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 us. "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."

Big things are in store for the NCIS crew during November sweeps. Chief among them is the fact that one of the NCIS team will be shot in an upcoming two-part episode on November 16 and 23. It's been confirmed by Ausiello that Timothy McGee will not be the victim of the shooting (which will actually occur when a team member is injured by an explosion, not a gun). That leaves Ziva, Tony and Vance in the running as potential victims. To Read More Click Here.
Pauley Perrette's lab rate Abby has been let loose in the NCIS squad room. In a scene she's shooting for a big two-part episode airing November 16 and 23, she's trying to play pin the tail on the bomber. Pointing to a video of a suspect playing on a computer screen, she blurts out to Sean Murray's McGee, "He just confessed he knew how to make the murder weapon! I mean, how many people know how to make a homemade Claymore mine?" "In this room?" asks McGee. A couple of visiting Israeli agents raise their hands. So does Cote de Pablo, as NCIS team member Ziva David. Then, sheepishly, so does Abby herself. "OK, fine," she mutters, reluctantly withdrawing her point. To Read More Click Here.
NCIS is off next week after last night's episode, but when it returns in November, it will do so with a vengeance in time for fall sweeps, according to Entertainment Weekly. Around the middle of next month, a main character is going to have a nasty, potentially lethal run-in with a deadly weapon - a development that opens many other doors. "The shocking shooting opens a door to the past," executive producer Shane Brennan says, "[and] explains a relationship which has kept fans guessing for several seasons." The NCIS team member in question is either Tony, McGee, Vance or Ziva. It's one of those four, meaning Ducky, Abby and Gibbs are off the hook. But the rest is a mystery. Who gets shot is very much unclear, but it's very likely that Vance and Eli David are heavily involved in the story line. Beyond that, your guesses are as good as ours. To Read More Click Here.

To loosely paraphrase that old Limp Bizkit song: "I watched it for the squeaky." Squeaky Tony DiNozzo, that is, who turned out to be allergic to the suburbs in NCIS ' "Dead Air" episode. Some fans worry that the character has gotten too silly, and these folks may have been mortified, not mollified, that DiNozzo spent much of the hour speaking in a scratchy-helium voice. Not everyone probably cottoned to the idea of hearing Tony, interrogating a terrorism suspect, half-shout "You want to spend the rest of your life in prison? Fine by me!" in a Mickey-Mouse-meets-Rod-Stewart voice. So you'll have to forgive those of us who couldn't stifle a laugh. There's always been a truism about how rare it is to find a beautiful woman who can pull off comedy, and this is a good moment to point out how equally unusual it is to find a beautiful man who'll go as wonderfully far out on the limb of ridiculousness as Michael Weatherly will. And "Dead Air" was an episode in which the comic distractions from the central plot were particularly welcome. The particulars of Christopher J. Waild's teleplay couldn't have been any more tightly scripted, but there was no getting away from the fact that the premise itself was one of the most preposterous ones of late. The navy commander who was gunned down in the opening scene was basically a mere bystander who happened to be with the real target at the wrong time, and NCIS isn't at its best when its token dead sailors turn out to be completely incidental to a non-military-related plot. Also, if the shock-talk DJ who was the real target was broadcasting on 86.9 FM, he was broadcasting directly to Japan, which suggests a much deeper conspiracy than the team uncovered. And the less said about the unexplosiveness of the explosive climax, the better. Guest star George Newbern, a right-wing domestic would-be terrorist, was willing to pay $300,000 to buy a trigger for a bomb that ultimately does blow up and can't even incinerate a five-square-yard picnic area? I've seen bigger explosions when I accidentally poured too much lighter fluid on the coals. To Read More Click Here.
