CBS


NCIS: Mexico?
by William Keck April 26, 2010 08:36 AM EST


CSI begat two smash spin-offs, so why not another NCIS? Though CBS has no current plans to launch a third Naval team, the hugely popular Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette) will headline a Mexican adventure during May sweeps. The Abby action begins May 4, when the goth lab rat meets a handsome stranger named Alejandro Rivera (seaQuest DSV’s Marco Sanchez), a Mexican justice-department official in D.C. on state business. “Abby thinks he’s really cute,” says Pauley.

Then on May 11, Alejandro invites Abby down to Mexico to speak to forensic students—which provides Vance (Rocky Carroll) with a golden opportunity. “Vance decides to take a peek into Gibbs’ (Mark Harmon) file to learn about his past,” teases Rocky. What he discovers provokes him to send Abby’s ex, Agent McGee (Sean Murray), south of the border with her for protection. But, Rocky adds, “Vance has an ulterior motive.”

Not surprisingly, McGee is bothered by Abby’s new crush. “Abby and McGee still love each other very much and if there’s ever another guy around, he’s threatened,” says Pauley. Even so, the former lovers end up sharing a bed in a Mexican motel, which Pauley says, “is awkward, especially for McGee.” (In typical NCIS style, we won’t know what exactly happens once the lights go off.)

But the big Mexico mystery involves a bag of evidence (containing shattered glass, grass and soil samples) that Abby brings back to D.C. The contents lead to a confrontation with Gibbs in the May 18 episode, which also reveals the murder of a former agent we haven’t seen in some time. “It sends shock waves,” Rocky says. “We try to put a stop to it before it happens again.”

Confused by all these twists? “You’ll see why all these things are important,” says Pauley, hinting at a bombshell in the May 25 season
finale that sends Gibbs to Mexico and forever changes Abby’s life. “Pay attention to everything! I just hope Abby survives emotionally.”

Exclusive: NCIS Roundtable Bonus!
by Chris Willman April 21, 2010 02:57 PM EST


If you couldn’t get enough of the men of NCIS talking amongst themselves in our cover story this week, here’s more where that came from. In these lively bonus outtakes from TV Guide Magazine’s roundtable interview, NCIS’ deeply sexy six discuss subjects like: being mistaken by fans for their characters… how old is too old to drive 100 mph… and whether the series is highly topical or secretly set in the 1990s.

MURRAY: First jack deals!

WEATHERLY: Ante up!

TV GUIDE: The photo shoot you just did is probably a pretty good emulation of how you guys usually spend your weekends.

MURRAY: Yeah, hang in the Hollywood Hills, doing photo shoots. No one’s actually running the photos—we’re just doing it amongst ourselves.

DIETZEN: We always pick an era. Today just happened to be the Rat Pack era.

TV GUIDE: Most of you have been playing these characters for a lot of seasons. This may be a stretch, but are there ever moments where, having been in character for so long, you find yourself off-camera doing or saying something that seems more like your character than what you might have done or said if you’d never taken on these roles?

McCALLUM: I talk about death a lot more when I’m at home.

HARMON: But you live alone! (laughter)

McCALLUM: Touché.

CARROLL: I have found myself running a federal agency sometimes.

WEATHERLY: Sometimes you will meet people in an airport or a mall or wherever you are—parking lot—and they will expect that you are of course the way that they have seen you.

McCALLUM: Aren’t you?

WEATHERLY: This may be why my wife doesn’t like the character so much. Because I will jump right into character. I mean, I don’t have any problem just going DiNozzo on people. And then they’ll leave, and my wife will turn to me and say, “Do you HAVE to do that?” (laughter) “Can’t you just let them meet Michael?” But I think there’s a switch, you know. I don’t know about anybody else. I know that when I get to work, I get out of my car in the morning and walk to whatever stage or location we’re at, ready to go, and I’ve turned a corner where I’m seeing everything from that character’s perspective.

And we’re at the end of our term here, the 10-month term. I think everybody’s looking at this hiatus coming up and saying, okay, we recharge our batteries. Because I think it’s a lot of (commitment). Especially for Mark, I think more than anyone else. Mark carries this show with an amazing, quiet grace. Because you don’t know how many people have questions all day long, from the moment Mark gets there to the moment that episode is done. I would say 10,000 questions. And he’s still there every day, doing that thing. And we all I think look to him as our sort of spirit guide in how to handle it.

McCALLUM: I like our association with the Navy and the Marine Corps, too... During the hiatus I’m going to be able to go back to Washington, and I have a visit planned to [the real] NCIS.

CARROLL: So am I. I’m planning to go to NCIS, too.

McCALLUM: And I’m going to meet again with now-Captain Mallak, who is the chief pathologist of the army. That’s all set up. So we keep that side of it going as well during the hiatus.

MURRAY: Now, David, remember in year 2 when we went to FLETC, the federal law enforcement training center in Brunswick, Georgia? We were up in the building being escorted around to see some of these things, and you had just gone through a door in front of me. And I see a woman just screaming down the hall, running as fast as she can. She practically tackles me, and goes “Was that David McCallum that just walked through the door?” and I went “Uh, yeah,” and she’s like “All right”… [He makes a motion like he’s being violently tossed aside.].

McCALLUM: And she came rushing up to me and she said, “I never knew!” I said, “Never knew what?” “That you guys really are special agents!” She thought we were there being trained.

CARROLL: It kind of puts it all in perspective.

McCALLUM: They took me out in a police car on the high speed driving course…

MURRAY: Weren’t those fun?

McCALLUM: …and you’re strapped in, and we go off a bend like this at 100 mph, and I’ve never felt my stomach or my heart go down and my stomach come up like that.

MURRAY: They’ve got this thing that’s like the size of a football field that’s got little sprinklers that constantly put a little level of water, so we’re hydroplaning all over the place. I remember I had a lot of fun.

McCALLUM: And I was saying to myself, if they knew how old I was, they wouldn’t let me do this. (laughter}

WEATHERLY: Was that on the 405?

CARROLL: You know, I always assume—and sometimes it’s true and sometimes it’s not—that people know that we’re professional actors.

MURRAY: Yeahhhh…. They don’t know.

McCALLUM: They think we’re buddies, because we’re in their living room.

MURRAY: They’ve spent hours with you personally.

CARROLL: But I’m not the director of a federal agency, and I have a lot more fun than that guy [Director Vance] does, and they usually pick up on that pretty quickly. But I call it the Halloween aspect. You know that one day out of the year when you dress up and play make believe? That’s what I do for a living! And whatever you do or you behave on that Halloween day or at the office Christmas party, now, if somebody holds that to you for the rest of the year, you’re like “Dude, I was dressed up, I was playing, it was Halloween, I was at the party. I can’t be accountable for that behavior every day!” So for me, when people approach me, it’s like, “No, that was the Halloween party I was at.”

McCALLUM: I shall never think of my career as anything else but a Halloween party from now on!

TV GUIDE: Rocky, from my very outside perspective, you seem like the one of these six guys who is least like your character. You’re outgoing and friendly…

CARROLL: But I’ll tell you something that’s really funny. Of all the characters I ever played, it’s the most fun I’ve ever had playing a character. People will be, how can that be? Harmon says, “You love the s--- out of playing this character.” Excuse me. “You love playing this character.” [laughter] If I were watching this show, I’d go “Yeah, I’d like to be that guy.” Because to wield that kind of power, it’s fun.

WEATHERLY: And you are the master of the slow clap. [He does an imitation of a stoic Director Vance clapping about once every two seconds.] That was Rocky Carroll at his all-time best.

CARROLL: That sounds like something you pick up in Tijuana, the slow clap.

WEATHERLY: That takes yeaaaars of experience… It was a big season finale where you really stepped into the [Director Vance] shoes. We got those pages, and the whole crew was watching. We’re rolling, and Rocky starts reassigning everybody. And everyone got frightened [thinking the show was ending]. You had the dolly grip going, “I just bought a boat! I haven’t paid off my house yet. What do you mean?” [laughter]

PostSubject: Trouble Brewoung Behind the Scenes of 'NCIS'   Fri Apr 30, 2010 7:15 am

'NCIS' Cast in Contract Dispute



Posted Apr 29th 2010 10:30AM by Allison Waldman
Filed under: OpEd, Celebrities, NCIS, Casting, Reality-Free



Trouble may be afoot behind the scenes of CBS' ratings juggernaut 'NCIS.'

According to Deadline, four of its stars -- Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, David McCallum and Sean Murray -- are still not signed beyond the end of this season, leaving the future of the cast in limbo.
According to the report, all four have been given "low-ball" offers to re-sign with the show, which is currently in its seventh season on CBS. At least two of the four are making far less than $100,000 per episode, which is already on the low-end for a network show.

Just how much each star is making per-episode is unknown.

If contract negotiations fall through, the show would presumably be in for a major shift in storyline, considering how integral their characters -- Weatherly and Perrette's in particular -- play into the show. Even worse: No word yet on how their stories would be wrapped up. (And here we thought 'Lost' fans had issues.)

In the meantime, Deadline did have some good news to report: Mark Harmon, Rocky Carroll and Cote de Pablo are expected to return. According to the report, de Pablo -- whose contract ends after next season -- was approached with a similar low-ball extension.

How things will get settled remains to be seen, but fans shouldn't worry too much, as contract disputes have factored into many long-running series, from 'Friends' to, more recently, 'Law & Order: SVU.' CBS in particular had a hiccup in 2004 amidst contract negotiations with 'CSI' co-stars Jorja Fox and George Eads. The pair failed to show up to the set one day, which led to them being temporarily fired. Fox and Eads were later re-hired eight days later.
