Television’s number #1 drama just added a new member to its family.
CBS has announced that Wilmer Valderrama has joined the cast of NCIS as a series regular.
Valderrama will play a once grounded NCIS field agent who accepted a deep cover assignment years ago and never resurfaced.
Many agents don’t know he’s still on the job or that he’s even alive. Now, he’s back and his dedication to job and country has left him an unpredictable, charismatic loose cannon.
“Wilmer Valderrama will be able to flex his dramatic, physical and comedic talents in this classic ‘NCIS’ role,” said Executive Producer Gary Glasberg. “Fans are going to see him like they’ve never seen him before. This is going to be fun. We’re thrilled he’s coming aboard.”
NCIS stars Mark Harmon, Pauley Perrette, Sean Murray, Rocky Carroll, Emily Wickersham, Brian Dietzen and David McCallum.
