In an era where the airwaves are dominated by reality TV, it is rare for a scripted show to have the number one rating spot. Well, CBS's crime drama NCIS has climbed to the top spot. To make it even better, veteran actor Robert Wagner is set to guest on this week's episode as Anthony DiNozzo's estranged father. Several media sources have been writing articles about this appearance; check out this one from the NY Post and from Entertainment Weekly.
This news has fans very excited. First, Wagner is a great actor and it is very exciting to see him play Tony's dad. The two actors do have a bit of history. Michael Weatherly portrayed Wagner in the 2004 TV movie The Mystery of Natalie Wood. Weatherly does have an uncanny resemblance to Wagner, affectionately called "RJ: by the cast.
I am definitely looking forward to seeing tonight's episode. NCIS has so many attractive men on set, it might be hard to concentrate on the plot. And for those of you wondering, there is no family relation to Robert Wagner. (I wish!) Check out a preview of tomorrow night's episode below. Be sure to tune in tomorrow night at 8 pm. on CBS.
