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.

Leave jamie lee curtis alone! She's a damn good actress. And is a great asset to ncis. I think they should put her on full time. I feel that her and gibbs should get married, he deserves it !!!!!!!!


I think Jamie lee curtis undermines Gibbs' credibility. He's always know when suspects are lying , etc. I like her but not on NCIS. IT DOES NOT WORK. Her character is causing Gibbs to lose his edge


Jamie Lee Curtis is awful on NCIS. There's a reason she doesn't work alot.
Poor Gibbs. Poorer US...your faithful audience. Please, Gary Glasberg, have her written out. This experiment is a loser.


I like Jamie Lee Curtis and she was great the other night on NCIS. I think she would be a grat addition form time to time


I am not a big Jamie Lee Curtis fan and I cannot see any chemistry of any kind between her and Gibbs.


I love Jamie lee Curtis as an actress and she is great, but not with Gibbs, i with the others leave him alone


zzzzzzzzzz just leave Gibbs alone -- I am so tired of these women characters always having to be "B*** breakers" enough.


I just can't wait for the new season 9 of NCIS - I get withdrawal symptoms, so I keep watching re-runs of the other seasons - at the moment still has Kate in it. You in the US may be starting to watch it in September, but we may have to wait a few more weeks after that, may be into November:(


I've never seen Freaky Friday, but I think Jamie Lee Curtis is wonderful and I love her honest acting and her voice. I think she will fit in very well with Gibbs and his Team. With all of these 'spoilers' I anxiously await Season 9. I've missed my Team a lot and need to see them again...soon


I Love Jamie Lee Curtis! Should be good!

[voiceover] Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. Your destiny can't be changed but, it can be challenged. Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.


Abby: It's okay. Breena's fine. Breathe. Good. Now hurry up and get to the hospital because Breena is in labor.
McGee: Jimmy? Did you hear what she said? She just said Breena's having a baby. I think you broke him.
