‘NCIS’: The ‘NCIS’ Cast Shares Their Guest Star Wish List
NCIS has featured many interesting guest stars throughout the years. Here’s what the NCIS cast members said when asked who is on their guest-star wish list.
Michael Weatherly, who played Tony DiNozzo on the hit show, once said he would love to have Tom Hanks on NCIS. “I think it’s doable,” said Weatherly in an interview with CBS about NCIS Season 10. “Tom Hanks should come. He could bring Rita, and they could bring the kids.”
This next pick might surprise you. Brian Dietzen told CBS he really wants to see Alec Baldwin appear on NCIS. “A character that Alec Baldwin played in The Departed, I want that character here,” said Dietzen. “I want Alec Baldwin here.” Dietzen says he would love to have Baldwin in an interrogation scene.
Rocky Carroll (Director Leon Vance) said his wish list would include Jack Nicholson. Carroll said Mark Harmon mentioned Nicholson is a big fan of NCIS. “Because [Mark Harmon] said [Jack Nicholson] was a fan of the show, and he was going on and on about it,” Carroll told CBS.
David McCallum’s guest-star pick is Penelope Cruz. “I think Penelope Cruz,” said McCallum in his CBS interview. “She’s kind of cool. She’d make a great agent.” Apparently, McCallum has a little crush on the actress. The other cast members poked fun at him when it was his turn.
Another pick that might surprise you is Pauley Perrette’s choice. She says Drew Carey is an actor who would be a good guest star.
“I’ve been saying this for years,” said Perrette in the CBS round table interview. “Drew Carey is a real Marine. He really did this. We are playing out parts of his life. He’s an outstanding guy, he’s a funny guy. But he’s also a fantastic actor. And we always love having real military people involved here. And he has such respect for the military and veterans, and he does so much work for that. And he’s a fantastic actor. I could just see him on our show.”
David McCallum isn’t the only cast member with a celebrity crush. Sean Murray revealed he would like to see actress Kate Winslet on NCIS because he has “a thing” for her. “For me it would be Kate Winslet,” Murray told CBS. “Just because I have a thing for Kate Winslet. I’m not sure exactly what she would play.”
Mark Harmon didn’t reveal is top choice for a guest star. Instead, he reflected on how lucky the cast has been to have already worked with such talented actors. “I think we’ve all been so lucky to have the group of talent we have come here each week, whether they’re well-known or whether they’re just good actors,” said Harmon. “We’re gifted here with the kind of people we’ve had not only this year but in the years past.”
