'NCIS: LA' books Michelle Trachtenberg for action-packed holiday episode

Michelle Trachtenberg is visiting the gang at NCIS: LA.

EW has learned that the Gossip Girl alum, who recently appeared in Killing Kennedy, will guest star in an action-packed holiday episode set to air Dec. 17 on CBS. She will play a character named Lily, a smart and witty environmentalist/ private chef who is the victim of a home invasion that “turns her life upside down,” according to a casting description.

“We’re very excited to have Michelle guest on the show,” said exec producer Shane Brennan in a statement. “It’s a very intense episode which pairs Michelle with Callen and Sam, in what is probably one of our biggest action shows so far this season.” Which is saying a lot.

NCIS: LA continues to perform solidly on its Tuesday night time slot following mothership NCIS. It’s most recent episode scored more than 14 million total viewers and a 2.4 rating in the coveted 18-49 demo.

'NCIS: LA' boss previews Callen-centric 100th episode -- VIDEO

Tuesday’s NCIS: Los Angeles episode has been nearly 75 episodes in the making.

“Let me just say, this is the best work Chris O’Donnell has ever done on the series,” executive producer Shane Brennan says of the episode, which marks the series’ 100th. “I knew I wanted to do this episode since episode 25, and I had to wait patiently to do it. … Everything you’ve learned about Callen has been set up to pay off this episode.”

In the episode, airing Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET, it has been teased that Callen will come face-to-face with a man who claims to be his father. In fact, it happens in the first minute of the show. (Watch a clip below!) And the episode then travels 8 hours back in time to explain how they got there, culminating in a big finish. “The last three minutes of the episode, Chris is just astonishing,” says Brennan. “It’s Chris, by himself, and he says these two words … it’s an amazing sequence.”

But with 100 episodes down, how many more does Brennan think NCIS: LA has left? “This show will easily reach its 200th milestone if we continue with this enthusiasm and freshness,” he says.

'NCIS,' 'Supernatural,' 'NCIS: LA,' 'Sons of Anarchy': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Howdy, Roomies!

It’s that time of the week again. Excited? You should be! I am. I’ve also had a lot of caffeine this week while covering the Television Critics Association press tour with my colleagues, so … this should be interesting.

As always, send your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com.

‘NCIS’ BOSS: ‘EVERYONE HAS TO WATCH THE FIRST TWO EPISODES’
I hear ya, NCIS fans. The departure of Cote de Pablo is an unfortunate turn of events, to say the least. NCIS EP Gary Glasberg was “saddened” by the situation, too, telling me earlier this week during CBS’ annual bash for television critics that “it’s the last thing we planned on.” That said, he promised, “At the end of the day, I’m really happy with what we came up with. Everyone has to watch the first two episodes.”

Why? Well, for one, he teased, the episodes were completely reworked in order to accommodate this curve ball. “I literally had to lock myself away and everything I was planning on had to be blown out and I had to start all over again,” he says of the news, which came after plans for the season had already begun. “Again, it’s not what we had hoped for. This family — this NCIS family that exists between [the characters] — is so special and so unique, and this was Cote’s decision and we have to respect that … but some really fantastic work is going to come out of what occurred. We have some really terrific stuff planned for the year.”

So what ARE those plans? For one, Ziva will be “prominent” in the second episode of the season and “it’s a really touching, emotional story and I promise the viewers will not be disappointed — especially the Tiva fans, as we say. I hope it’s everything they want it to be.”

He adds: “I want some of it to be a surprise, but I think people will be pleased at the end of the day with where it’s left both emotionally and psychologically — and not only for Tony, but Gibbs, Abby, and everybody. That’s a big part of what I was taking into consideration — really understanding how the people and the fans are so connected to our characters. You really have to honor that.”

Who’s already crying?

'NCIS: LA' season-finale promo teases 'massive' Kensi-Deeks moment, possible death -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

This season’s NCIS: LA finale is “without a doubt the darkest season-finale we’ve ever done on the show,” according to executive producer Shane Brennan. And the proof is in the promo.

EW has your exclusive first look at the episode, which finds the team going to new lengths to recover the stolen nuclear weapons they’ve been tracking. The result? An episode that will make for some juicy team drama and could leave at least one life in jeopardy. “It’s big in many, many ways,” Brennan previews.

In the video below, we get a taste of exactly what Brennan means. READ FULL STORY

'Arrow,' 'Big Bang Theory,' 'Supernatural,' 'NCIS: LA': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Good day, Roomies!

Hope the world is treating you well. I certainly can’t complain. In the last week since we’ve touched base, I’m settled into my new L.A.-based digs, mourned the loss of my access to solid public transportation and purchased a car, and started a Fund the Veronica Mars movie piggy bank. Very busy, as you can see. But that brings me to the highlight of my week: Giving y’all scoop on the cool stuff coming up on your favorite shows.

Check out this week’s offerings below, and if you have a question, don’t hesitate to ask! SpoilerRoom@ew.com or on Twitter: @EWSandraG.

‘ARROW’ FINALE DISH

How great was Arrow’s Paley panel this weekend? (If you missed it, you suck. Kidding! You can watch it here.) But before the event, Spoiler Room hit the red carpet for some scoop on the finale that executive producer Marc Guggenheim says will find the conflict between Arrow/Oliver (Stephen Amell) and John Barrowman’s Merlyn coming to a big climax.

Chris O'Donnell previews his 'NCIS: LA' directorial debut

Why did Chris O’Donnell take the NCIS: LA cast and crew to a Russian bathhouse?

For starters, it was for work — not leisure. And in fact, the trip to the bathhouse was part of some of the hardest days O’Donnell has ever put in during his time at NCIS: LA.

Tonight’s episode, titled “Wanted,” marks O’Donnell’s directorial debut, and the episode took the actor/director and the show’s hardworking crew to a number of “fun” locations — Russian bathhouse included. “It was fun to have some input on the locations and where we shot,” O’Donnell tells EW. “We scouted several [bathhouses]; there some locations I just couldn’t put the crew through. There are some pretty shady bathhouses in Los Angeles.”

It all worked out in the end, though, and the result is an intense Sam-centric episode that revisits one of the season’s major arcs. O’Donnell expands in our on-camera interview, which you can watch below.

John Corbett to star in 'NCIS: LA' spinoff

John Corbett is the new NCIS franchise star.

The United States of Tara actor has landed a lead role in CBS’ NCIS: LA spinoff. He’ll play one of a small mobile team of “Red Team” agents who are forced to live and work together as they crisscross the country solving crimes.

Corbett will play Roy Quaid, a former NCIS Special Agent forced to retire from active service, Roy now works as an Analyst. While no longer an active agent, Roy is the most experienced investigator working for Red Team, a fact that’s not lost on any of the other agents.

The pilot episode will air as a special NCIS: LA episode later this season (yes, it’s a spinoff of a spinoff of a spinoff!). Corbett’s breakout role was on another CBS hit series, 1990’s Northern Exposure, and he recently had an arc on NBC’s Parenthood. He also starred in the 2003 FX series Lucky. If greenlit to series, this could practically give Corbett a TV gig for life given the durability of the hit franchise (but no pressure!).

What do you think? Does Corbett have what it takes to be the next Jethro Gibbs? Or at least the next Agent Callen?

'NCIS: LA' scoop: Peter Cambor to return -- EXCLUSIVE

Nate’s back!

EW has learned exclusively that Peter Cambor, who plays operational psychologist Nate Getz on NCIS: LA, is set to return as a guest star for a February episode that will take him undercover with Hetty (Linda Hunt).

“This episode is a must-see for fans of both Nate and Hetty,” executive producer Shane Brennan says. “Not only do we get to have Nate guest in the episode, but we get to see him go undercover with Hetty. It’s one of the most memorable, funny undercover operations we’ve done on the series.”

Cambor, who currently appears on the TBS series Wedding Band, was a series regular on NCIS: LA‘s first season and has appeared on the show a number of times since then as a guest star.

'NCIS: LA' preview: Eric Christian Olsen and boss tease big 'reveal' in two-part episode

Deeks might find himself in the middle of a pretty hilarious situation in tonight’s episode of NCIS: LA. But for the team as a whole, the situation has never been more serious.

The episode finds Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen (Chris O’Donnell) investigating a possible conspiracy that led to the death of a CIA agent who once worked with Sam. In the process, much is unraveled about Sam’s so-far enigmatic past. “I don’t think we’ve ever revealed this much about an individual character in an episode before,” says executive producer Shane Brennan.

Meanwhile, Deeks (Olsen) must go undercover at a dog show to uncover further information about the case. “So, of course, the worst job in the world, they send Deeks to follow this lead and that means doing a dog show with a poodle,” jokes Olsen.

Light as the moment might be, however, it’s also incredibly necessary to the case, and keeping that in mind, Olsen says he never minds bringing lighter moments to otherwise intense episodes. “If it doesn’t serve purpose to the story or the larger picture, then there’s no weight to it. Deeks is forced to do something he doesn’t want to do, but it’s necessary to see whats going on behind the scenes [at the dog show]. And I think that’s where the comedy comes from — that kind of reluctance but knowing it’s part of his job.”

The end of the first episode will set up “the stakes” of what the team is facing, according to Brennan, and part two of the storyline, which is scheduled to air the following week, will deliver a “revelation that no one will see coming.” “It could be seen by some people at home as an uncomfortable episode to watch because of what Sam Hannah is involved in,” he warns.

But uncomfortable or not, Olsen says that’s the fun of the show. “The beauty about these characters is that as much as we think we know what they are, they have this whole life that we really don’t go into. When we do, so many more things make sense — like what makes this character tick and why they are the way they are.”
