How did bow ties come into Ducky's life? 

That's just one of the things we'll find out in the upcoming flashback episode of NCIS Season 11 when actor Adam Campbell takes on the role of Young Ducky.

Adam Campbell

Campbell (Mixology, Touch, 2 Broke Girls) will appear in the third episode of the fall and is married to former Glee star Jayma Mays. 

Said Executive Producer Gary Glasberg of the casting: "When we saw Adam, all we could think of was a young David McCallum. We can't wait to introduce him as young Ducky and watch what he brings to this unusual role.” 

Besides how Ducky came to wear the infamous bow ties, we'll find out about past relationships for the beloved character, whose past we will delve into this October.

The new season of NCIS kicks off September 23 on CBS.
