    Hope she can still appear as Zoe Morgan on P.O.I occasionally. Awesome character.

  2. Ant says:

    Nice, but they need to dump Lucas Black

  3. Keith says:

    I was going to suggest adding her husband Jason O’Mara to the cast ,but his shows usually last one season

  4. Dan says:

    She’ll always be Palmer Cortland’s niece Laney on “All My Children” to me!

  5. L says:

    Yay! ive loved her since All My Children! So happy for her and a good talent.

  6. L says:

    I will actually watch this now!

  7. Andrew Hass says:

    I think it’s nice casting with Paige Turco and it could be interesting having the lead character have a wife.Plus being recurring means the actress can do other stuff too.

  8. Lillian says:

    Paige Turco was on American Gothic, along with Lucas Black.

  9. Rob says:

    Paige is a very underrated actress, and I am certain she’ll spark off Scott.

  10. JBC says:

    Great addition to the cast. Loved her on POI.. guess Reese needs a new love interest, and NOT SHAW!!

  11. DavidSask says:

    Does this mean Paige is not being kept on The 100 if it does well as series?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      NCIS is “second position,” meaning that if THE 100 gets renewed (and I hope it does), the CW show is her priority.

    • Aimee says:

      Isn’t CBS one of the parent companies of the CW? Even if The 100 does well I think CBS/CW would be OK with guest appearances on the NCIS show.

  12. BJ says:

    ooh! I like it!

  13. Hege says:

    I really hope it will be a good show because this cast is so good! Looking forward to this!

  14. Aimee says:

    She sure is busy lately (and deservedly so). I only hope she can still pop up on POI from time to time.

  15. Andrea says:

    Love her on POI and will undoubtedly love her on the NCIS spin-off!

  16. John NYC says:

    Like her well enough on POI but for a larger role? Less sure.

    As more and more casting is announced I’m finding my interest getting lower and lower.

    I’ll give it a chance, like I did NCIS: L.A. which turned out to beat the mothership for a couple of years in my priority of viewing… so the proof will be in the tasting as always.

    Why not cast Scott Bakula’s actual wife?
