NCIS was making the scene in Los Angeles. The Paley Center for Media, named for television pioneer William S. Paley, welcomed the cast of NCIS for Paleyfest 2010. The Paley Center offers a venue for discussions on the social impact of television, radio and other platforms. Present on that March 1 evening were Mark Harmon (Leroy Jethro Gibbs), Michael Weatherly (Tony DiNozzo), Sean Murray (Tim McGee), Cota de Pablo (Ziva David), David McCallum (Dr. Donald 'Ducky' Mallard), Rocky Carroll (Director Leon Vance) and Brian Dietzen (Jimmy Palmer). Pauley Perrette (Abby Sciuto) had a previous commitment but was there in life-sized cardboard cutout form on the arm of Weatherly. To Read More Click Here .
Some NCIS fans are getting tired of Tiva. Others can't get enough. Regardless, the lingering issues and unanswered questions surrounding Tony and Ziva keep piling up. Will this season offer any resolution? As far as what happened between them in Paris earlier this year, Michael Weatherly (Tony) thinks he has the answer ... or lack thereof. Confused yet? Is that the point? 'The truth of what happened is probably something that can be discovered inside the episode itself,' Weatherly tells EW, semi-cryptically. 'If you really listen to what they say, I think that it's pretty clear what happened: Nothing.'' To Read More Click Here .
NCIS fans are still freaking out over exec producer Shane Brennan's cryptic tease last week that Gibbs will be forced to make a 'life-changing decision' this May 'that will impact every member of the team.' In fact, the tantalizing spoiler left some wondering - crazy talk alert! - if Mark Harmon's days are numbered. 'I don't think [that's the case] but I don't know for sure,' Harmon told us last night prior to the PaleyFest '10 event honoring NCIS. 'I'm still having a blast doing the show. That hasn't changed since Day 1. I have no plans to leave. I have a contract with significant more time on it. But that may not stop the producers from getting rid of me if they think that best serves the story or the show. But I have no plans to take myself out of the game.' To Read More Click Here .
With appearances by Tony DiNozzo's father and Jethro Gibbs' former mother-in-law among others, this season's NCIS has been about the back stories and personal lives of NCIS team members. "We've all had those opportunities on the show to dig more deeply into the characters and I think it's deserving," star Mark Harmon (Gibbs) said at the Paley Center for Media event about the series Monday night. "I think the fans deserve it." On Tuesday's episode (at 8/7c on CBS) the attention will turn to Gibbs when former mother-in-law Joann, played by Gena Rowlands, becomes involved in the team's latest case. "What has been a recurring theme, at least this season, has been the focus on family and back story," said Rocky Carroll (Leon Vance). "That's been a central theme and I think it's going to continue. You're going to see more people out of the private lives of these characters." The episode also marks the return of legal eagle and Gibbs' latest possible love interest, Allison Hart (Rena Sofer). But despite their on-screen chemistry, as well as her scheduled return for several episodes in May, Harmon said fans shouldn't necessarily anticipate a love connection. "I guarantee it's not going where people think its going," Harmon said. "I don't think [Sofer] knows where it's going any more than I do." To Read More Click here .

You NCIS fans must be sick and tired of Rena Sofer news, but from the looks of things she's not going anywhere - at least for the mean time. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Sofer's Mr. Gibbs-calling feisty lawyer character will not only be making a return on Tuesday's episode "Mother's Day" she will be back for "multiple episodes" in May. Is that the sound of groaning? It gets worse. Adds NCIS executive producer Shane Brennan, M. Allison Hart will "set in motion a chain of events that forces Gibbs (Mark Harmon) to make a life-changing decision," a decision which he adds "will impact every member of his team." This bit of information suspiciously sounds connected to the little hints that Brennan gave previously regarding the much-anticipated NCIS finale, where he said elements of which have already been included in past episodes this season. He added then: "The audience has already seen some of the elements - we've already started the finale in a way. You won't see it in every episode, but we'll tease it out. It'll be surprising, and this year it's going to be controversial." Could it be a romantic decision for Gibbs, despite the apparent unpopularity of Sofer's Attorney Hart? NCIS returns Tuesday with an episode where Gibbs' former mother-in-law becomes a witness in a murder investigation. Source Here
So far, speculation regarding the NCIS Season 7 finale this May has been limited to Rena Sofer's likely return, and executive producer Shane Brennan's cryptic statements that the events of the upcoming season-ender have already been set in motion ... somehow. Well, today Entertainment Weekly says Sofer's feisty lawyer character, Allison Hart - who returns in Tuesday's episode, "Mother's Day" - will be back for multiple episodes in May. That's the first concrete confirmation we've read to that effect. As for what it entails? The no-nonsense attorney will Ã¢â¬Åset in motion a chain of events that forces Gibbs (Mark Harmon) to make a life-changing decision,'' Brennan says. This isn't just some run-of-the-mill life-changing decision, either, nor will it impact Gibbs alone. Brennan reveals what he does will impact every member of his team. Source here
Tony. McGee. Playboy centerfolds. These things don't often mix on NCIS, but that's about to change come March 16, when Shanna Moakler guest stars on the hit series. The former Miss USA will be playing the girlfriend of a Navy diver who dies under mysterious circumstances. Shanna is also known for a stint on Dancing with the Stars. That and being married to (and separated from, and back together with, and divorced from, and fighting via MySpace with) Travis Barker of Blink-182 fame. She's cute. In somewhat more important NCIS guest starring news, Rena Sofer will definitely appear in multiple episodes beyond March 2 as no-nonsense lawyer M. Allison Hart. What do you think she and Gibbs have going on? Source Here
It's still a good three months or so before the NCIS season 7 finale, but already fans like to know what's in store for their favorite show when things come to a close in May. And for good reason, since last year's season finale packed a mean punch, the repercussions of which we can still feel up to the present. This, of course, is just a testament to NCIS' formula-defying season finales. In any case, NCIS Executive Producer Shane Brennan tells Entertainment Weekly that we can at least rule out one thing from the upcoming season finale: no Tiva-centricity. Last season's finale saw Ziva captured by terrorists and brought to Somalia following her homecoming to Israel (this, after her house was blown to bits, rough day) and Gibbs leaving her there. This lead to a great kind of rescue, but not before truth serum and really scary moments, with Gibbs just waiting in the wing to take a sniper shot at Saleem. Brennan adds to TV Guide that, like all season finales in the past, elements of this upcoming one have already been included in past episodes this season. "I'm a great believer in planning it out and knowing where we're going to land," he adds. "The audience has already seen some of the elements -- we've already started the finale in a way. You won't see it in every episode, but we'll tease it out. It'll be surprising, and this year it's going to be controversial." Source Here
There's more details coming out about Gena Rowlands' upcoming guest turn on 'NCIS,' thanks to a report from TV Guide soap expert Michael Logan. When Rowlands appears on 'NCIS' March 2 as Gibbs' former mother-in-law, Joann, the show will flashback to a time when Joann and Jethro were much younger. The younger Gibbs will be played by Sean Harmon, Mark's own son, and the younger version of Joann will be portrayed by 'Days of Our Lives'' Emmy-winner Leann Hunley. Hunley (pictured), who plays Anna DiMera on 'Days of Our Lives,' told Logan that she was thrilled to play Joann in flashback, especially because of her admiration for Rowlands. "When I first saw her back in the '70s in 'A Woman Under the Influence,' I thought, 'That woman looks like me! She has my eyes!'" Hunley told Logan. To Read more Click Here .
