NCIS Alum Sarah Jane Morris Books Murder Gig on Eve of Night Shift Debut

Sarah Jane Morris

Sarah Jane Morris has booked a potentially recurring role on TNT’s Murder in the First, TVLine has learned.

As previously reported, Murder in the First — which stars Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson — for Season 2 has added series regulars A.J. Buckley (CSI: NY) and Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage), as San Francisco PD officer Marty “Junior” McCormack (brother of Robertson’s Hildy) and Gang Task Force member Lara Cruz, respectively.

NCIS and Brothers & Sisters alum Morris will play Junior’s wife, Mary. (Yes, the character’s name is Mary McCormack. No sign of Fred Weller, though.)

Morris’ casting comes on the heels of her wrapping a juicy multi-episode arc on NBC’s The Night Shift, where starting Monday she will play TC’s secret-keeping sister-in-law. Her previous TV credits also include episodes of Hawaii Five-0, Criminal Minds, Body of Proof and Castle.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Nice to see that she’s keeping busy post-NCIS….
    Always thought the actress was a good addition to the show. Even if the writers and showrunner didn’t have a clue how to utilize her
