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.

I was hoping someone would mention Freaky Friday, they had great screen chemistry in that movie why not on the small screen, looking forward to the sparks to fly between these two great actors.

I like Jamie and this should make for an interesting 2 shows. Gibbs need to meet his match, he's such a player, It would be good to see him do the chasing. Let the cat have her day, the dogs allways getaway with the bone. LOL

[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.

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.
