In Focus: NCIS' Michael Weatherly Is Happy Being the Second Banana

Michael Weatherly, NCIS

Michael Weatherly shares plenty of similarities with Tony DiNozzo, the character he has played for eight seasons on NCIS.

Weatherly and DiNozzo are both energetic cut-ups who always seem in search of a punch line. And they both talk a lot. Like, seriously, a lot.

"Energy is the biggest part of my job," Weatherly, 42, tells TVGuide.com. "That sounds weird, but if I'm in a scene, I try to punch it up. And sometimes I really overdo it and they have to cut around me."

Tori & Dean Star: "We Definitely Want to Expand the McDermott Clan"

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott

When it comes to being a good dad, Dean McDermott says Cliff Huxtable, from the '80s sitcom The Cosby Show, is his role model.

As host of the upcoming TV Guide Network special Modern TV Dads: Father Doesn't Know Best (Sun, 8/7c), McDermott tells TVGuide.com that while he'd love to emulate 24's Jack Bauer for the "cool, tough guy factor," he relates more to Dr. Huxtable because he "loves to goof around, to keep things light," but also isn't afraid of a little discipline.

Premise: Cosby played a doctor and dad in this all-time classic, which was TV's biggest hit in the 1980s and almost single-handedly revived the sitcom genre and NBC's ratings fortunes after ABC passed on the series. Mostly set in a Brooklyn brownstone, the series focused on obstetrician Cliff Huxtable and his wife, Claire, a lawyer, as they raised their kids with loving firmness. The series debuted in September 1984, ran for eight seasons and produced one spin-off, `A Different World.'
