Linda Hunt Cast on NCIS: Los Angeles

at . Comments

Linda Hunt is coming aboard NCIS: Los Angeles.

The diminutive Oscar-winner will play a series regular on the CBS spin-off, as her character is described in Entertainment Weekly as an "efficient and hard-nosed former film industry technician." She now oversees the "backroom" support staff; i.e. those that provide everything from assistance and equipment to team.

"Nothing fazes her," said executive producer Shane Brennan of the character. "But as tough as she might seem, she genuinely cares about Callen (Chris O'Donnell) and the team."
