Off The Map Lines Up Strong List of Guest Stars

by at . Comments

The premiere of Off The Map, which aired last night for a second time after Grey's Anatomy, featured Spinal Tap's Michael McKean enduring quite the zipline crisis.

He's but the first of many quality guest stars lined up this season, according to TV Line. Next week, in fact, Cheech Marin kicks off a multiple-episode run as Papa.

Cheech's character is a village medicine man who develops a fun love-hate relationship with Tommy (Zach Gilford), Off The Map creator Jenna Bans reveals.

Gibbs and Father

Ralph Waite (with Mark Harmon, pictured above), who plays Gibbs' father on NCIS, has been cast in an upcoming role that Bans would only describe as “shocking.”

Also on tap for the Map? Elizabeth Pena, for “a great arc toward the end of the season, as the mother of one of Lily’s (Caroline Dhavernas) ex-ex-ex-boyfriends.”

We can also look for Ed Begley Jr., who will soon turn up as “a traveling dentist” who has a “great episode with Mamie Gummer,” according to the shot-caller.

Finally, British actor Jonathan Cake will play “a guy who’s been in love with Zee (Valerie Cruz) for years and years,” setting up a triangle with Jason George‘s Otis.

I agree with Sue Ann. Gibbs father hope nothing happens to him because he is big part of th show for recurring hope he still guest stars on NCIS. off the map I don`t like it I know it`s a new show but I can`t get into it.

NCIS I hope they do not something ghastly to Mr. Gibbs. I so love being able to see Ralph Waite on NCIS every season lately. The episode where Jethro had to put up with having both Mike Franks and Mr. Gibbs around together was a major crackup.

So sick of hearing everyone complaining about this show and they've only aired a pilot so far... Give it a bit of a better chance than just criticising it after one episode.

This show needs to get cancelled. :/ It's horrible. Lost meets Grey's but it isnt even close to being as good as them.
