Raymond J. Barry, whose long list of credits includes playing Jack’s grandpa on Lost, is coming to NCIS: Los Angeles as a former secret agent who shares a past with Hetty.
Barry’s character, Branston Cole, appears “frail and blind from a stroke he suffered a while back, but he remains vigorous and sarcastic" while living in a retirement home.
"A man with a long history and a deep well of secrets, he seems to still enjoy the game of espionage and manipulation, leading his handlers down questionable paths.”
Barry first shows up during November sweeps. Might this be one of Linda Hunt's character's legendary dalliances from the past? We'll find out in just a couple of weeks.
