NCIS: Casting for a Father-in-Law

by at . Comments

We all know the major NCIS casting news these days:

Cote de Pablo will exit the series following this September's NCIS Season 11 premiere.

But William Keck of TV Guide Magazine has broken another tidbit concerning a different character and a memorable, sad event from the show's past: this year's Thanksgiving episode will focus on Leon Vance, who will be spending his first holiday season without his late spouse, Jackie.

"We'll be casting the father of Vance's wife," executive producer Gary Glasberg tells the publication. "We think it will really have some resonance."

NCIS Season 11 kicks off on Tuesday, September 24.

Got any casting suggestions for the role of Vance's father-in-law?

Do the writer's not realize that we were told in season 9 that Jackie Vance's parents were dead? Wasn't Vance Michael's father figure and help raise him. This would be an epic storyline mistake. I cannot believe they would forget this, the story was just in season 9. I believe it was episode 19 of season 9 "The Good Son".

NCIS Quotes

Abby: Have the bad things been outweighing the good things all these years and I just ever noticed?
McGee: What do you mean?
Abby: All I ever wanted was to help people with the truth. And I've done that, but then bad still won sometimes. And I just want to file it away, like it never happened so I can go back to being happy.
McGee: There's nothing wrong with that.
Abby: Yes there is McGee because sometimes the Cutwrights and the Dunns, they just keep fighting no matter what the truth is. And sometimes Ricki never gets to see her grandpa again. If the bad outweighs the good then that means that I'm not enough.
McGee: Abby listen to me...
Abby: And if I'm not enough, McGee, then why even try?

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.
