On NCIS, we know that Gibbs (Mark Harmon) is made of pretty strong stuff, but will the arrival of his mother-in-law bring him pain?
Entertainment Weekly reports that NCIS has cast three-time Emmy winner Gena Rowlands for the potentially recurring role of Joanna, Gibbs' "upscale" mother-in-law who is reportedly bringing him a slightly unwanted blast from the past. The mother of one of his ex-wives will shed light on "what happened in his past."
Rowlands, 79, was recently on 2004's The Notebook, where she bagged a Satellite award for best supporting actress. With several Oscar, Golden Globes, and Emmy nods, she won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in 1987's The Betty Ford Story,1991's Face of a Stranger, and 2003's Hysterical Blindness.
Watch out for Gibb's mother-in-law on NCIS in March.
