Enrique Murciano Cast as Ray on NCIS

by at . Comments

We now have a face to go with the name. Enrique Murciano of Without a Trace fame is joining the cast of NCIS for multiple episodes as Ziva's boyfriend Ray.

He's been in her life all season, but we've yet to meet the man. That will change when CIA agent Ray Cruz makes his debut on the CBS smash in Episode 20.

Executive producer Gary Glasberg calls Murciano a “fun, smart, exciting addition” to the NCIS cast, adding “We can’t wait to watch Enrique [Ray] to life.”

The million-dollar question: How will Tony react to Ray's arrival?

“I think it’s going to be interesting,” Michael Weatherly, who plays Tony and makes his directorial debut this evening, tells TV Line. “Tony cares a lot about Ziva and wants to make sure she’s not mixed up with the wrong guy, so he’s going to be watchful and protective.”

Thoughts on the casting of Ray? What do you think brings him to town? Think he's part of a bigger story arc for Ziva? Share your theories and comments below.

I love NCIS I think Gibbs is the sexiest man on TV and would beat on the big screen if he was in a movie.

I LOVE Enrique. He was great and sexy on Marry Me; the role showed the fun side of him. I think a little spice is great for the show.

LOVE NCIS. DO NOT LOVE/LIKE OR WANT AGENT BARRETT ON THE PROGRAM. WANT GIBBS, DINOZZO, MCGEE, ABBY, ZIVA, DUCKIE AND PALMER. ANYONE ELSE NEEDS TO BE ON THE PROGRAM FOR ONLY ONE OR TWO EPISODES

WOW HUGE EARS, I HOPE ZIVA MOVES FAR, FAR AWAY WITH HIM....ZIVA SUCKS!

bueno esperemos a ver lo que pasa,estan en igualdad de condiciones ziva y toni,pero me pregunto,sera que sus parejas aguantaran los sentimientos de los dos(ziva y Tonio),porque ese interes mutuo entre sus vidas solo se ve en una pareja que se ama y ziva husmea demasiado en la vida de toni y visceversa o no?

Hope he kills off E.J.

Just better be good for Ziva, I think Tony and Ziva belong together!

he's not my favorite actor (not one ounce of sex appeal for a leading man) and MOST definitely not who i picture ziva with, but so be it, the writers have done an awesome job so far. guess i was looking more for "RAY" being tony and ziva's "love child" since that would explain the reason she ended up in somalia(?)...trying to re-train and prove herself to moussad (sp?). sorry off on a tangent.....................can't wait to see how this plays out. love michael weatherly's comment that "tony cares alot about ziva........" well, on my tv screen it comes thorugh as pure lust/love. good luck. LOVE THIS SHOW!!
