Gossip About Gibbs - NCIS

On the heels of Weatherly announcing his impending departure from the CBS drama, TV Line has confirmed that NCIS is looking to bring on board a "name" actress in time for the NCIS Season 13 finale.

This actress will portray Tess, a FBI Special Agent who comes to D.C. from New York City's Counter-Terrorist Unit.

According to TV Line insiders, Tess is sarcastic and intelligent.

She's comfortable at a black-tie affair or at a dive bar. She believes sleep and sex are "overrated" and she loves a quality martini and a rare bacon cheeseburger.

Tess has also been divorced three times; does not have any kids; and occasionally gets in trouble with her superiors when she’s angry.

So there you have it.

And you know what question is coming next, right? Who should play Tess?!?
