Bevy of NCIS Guest Stars Announced

by at . Comments

Looks like the talented ranks of NCIS guest stars will swell in 2010.

Tomorrow night's episode, "Faith," closes the book on 2009. When the new year's first episode, "Ignition," airs January 5, it will feature some familiar prime-time faces.

Rena Sofer (pictured), who's guested on everything from 24 to Heroes to recent episodes of CBS' Criminal Minds and Ghost Whisperer, will play a tough-as-nails lawyer.

According to TV Guide, her character on NCIS tangles with her old nemesis, Gibbs (Mark Harmon), when one of her clients is suspected in the murder of a Navy pilot.

Rena Sofer is getting ready to tangle with Gibbs. Too bad for her!

There's more. The possible perp will be played by Marcus Giamatti (brother of actor Paul Giamatti), who spent six seasons as Amy's brother Peter on Judging Amy.

Plus, his ex-wife, who'll also play a role, will be played by Melinda Page Hamilton, known to Mad Men fans as Anna Draper, wife of the real Don Draper in Season 2.

We expect all three to be stellar additions to the well-written show.
