‘NCIS’ Casts Wilmer Valderrama as Series Regular for Season 14

NCIS” has added Wilmer Valderrama as a series regular for season 14.

Valderrama will play a once-grounded NCIS field agent who accepted a deep cover assignment years ago and never resurfaced. Many agents don’t know he’s still on the job or that he’s even alive. Now, he’s back and his dedication to job and country has left him an unpredictable, charismatic loose cannon.

Wilmer Valderrama will be able to flex his dramatic, physical and comedic talents in this classic ‘NCIS’ role,” said executive producer Gary Glasberg. “Fans are going to see him like they’ve never seen him before. This is going to be fun. We’re thrilled he’s coming aboard.”

The hit series said goodbye to series regular Michael Weatherly in the season 13 finale. Weatherly’s Tony DiNozzo had been with the show since its series premiere.

Valderrama most recently appeared in a recurring role on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” His additional television credits include his breakout role on “That ’70s Show,” “Minority Report,” “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” and “Awake.” His film credits include indie dramas “To Whom It May Concern,” from French director Manu Boyer, and “The Adderall Diaries,” opposite Amber Heard and James Franco, which premiered at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, as well as “Larry Crowne,” “From Prada to Nada,” “Fast Food Nation” and “The Dry Land.”

“NCIS” stars Mark Harmon, Pauley Perrette, Sean Murray, Rocky Carroll, Emily Wickersham, Brian Dietzen and David McCallum. The long-running procedural is produced by Belisarius Productions in association with CBS Television Studios.
