This Thanksgiving on CBS’ NCIS, the introduction of Special Agent Ellie Bishop’s husband will be on the menu.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Battlestar Galactica alum Jamie Bamber will appear in a November episode of TV’s most watched drama as the oft-mentioned, yet-to-be-seen NSA attorney Jake Malloy.
“We’ve waited a long time to meet Bishop’s husband, and we’ve found him in Jamie Bamber,” says NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg. “Jamie is a charming, talented actor, and we’re thrilled to have him on-board for this Thanksgiving episode and some exciting surprises to come.”
In addition to his run as BSG’s Apollo, Bamber’s TV credits include Law & Order: UK, Monday Mornings and Rizzoli & Isles (where he’s currently in the midst of a two-episode arc). He also just this week booked a recurring role on the midseason CW drama The Messengers.
NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c.
