Wilmer Valderrama Joins NCIS as a Regular

NCIS has recruited That ’70s Show‘s and Minority Report top cop Wilmer Valderrama to join the Season 14 cast as a full-fledged series regular.

The actor, who just wrapped a five-episode arc on Grey’s Anatomy, will play a “once grounded NCIS field agent who accepted a deep cover assignment years ago and never resurfaced. Many agents don’t know he’s still on the job or that he’s even alive. Now, he’s back and his dedication to job and country has left him an unpredictable, charismatic loose cannon.”

In a statement, exec producer Gary Glasberg said the role will allow Valderrama to “flex his dramatic, physical and comedic talents,” adding, “Fans are going to see him like they’ve never seen him before. This is going to be fun. We’re thrilled he’s coming aboard.

Valderrama’s hiring comes as NCIS heads into its first season without Michael Weatherly, whose 13-year run on the CBS juggernaut ended with last month’s Season 13 finale. It also follows last spring’s casting of British actor Duane Henry and 24 alum Sarah Clarke in recurring roles.
