This 'NCIS' Alum Is Joining 'NCIS: L.A.' Soon!
A former NCIS cast member joining NCIS: L.A.? We've seen that before, but it's still quite exciting. Scottie Thompson is headed to Los Angeles soon, but it will be in a very different role this time around!
There will be another great addition to the NCIS: L.A. cast for a upcoming springtime episode. NCIS alum Scottie Thompson will join "Hetty" (Linda Hunt) and "Callen" (Chris O'Donnell) in season 11, TVLine reports.
And Thompson is not new to the vast NCIS multiverse either. Between 2006 and 2016, the 38-year-old actress used to have a recurring role on NCIS as "Jeanne Benoit", a doctor/arms dealer and former girlfriend of "Tony DiNozzo" (Michael Weatherly).
