Jeri Ryan has nabbed a critical role on NCIS Season 12.
The veteran actress (Leverage, Body of Proof, Helix) will come on board television's highest-rated series as Rebecca, the never-before-seen third ex-wife of one Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
Says NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg of the casting decision:
"After 12 seasons there was still one ex-wife to cast opposite Gibbs and we found her in the beautiful and talented Jeri Ryan. We’re all very excited to have Jeri join us for a storyline that’s chock full of surprises."
After taking a week off, NCIS Season 12 Episode 7 will air next Tuesday.
Ryan, meanwhile, will debut some time in early 2015.
