David McCallum Returning For NCIS Season 8

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.

Mark Harmon has to be the best along with all the team. More of Cote de Costa in that gorgeous blue dress and performing on stage. That scene blew me away. Cheers


Without the whole team back including David McCallum I would be devastated. The best show on TV. Keep it going. Cheers

Tony: One other question, I know you're an expert in English history. And I was just wondering, have you ever heard of Archibald Drummond, the 17th Earl of Trent?
Ducky: The Earl of Trent. No, I can't say I have. Why?
Tony: I was just wondering. Thanks.

By the way, Gibbs. I like the new look.
