Colin Hanks Lands Key Role in NCIS Season 10 Finale Arc

at . Comments

Colin Hanks will guest star on NCIS next month, and his role sounds like a crucial one.

The 35-year-old actor will appear in NCIS Season 10's final two episodes, May 7 and May 14, as Department of Defense Investigator Richard Parsons, and when he first appears, look out.

Executive producer Gary Glasberg describes Parsons as “Ken Starr, J. Edgar Hoover and an angry pitbull wrapped into one" and says Hanks will help “make it a truly memorable finale.”

The show returns April 23 with "Berlin," the first of four new episodes to finish off the season. As we saw last night (see our NCIS review of "Chasing Ghosts"), we can expect fireworks.

What role do you think Hanks' character will play in the season-ending drama?

Department of Defense Investigator better leave zuva alone. Gibbs will handle him.


Not really one of the reason CM stay fresh is because they have a different team member every couple of year


@Michael The NCIS team now is perfect, and if they had a new one, it would wreck the entire show.


I wonder could we see a new NCIS team


@Michael Well we all know that it is not a series finale since it has been renewed for season 11 and Mark Harmon signed a 2 year contract. So, there will probably be a season 12. I don't think that the number 1 drama on tv is just all of a sudden going to pull the plug at the height of their success.


The more and more we found out about this season finale the more it sound like a series finale


Michael is the one who also keeps insisting that the person behind all this is Ziva's dead mother who's trying to become the head of Mossad. His reputation on here precedes him.


@ Guest!: that's because Michael IS a petulant child...


@Michael You have me confused with someone else. I never said anything about hating EJ or Michael Weatherly hating EJ. Pay attention to your comments and keep track of what you are saying and who you are saying it to. I have never made a comment about MW hating anyone or made a comment about EJ. You said that Ziva lovers hated EJ and that hating was a sin. I never said a thing about her. But I am done with arguing with you because trying to have a conversation with you is like trying to reason with a petulant child.


@Michael Yes Michael, the feds will go after Team Gibbs. AFTER both "Berlin" and "Revenge". Tony may be in a prison uniform AFTER those two episodes, but it doesn't appear as though that will be the case during "Berlin", or even "Revenge".

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.
