Sneak Peek: Scott Bakula Previews NCIS: New Orleans

Scott Bakula

If you're seeking a metaphor for acting, you couldn't do much better than the body-jumping premise of Quantum Leap. In the 21 years since that series went off the air, its star, Scott Bakula, has leaped into a striking array of characters, with an initial emphasis on more sci-fi (Star Trek: Enterprise) eventually offset by a turn toward naturalistic dramedy (Men of a Certain Age). But playing a cop on a network procedural? Inexplicably, that seemingly inevitable move had proven a leap too far.

This oversight has finally been rectified with Bakula's role as the lead in NCIS: New Orleans, premiering on CBS Sept. 23 in the coveted Tuesday time slot immediately following the franchise's flagship series...

Scott Bakula on Joining Desperate Housewives, Getting Thrown Under the Bus by Smash

Scott Bakula

After eight years, Scott Bakula was ready to kiss the ladies of Desperate Housewives goodbye — and with them, any dreams he had of guest-starring on the show. But he made it to Wisteria Lane in the nick of time.

"[Series creator] Marc Cherry and I had been bumping into each other. He kept saying, 'I want to have you on the show,' and I kept telling him, 'I love the show. I'd love to be on it,'" Bakula tells TVGuide.com. "I thought that the ship had sailed on this one."

On the Set Farewell to Chuck Part 3: Cast Tears and Favorite Moments

Chuck, Ryan McPartlin and Sarah Lancaster

Zachary Levi doesn't have any regrets that Chuck is ending with only a 13-episode fifth season.

"I don't feel like we were cut short, as difficult as it is to shut this last chapter on this journey," he told reporters at a December set visit for Chuck's two-hour series finale (Friday, 8/7c, NBC). "I think five seasons is actually a really good amount of time. ... For something like this, which is definitely story arcs and serial, how many bad guys and missions can you go on before you feel like you're repeating the same thing? So I feel like we've gotten a really perfect amount of time together and it's been special from Day One."

From Chuck to Nikita: TV's sexiest crime fighters

After five years of the geek getting the girl, far-flung fantasy spy missions and a cavalcade of nerd-dom's finest guest stars, it's easy to see why Levin isn't exactly complaining. In fact, he and his fellow castmates were only too happy to reminisce.
