Bevy of NCIS Guest Stars Announced

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.

NCIS Quotes

Palmer: I take it you heard?
Gibbs: Mmm hmm.
Palmer: Yeah, she saw the baby and just....I guess she felt the same way we felt when we first saw him. Can't fault her for that, right?
Gibbs: You should go home.
Palmer: I will. Yeah Breena and I, we just wanted to get all this stuff out of the house. You know, we wanted to give it back as soon as possible.
Gibbs: We.
Palmer: Me. She's hurting too, but she is so much stronger. She's ready to try again. And me - I feel like I can't breathe. I never felt this bad in my life, Gibbs.
Gibbs: Well, just wait until it's 3:00 in the morning, and your kid's running 104. You're just getting started.
Palmer: That's the point. I'm not starting, you know? Maybe I never will.
Gibbs: Well then fight for it, Palmer! That's what you do. You fight for your family. And sometimes, you fight like hell just to have one.
Palmer: You want me to fight, I feel like I just went ten rounds with Joe Louis.
Gibbs: Do you want to be a dad, Palmer? Because right now, this is being a dad.
Palmer: Maybe I'm not ready.
Gibbs: You wouldn't feel the way you feel, right now, if you weren't ready.
