It’s a Freaky Friday reunion for NCIS star Mark Harmon and Jamie Lee Curtis. Curtis has been booked for two episodes of TV’s top-rated drama that will air in November. She’ll play strong-willed career woman and single mom Charlotte Ryan, from the Office of the Inspector General in the Department of Defense, who will spar with Gibbs and the team. Says exec producer Gary Glasberg, “The role of ‘Charlotte Ryan’ got even better when the enormously talented Jamie Lee Curtis agreed to join us. Jamie’s shoot-from-the-hip style embodies everything we want from Ryan — humor, heart, strength, and a lot of fun. We couldn’t be more excited she’s here. And don’t be surprised if there are sparks between Gibbs and Ryan. We’re expecting some real chemistry.”

NCIS kicks off its ninth season on Sept. 20 on CBS.

    Can’t wait for the new season to start!!

  • annie

    That’s very good news! Love NCIS!!!! Especially Tony, he’s so sexy!!!! Jaime is a good actress, and she’s one of the FEW actresses who has decided to age naturally the way God intended!!!

  • Hugh Jackson

    My favourite Jamie Lee Curtis movie is True Lies (1994) where she was at her sexiest. She was in her sexual prime back then and I was overwhelmed by her sexiness in that movie.

  • CollinLeon

    She’s really starting to look more like her father as she ages…

    • Brad

      I disagree. She looks like her mother.

      • Sue1

        I agree, Brad.

  • Michael

    Sweet looks to be fun season for us NICS fans Tony getting back to being Tony again instead of Ziva bitch and we get to see more of Kate sister and maybe even see a flashback of Jenny

  • Jason

    Activia! C’mon someone had to say it.

  • BigD

    LOVED her naked Boobs in Trading Places!!

  • Rebecca

    Freaky Friday Reunion was the first thing I thought off!!!!!

  • tomm

    Very glad JLC didn’t actaully retire from the business.

  • Summer Rain

    Good…most of the show’s audience could use some Activia….

  • Jay

    Yuck, LOVE NCIS, but NOT her, she won’t fit, she’ll ruin the show, just hope they don’t keep her as a regular, PLEASE! Plus, what a liar she is, she said years ago she was retiring from acting, had had it with it, and I thought, GOOD, don’t like her anyway, she’s gross to look at, but here she is. Guess her money must have been running out.

    • Barry

      And I’m SURE that all of the women in your life are top notch model types.

    • BLT

      What part of 2 episodes did you not understand? I’m sure she & her husband have no money worries, they are freakin loaded….isn’t he a member of british aristocracy? Plus, she is a great actress and a lot of her fans are happy to see her, especially paired with Mark Harmon. Oh, & she looks absolutely beautiful. What a refreshing change in Hollywood. But, then again, she is loaded as f!ck, only works if she wants to, so why destroy her face like so many of her contemporaries? Jay, your comment is crap, IMHO.

      • @ BLT

        Agree agree agree! She is beautiful!

      • pumpkinaptra2

        It’s nice to see you guys saying that JLC is beautiful, kind of seeing her from inside and not the outside fake visage that most actress’ her age have on. But then again, you can take off the rose colored glasses for a minute and see she really is hideous and I for one don’t think a few minor changes to her appearance would help. No plastic surgery but please, grow some hair! She’s been almost bald her whole life which I’m sure is easier to handle but come on, have some sense to see that she really looks better with a little longer hair to surround her harsh bone structure of her face. And please let the gray go-she could shave 10-15 years off the appearance with a little blonde dye. There’s nothing wrong with trying to look the best you can without going to the plastic surgery extreme. Honestly, when women go out into the regular world we do our hair and makeup to look as pleasing as possible, for our mates, for a search for a mate, or just for our own self worth. Take a few minutes a day Jamie and put some wrinkle cream on, grow some hair, color it and then a little makeup to make her face less severe would help big time! I sure as hell am gonna try my hardest to look my best for as long as I can, surely an actress with all her money and stature in the community can do the same!

ANyway nice to know you..I hope we can meet in person too one day hehe..Have a nice day and see in my blog.

  • Joni

    WOW! Fantastic news. She was great in ‘A Fish Called Wanda’ and ‘True Lies’ and in the remake ‘Freaky Friday’ Jamie Lee and Mark really clicked (they made the movie for me).

    She’s such a great actor that I’m sure she’ll fit in great with the ‘NCIS’ cast. Pauley has already Tweeted how excited she is about her joining them.

    • gemapet

      Agree, Joni! First thing I thought of was an earlier role playing a rookie cop in ‘Blue Steel.’

  • maw

    She is a definite mix of her mom and dad great attitude for an actress and definitely admire the cast of NCIS no one person is the center pro all are equal they far outshine reality shows thanks for some great TV

    • Beth

      Yes, a mix of mom and dad in more ways than one.

  • Michael

    that not true MAW from season 3 to six Ziva was the focus of NCIS

    • Jaidy

      That is SUCH a lie.

    • annie

      The entire cast shares the spotlight on NCIS! One of the reasons I love it so much!

  • Amy

    Interesting, considering in “SWAK,” Tony references Jamie Lee Curtis in “A Fish Called Wanda.”
