Boat and Casting Scoop from the World of NCIS

by at . Comments

Shane Brennan is a busy man. He's serving as the executive producer for both NCIS and its upcoming spin-off, NCIS: Los Angeles, this fall.

But Brennan found time to chat with Michael Ausiello this week, spilling a couple of beans regarding storylines on his two shows.

For example, when asked about the status of Gibbs' boat next season, the producer said viewers haven't seen the last of it.

“In the first three or four episodes, Gibbs has his tape measure out and he’s measuring the basin. And everyone will have to wait and see what goes in there," he said.

As for NCIS: Los Angeles, it's already been confirmed that Louise Lombard is out as Lara Macy, the presumed female lead.

Will we ever see this character on the show again? Maybe.

“She didn’t die,” Brennan said. “We’ll find out that she went to an overseas post. When Callen (Chris O’Donnell) was shot last season, they had to move to the new operation center and [Lara] was relocated. Will she come back? Never say never.”

Louise Lombard was great in the role as Lara Macy. I doubt they can find anyone to do a better job. I also do not care for the older lady that was hired. This was no way to bring in younger audiences.
