David McCallum Returning For NCIS Season 8

by at . Comments

Reports have indicated that a number of NCIS cast members are not currently signed on to return for Season Eight next fall, but don't count David McCallum among them.

"I'm sure some of the others are negotiating, but he's not affected by it," says Abe Hoch, manager of the legendary and popular actor who plays medical examiner Ducky.

"He falls into the Mark Harmon-Rocky Carroll category. He's signed on for additional seasons. He's excited to be coming back to the show and can't wait to see everybody."

The status of Michael Weatherly, Sean Murray and Pauley Perrette is unclear.

Of negotiations to renew McCallum's deal that brought the original cast member back for 2010-11, Hoch says, "Certainly it went well for us, and he's happy to be back."

McCallum, who first gamed fame as Russian-born secret agent Illya Kuryakin, in the '60s series The Man from U.N.C.L.E., is showing no signs of slowing down at age 76.

We're glad Ducky will be back ... chats with corpses and all.
