Leslie Hope to Play Pivotal Role on NCIS Season 11

by at . Comments

Leslie Hope is on her way to CBS.

The veteran actress (24, The Mentalist, Revolution) will guest star on the second episode of NCIS Season 11 and only stick around for one installment... but her character will nevertheless play a crucial role, showrunner, Gary Glasberg tells TV Line.

Hope's character “is one that has tremendous importance in the NCIS world,” Glasberg teases of Sarah Porter, a high-level Navy official. “I can’t think of anyone I’d rather have joining us at this pivotal time than Leslie. We’re thrilled to have her.”

The significant episode in question will be titled “Past, Present, Future.”

NCIS Season 11, meanwhile, kicks off on Tuesday, September 24.

Sounds like some people are fans not of the show, but only of certain characters. If they jump ship when those characters leave, no big deal. As misty says, the show can survive, with good writing and solid scripts. I hope it can go on.... WITHOUT the ridiculous distractions they've inflicted over the past few seasons. Also Lauren Holly did not quit she was always suppose to die

August 27th, 2013 7:39 PM How is this for a suggestion? DePablo just wants to be an actor. There are 47 minutes of show and a planned recurring 9-10 actors per show. Add the suspects and witness, assuming Gary The Showrunner wants some relationship to NCIS'S old way of doing things, say solving a crime or two, then she - and most of the rest of the cast - get maybe 3 minutes screen time, not counting just standing around. Forecast: McGee will be gone next year which is when Murray comes up for renewal. They never have developed that character. Which is too bad, I like him and have gotten tired of his Abby's stupid puppy act. One other comment. Todd quit, Sheppard quit, dePablo quit. Each with little to no explanation, just the polite requirement saying how much they enjoyed working with their co-workers. Kinda makes me wonder how much fun working there iws.

I personally I'm very upset that Cote is leaving. Most shows I don't really care about but this team takes all of its characters to make the show. I think they should get her back no matter what it takes (with in reason that is).

I like Leslie but I don't think she's a fit they need to get Cote back. NCIS is great we just need Cote to stay put this show has longevity. Loved Kate and love Ziva we cant get back Kate since they put a bullet in her head but we can have back Ziva so NCIS need to go get her back now

Please dear Cote,
love of my life, i love you,really , if i could i would even marry you, i like you soooo very much ,in real life aswell in your role as Ziva David. My whole family does , your the reason why we watch Ncis and Gibbs,Tony,McGee,Abby,Ducky and his helper,Leon Vance,.... Your beeïngin NCIS is soooo important, we can't stand to loose you, please reconsider, before it is too late !!! In the series , not long ago, you said farewell to your father, the mossad, proudly became a usa citizen, just to be with NSIS, and nowsuddenly leave? This can't be happening, makes no sence.. I won't look NCIS anymore or maybe not with the good feeling watching you starring in the series, YOU ARE NCIS !!! Your the one who make things exciting, complete,just the one who is every crook stopped just when he thinks he is every one shekedd off, just like Gibbs also, and there are you, a big strong character who smarted out the crook. You made Ncis exiting with your karma, very nice looks, funny, smart, a sexy killing machine, since Kate was killed, NO ONE can replace you, you're the reason why we exited watch ncis, watching every scene you play, with overwelming joy ! When i see you acting you make me very happy, please,please, PLEASE don't ruin my life by leaving. N.C.I.S. is the best series i have seen in my whole 45 years, if i weren't married, i'd marry you,if you where available ofcourse, I'lleven consider a divorcefrom my wife without a doubt. You in ncis fills my poor and rotten life with undescibebly joy of watching ncis every week, never miss one. i can not imagine ncis without you nor the rest of the cast, equally. a serie so good with actors like you in these scripts and storylines it deserves to be made forever if it could be theat way, never boring. i can not recover from this, my life is even more broken now i know you're leaving... i hevae now next to nothing to live for, except for my Elvis music and films/documentaries... just as important as NCIS in the current setting. I admit, I cried when you was tortured in that episode when you was captured on that ship.... the relationship with Gibbs, an Tony, touches my heart, hoping You and Tony someday would be a pair ... I do not know the reason why You want to quit, i read more money cant help, so please can you reveal the reason why so i can try to understand ??? if you do not return, nothing is the same any more... And I and many more would be heartbroken, and will go on heartbroken, remembering your Über fantastic role you forfilled. Please i begg you dear Cote ! love of my life... and love as speacial agent Ziva David at Ncis. Please do not break up the perfect team in the most perfect series ever. Nothing comes close to it, Not even Ncis:LA....even though i like them too ! Not understanding why i'll trie to understand your leaving even though i don't like it. I'll miss you like crazy!Hoping you and the team make it back safely each time you are on a mission, cause i can't stand to loose either one of you, especially you... But i reckon , life must go on, even without Ziva. I crie a tear of two for you, and hope you be happy whatever you're gonna do, hopefully starring in another series or movies with you in it. And hope to see much of you as I/we can. Good luck to you in your further life, and hopefully a happy one. From Holland,(the Netherlands) where Ncis is very popular, I send you my love and wish you all the luck in the world. We'll miss you, as Ziva David, as Cote de Pablo. Shalom, Ziva. Farewell. Please make a sick man with very much pain every day, (I'm very ill) happy and reconsider to stay in the fantastic team of Ncis ? Please ? Semper Fi, Sincerely yours , Casper van den Berg, the Netherlands.
