Jamie Lee Curtis Joining NCIS For Two-Part Story Arc

by 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 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

NCIS Quotes

McGee: All right. Well you should probably know that Abby and I used to date?
Bishop: Ew. Like, each other?
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: Wait - isn't that a violation of rule 12, never date a....
McGee: It was a long time ago. After we'd broken up, one night I went to her lab. Found a scribbled piece paper; a list. Potential boyfriends had to fulfill certain conditions by a pre-arranged date or else, goodbye.
Bishop: Such as.
McGee: Things started off relatively normal: opening the door for her, flowers, putting the seat down. Then around number 8, it gets uh...
Bishop: What?
McGee: Does she know you have these?
Bishop: Does she know you have these?
McGee: Yeah she wasn't happy when she found out.
Bishop: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: These ideas apply to you?
McGee: No those rules weren't in place when we were together. At least I don't think so.
Bishop: What's with the two month cutoff? Abby's sabotaging herself. I've seen stuff like this before. We have to talk to her.

McGee: You know something I don't? Working tonight and tomorrow night?
Tony: No, Tim. It's just that Zoe's parents are in town and they want to have dinner. I'm not ready for that.
Abby: So you deceived her.
Tony: I was put on the spot. I was not prepared.
McGee: Whoa. Hey. What are you afraid of?
Tony: I don't know.
Abby: They're probably really nice.
Tony: I'm sure they are. I've just never had dinner with the parents of a woman I'm seriously involved with.
McGee: That's not true. What about Jon Benois?
Tony: No, technically that wasn't me because I was undercover as Tony DiNardo, professor of film studies. I wasn't myself back then. Meeting the parents for dinner could trigger a whole chain of events.
Abby: It's just dinner, Tony.
Tony: You have dinner yet with Ranger Burt's parents? I didn't think so. Then put down the gavel, take off the robe and stop judging, both of you.
Abby: Okay.
