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?

I was hoping that all the sappy soapy writing would leave with Ziva. In The Good Son, part of the story was that Jackie's parents were dead. I guess in their rage to bring us yet another daddy drama they forgot. Another Vance drama? Nods off to sleep.

Why not Bill Cosby or Danny Glover

Ryan Reynolds or Dan Stevens
