NCIS: Los Angeles
Would CBS' NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles be monster successes if such charismatic actors as Mark Harmon, Pauley Perrette, LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell hadn't been cast in the leading roles? Probably not. Now Shane Brennan, exec producer of the franchise, is hoping to spin off yet another series. This one, scheduled to test-launch as a special episode of NCIS: L.A. this spring, centers on a mobile organization called Red Team. Here are the major roles currently being cast, along with some recommendations of actors who might be looking for work....
Michael Weatherly and Dr. Phil McGraw
On NCIS, Tony DiNozzo is always getting his head slapped, but does he need to have it shrunk, too? Michael Weatherly has created a couple of surreal YouTube clips in which the raffish agent is confronted by Dr. Phil at the behest of concerned buddy Jimmy Palmer — based, he says, on...

"This is all just a setup," says Pauley Perrette, walking into the NCIS writers' room north of Los Angeles. Michael Weatherly fatalistically adds: "This is where we all..." Brian Dietzen finishes the thought: "...meet our end."
Not bloody likely. Sure, the series did off a couple major characters in the first five seasons (RIP, Lauren Holly's Jenny), and some significant recurring characters have met their makers in the five years since (Mike Franks, we hardly knew ye!). But the chances of any of these eight diehards going down anytime before the show ends its run are about the same as the odds of Gibbs cracking a sustained smile.
Speaking of which: When we gathered all eight regular cast members of TV's No. 1 drama for a historic summit, their fearless leader, Mark Harmon, was largely the quiet man out. When his colleagues finally called him on his reticence, he swore he was having too good a time listening to everyone else's banter. As you read this unprecedented full-cast gabfest, you'll know exactly what he means.
Following NCIS' season-ending explosion at the Navy yard, Gibbs & Co. will start the new season a little worse for wear.
