There is more news on the NCIS spinoff with movement in the casting department.
Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J. are in negotiations as the two male leads.
Meanwhile actors Louise Lombard (CSI) Peter Cambor (Notes From the Underbelly) and Daniela Ruah have been cast in an episode of NCIS later this year as a springboard for the new series.
Lombard will play Clara, a former major in the military police. Believed to be the female lead on the ensemble drama, Clara is described as an intelligent, sharp investigator who can look after herself. She played Detective Sofia Curtis on CSI for three years.
Cambor will play the quick-witted Nate, the team’s conscience and beating heart. Nate is an operational psychologist and “a walking encyclopedia of American culture.” Ruah will play Kensi, a super bright young investigator who studied forensics and criminology in college.
NCIS, which is arguably TEN’s most dependable drama, started life as an episode of JAG.
