Jamie Lee Curtis Joining NCIS For Two-Part Story Arc

at . Comments

Jamie Lee Curtis will appear on a pair of November sweeps episodes of NCIS, sharing scenes and possibly sparks with Mark Harmon's Gibbs, according to TV Line.

In a two-part episode, Curtis will play Charlotte Ryan, a strong, opinionated career woman from the Office of the Inspector General in the Department of Defense.

Ryan will spar with Gibbs and the team like never before, apparently, so “don’t be surprised if there are sparks between Gibbs and Ryan,” says Gary Glasberg.

“We’re expecting some real chemistry,” the NCIS executive producer adds.

The role of Charlotte Ryan will benefit from Jamie's shoot-from-the-hip style, Glasberg adds, noting that the 52-year-old Curtis "embodies everything we want from Ryan - humor, heart, strength, and a lot of fun. We couldn’t be more excited she’s here.”

How about you? Can you see her holding her own with Gibbs?

Season 9 of NCIS premieres Tuesday, September 20, on CBS.
