CBS announced today that Wilmer Valderrama has joined the cast of NCIS, television’s #1 drama, as a series regular.
Valderrama will play a once grounded NCIS field agent who accepted a deep cover assignment years ago and never resurfaced. Many agents don’t know he’s still on the job or that he’s even alive. Now, he’s back and his dedication to job and country has left him an unpredictable, charismatic loose cannon.
“Wilmer Valderrama will be able to flex his dramatic, physical and comedic talents in this classic ‘NCIS’ role,” said Executive Producer Gary Glasberg. “Fans are going to see him like they’ve never seen him before. This is going to be fun. We’re thrilled he’s coming aboard.”
Most recently, Valderrama had a recurring role on “Grey’s Anatomy.” His additional television credits include “That ‘70s Show,” “Minority Report,” “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” and “Awake.”
Valderrama’s film credits include the indie dramas “To Whom It May Concern,” from French director Manu Boyer, and “The Adderall Diaries,” opposite Amber Heard and James Franco, which premiered at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, as well as “Larry Crowne,” “From Prada to Nada,” “Fast Food Nation” and “The Dry Land.”
NCIS stars Mark Harmon, Pauley Perrette, Sean Murray, Rocky Carroll, Emily Wickersham, Brian Dietzen and David McCallum. It is produced by Belisarius Productions in association with CBS Television Studios.
