NCIS Special Agent Tony DiNozzo (played by Michael Weatherly) appears to be nothing but smiles when a woman from his past resurfaces — and TVLine has the pictures to prove it.
In the CBS drama’s Oct. 28 episode, titled “Parental Guidance Suggested,” 24 alum Marisol Nichols guest-stars as Zoë Keates, an ATF Special Agent who years ago worked with DiNozzo at the Philly PD (prior to Tony’s stint in Baltimore). The two cross paths anew when NCIS and ATF find themselves tracking the same terrorist.
How do you interpret Tony’s reaction below? Is it bona fide “Happy to see you,” or maybe less so? (Then again… how can it not be?? Because cheekbones.)
The same episode also guest-stars Josh Randall (Ed) and Bronson Pinchot (Perfect Strangers). NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c.
This Thanksgiving on CBS’ NCIS, the introduction of Special Agent Ellie Bishop’s husband will be on the menu.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Battlestar Galactica alum Jamie Bamber will appear in a November episode of TV’s most watched drama as the oft-mentioned, yet-to-be-seen NSA attorney Jake Malloy.
“We’ve waited a long time to meet Bishop’s husband, and we’ve found him in Jamie Bamber,” says NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg. “Jamie is a charming, talented actor, and we’re thrilled to have him on-board for this Thanksgiving episode and some exciting surprises to come.”
In addition to his run as BSG’s Apollo, Bamber’s TV credits include Law & Order: UK, Monday Mornings and Rizzoli & Isles (where he’s currently in the midst of a two-episode arc). He also just this week booked a recurring role on the midseason CW drama The Messsengers.
NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c.
Agent Tony DiNozzo will get a very pretty blast from his Philadelphia past, when 24 alum Marisol Nichols guest-stars on CBS’ NCIS.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Nichols will appear in an upcoming episode, titled “Parental Guidance Suggested,” as Zoë Keates, an ATF Special Agent who years ago worked with DiNozzo when both were with the Philly PD.
The pair’s paths cross anew when NCIS and ATF find themselves both tracking the same terrorist.
In addition to her Season 6 run as 24‘s Nadia Yassir, Nichols’ TV credits include GCB, The Gates and, yes, an Oct. 2010 episode of NCIS: Los Angeles (as Callen’s ex-CIA partner).
TV’s most watched drama, NCIS opens Season 12 this Tuesday at 8/7c.

It’s been a while since we checked in with SecNav Sarah Porter, no? Fear not: Leslie Hope will reprise her role in an episode slated to air in mid-October (the same episode that will introduce Stephanie Jacobsen as DiNozzo’s new love interest). The episode, appropriately titled “Choke Hold,” finds the team investigating the bizarre strangling of a Navy research scientist. Hmm, sounds like the kind of case SecNav can really get her hands around!
This should make the Tiva fans go nuts.
Stephanie Jacobsen has landed a potentially recurring role on NCIS, EW has learned exclusively.
The Revenge and Melrose Place alum will play FBI Special Agent Leia Pendergast, who is partnered with Agent DiNozzo for a case involving an international terrorist threat targeting Navy researchers.
Could she be a new love interest for DiNozzo? The description of her character seems to imply as much: “Armed but feminine, sexy and single, cool and confident. A former U.S. Marshal-turned FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force leader, she is flirtatious and adventurous with a sense of humor. Leia is a straight shooter, brash when she needs to be. She isn’t afraid to knock down doors or egos.”
NCIS returns Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Jacobsen will first appear in an episode slated for October.
CBS’ NCIS has enlisted TV vet Kelli Williams to guest-star in an upcoming episode that will explore the issue of sexual assault in the Navy.
“It’s a really important episode for us,” showrunner Gary Glasberg tells TVLine of the installment, which has already been filmed and is now being edited. “I’m very pleased with how it’s turning out.”
Williams — whose previous TV credits include Army Wives, Lie to Me, Men in Trees and The Practice — plays an NCIS agent in the episode, which will be the second one to follow the imminent two-week NCIS: New Orleans planted spin-off (premiering this Tuesday at 8/7c).
She’ll continue her relationship with the network and play Scott Bakula’s wife in the planted spinoff.
The planted spinoff has cast Person of Interest’s Paige Turco as Linda, the wife to Bakula’s lead Agent Pride, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Set to air in the spring, the two-part planted pilot centers on the NCIS New Orleans office, which handles cases from Pensacola, Fla., through Mississippi and Louisiana to the Texas panhandle. New Orleans, with its rich culture of music, fun and debauchery is a magnet for military personnel on leave — and with fun, comes trouble.
Turco, who has a series regular role on The CW’s midseason drama The 100, will film the NCIS guest role in second position and potentially recur should the spinoff move forward.
She joins a cast that also includes Zoe McLellan, CCH Pounder and Lucas Black. Turco continues to recur as Zoe on CBS’ Person of Interest. She’s repped by Gersh and One Entertainment.
NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg and star Mark Harmon will executive produce the spinoff, which will air in the spring.
