — heck even your county — you would see this fact. Most countries are now making plans to do it alone without the US anyway. Your country Butch is being phased out. You will be third world within 50 years.

    • @Butch

      Ah…. yeah. Boiled in oil. How exactly does the world leech off the hard work of Americans? Your politicians might leech of you … but I assure you the rest of us in the world do not leech off you. In fact, from where I am sitting, I can see a sweatshop that produces goods for your country. Why don’t you come on over and work in it? Believe me, half the world is tired of the US sticking its nose in everyone’s business. Don’t believe the hype you see on your news shows at night. You are not getting an accurate picture of anything.

      • Moose

        Don’t worry Butch, I am sure you will enjoy the Chinese much better when they take over

        • USA.USA.USA.USA

          still the greatest county on this planet!!

          • @USA

            Yeah… says the guy who has never left his own county let alone his own country.

    • A Brit

      Go out and type “how the world sees america” in your Google browser. Start reading. Butch you have let your propaganda get to you.

  • Dave

    I thought that McKayla did a fantastic job in her part on Bones. It was good to see her having fun in a different venue other than Olympic competition. I look forward to seeing McKayla in many other acting part in the future.

  • Wallywoo

    Kaley COCOA!! Isn’t that something you POUR INTO A MUG AND DRINK? Huh?? Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Wow

    Brat is right … this woman is stuck up. The world did see it. People forget so easily that twitter exploded when Maroney was being such a jerk at the medal ceremony. I mean you could see it all over her face. In fact, what did people call her …. oh yeah …. the mean girl. She is stuck up. And Brat is also very right. How Americans view themselves and how the rest of the world does is two totally different things. Most of the world laughs when they hear Americans talk about how terrorists did 9/11. The evidences is plain as day that the government did it, but no, Americans will believe anything. Yeah America, 1400 hundred cars melted seven blocks away from the towers, but a paper passport from one of the terrorists miraculously survived and was found intact. Please. Lets just call that the “magic passport” after all there is already a “magic bullet”.

    • @Wow

      Everyone in America knows 9/11 is a joke too. I mean come on …. 7 of the terrorists that they said did 9/11 are still alive. One of my good friends is a NYFD member. He says that everyone knows bombs went off in the bottom of those buildings. They are just afraid to go to the press because frankly, people have tried and the press won’t cover their stories. It is like anything or anyone that comes forward is literally ignored. Reporters will listen but when they bring the stories to the editors —- nothing happens. That is where the media is controlled — with the editors.

    • @Wow

      Many Americans don’t believe the official story. The latest polls show that. But for the most part you are right. A friend of mine is a 9/11 victim family member. He doesn’t believe the official story at all. If they don’t believe the official story, I have no clue why the American public does.

      I work for an airplane engine/turbine manufacturer (GE Power Systems). There is no way those engines should have disintegrated at the Pentagon. There should have been holes where those engines hit. The engine doesn’t even match the size found on the site. People don’t realize what those things are made out of. They are indestructible. A missile hit the Pentagon. Not a plane.

      It would be easy to prove one way or the other. Just release a full security tape. They have 85 tapes confiscated.

      It really is that simple. Release a full tape. Heck, release tapes of the plane approaching the Pentagon. Cameras were everywhere. Heck, release traffic cam tapes. Release something except 5 blurry bogus still shots where you can’t see a damn thing.

      But again, I get back to the engines. We make those. Those things are indestructible.

    • @Wow

      The evidence is overwhelming that we are not being told the truth about 9/11. We spent more money investigating Monica’s blowjob than we did on investigating 9/11. That is very telling.

      Sucking a dick is more important than 3,000 deaths in the greatest attack on American soil ever.

      Sucking a dick. Really?

      By the way, we spent 30 million investigating Monica and 15 on 9/11. Now why is that?

  • Warren Lynch

    Yes, she acted like a spoiled child at the Olympics; however, making judgement calls that ALL Americans are like her, we are not. Should I judge the rest of the world ignorant, opinionated with a propensity for being economically, psychologically, physiologically, politically, ideologically stunted, or mediocre at-best, as a nation? Why the hate? All because we are not perfect like the rest of the world. Every country on this planet has shameful pasts (the present, too), things they wish to forget, in-fact, many times those periods of shame lasted longer than America has been in existence. Whether-it-be man-made, or nature we are there to help in any way we can, granted sometimes we don’t help the situation, and some we have actually created. Well, let’s pull up your countries’ perfect track record, ok?! The world needs to step back, take good look in the mirror and fix themselves before casting judgements, accusations and insults. Too many people/nations of the world think “their s@!t don’t stink” believe me it does, ours too, so get off your “high-horses” fix your own home before giving criticism and advice to someone else. Food 4 Thought. Health, happiness and much success to all. Hooah!
