Well, this is quite the surprise, JAG and NCIS: Los Angeles Fanatics!
David James Elliott, who starred on the hit CBS drama series, JAG, has signed up to appear in some upcoming episodes of NCIS: Angeles, according to Deadline.
What's more, David will be reprising the role of Navy Captain Harmon Rabb Jr. It's a big surprise, for sure, but a good one!
His first episode is slated to premiere May 12, and it is titled "The Guardian."
JAG was a roaring success, running for ten seasons from 1995-2005. The original NCIS is an offshoot of that series. While there are three NCIS series on the air, this will be the first time viewers will be seeing Harmon since JAG.
R. Scott Gemmill, who is an executive producer and showrunner on NCIS: Los Angeles also worked on JAG.
“I was really excited to get a chance to work with David again,” Gemmill said.
“I did the first 4 seasons of JAG with him so to be able to work together again in and of itself is great–but to do so with the same character…on our show…this many years later—that’s pretty damn amazing. Bringing Harmon Rabb to work with NCIS: Los Angeles makes for a formidable coalition, and both entities are going to need all the help they can get when confronted with the greatest challenge of their careers.”
In Elliott’s first episode with the series, the NCIS team uncovers a group ISIS sympathizers planning an attack on U.S. aircraft carriers.
Callen and Sam will work directly with Rabb, who is now the XO Captain on the USS Intrepid.
