Shortly after CBS announced that Scott Bakula will lead the NCIS spinoff pilot, the network has now confirmed two more casting additions:

  1. CCH Pounder (Sons of Anarchy, pictured) will portray an eccentric/intelligent medical examiner named Dr. Wade.
  2. Zoe McLellan (JAG) will play Special Agent Brody, a Midwestern native who arrives in New Orleans seeking for a fresh start and a safe haven.
