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

    • Person of interest should have made her a regular and treat her like they treat Amy Acker/Root: show her when they need her.

  • Nice, but they need to dump Lucas Black

    • He doesn’t fit the “hot” role for me, but I’ll give him a chance anyway.

    • I believe that was said about Chris O’Donnell too. Give it a chance – you just never know.

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

    • I found Jason O’Mara’s shows thoroughly entertaining. They were big hits in our household.

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

  • 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.

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

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

  • Love her!

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

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

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

    • 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.

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

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

  • Nice!

    Comment by Lorie – February 19, 2014 05:09 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Love her on POI and will undoubtedly love her on the NCIS spin-off!

    Comment by Andrea – February 19, 2014 07:50 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 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?
