Sopranos Alum Joins NCIS — Is She Ziva's Replacement?
The Sopranos vet Emily Wickersham has landed a multi-episode arc on NCIS, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
As first reported by TVLine.com, Wickersham will play Bishop, a focused and socially awkward new agent. Since Wickersham has the potential to appear in additional episodes, she seems like a likely candidate to replace Ziva when Cote de Pablo exits at the beginning of this season. She will first appear on the CBS series during November sweeps.
