NCIS Investigates Gibbs' Past; Ralph Waite Guest-Stars
This season, NCIS will do something it has rarely done: Tell us a little something about Leroy Jethro's background.
TVGuide.com has learned exclusively that in the Oct. 14 episode, when a pair of Marines are ambushed, the NCIS team's investigation leads them to no less than Gibbs' hometown. There, viewers will meet Gibbs' father -- played by guest-star Ralph Waite (The Waltons, Cool Hand Luke) -- as well as learn secrets about the enigmatic special agent.
"Taking Gibbs [played by Mark Harmon] back to his roots was something we've talked about doing for some time," executive producer Shane Brennan tells us. "It was an easy creative decision to make, but a challenging story to tell."
The writers of the hit CBS drama, of course, met the challenge, and are excited to serve up a precious glimpse into their lead character's origins. "The episode is a little piece of magic, with revelations about how Gibbs grew into the man we all admire and respect," says Brennan. "It is a funny, revealing and emotionally powerful story that I think fans of the show will talk about for the rest of the season. Prepare to get choked up."
I thought it was a really substantial role for him. It's almost like they wrote the show around him. He looked and sounded great. If you watched closely you could even see a few of those old John Walton facial expressions and mannerisms. I hope it's a recurring role, at least from time to time.
