“NCIS: Hawai’i” has added Noah Mills to the cast, Variety has learned exclusively.
Mills joins previously announced series lead Vanessa Lachey and fellow cast members Yasmine Al-Bustami and Jason Antoon. In the show, the first female Special Agent in Charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor (Lachey) and her team balance duty to family and country, investigating high-stakes crimes involving military personnel, national security and the mysteries of the island itself.
Mills will play Jesse, a former big city homicide detective who’s settled in a new life in Hawai‘i. An expert interrogator with knack for good old fashioned police work, but Jesse’s also a devoted family man who runs 4-H camping trips for his kid. He knows every nook and cranny of the island’s hiking trails. He’s worked with Tennant (Lachey) the longest and is her lieutenant and sometimes confidant.
Mills most recently appeared in the Disney Plus series “The Falcon and the Winter Solider.” He is also known for his roles on shows like “The Enemy Within,” “The Baker and the Beauty,” “The Brave,” and “2 Broke Girls.” He has also appeared in featured such as “Sex in the City 2.” As a model, he has worked with the likes of Tom Ford, Dolce and Gabana, and Giorgio Armani.
He is repped by Gersh and Luber Roklin Entertainment.
