NCIS: LA Season 7: Pamela Reed Lands 'Fun' Role — as Deeks' Mother

Marty Deeks and Leslie Knope share a mom…?

Parks and Rec alum Pamela Reed will guest-star on CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles this fall, in a role that promises to delight (and perhaps intrigue) viewers.

“In the second episode a new character is introduced, and the audience will be delighted,” showrunner Shane Brennan told TVLine on Friday, before the casting of Mrs. Deeks was announced at EW.com. “When this person appears, you’re going to go, ‘Oh my God, this is so much fun!'”

What’s more, it promises to shed some light on the mop-topped lawman. “It’s a very revealing moment for [Deeks],” Brennan added. “Definitely watch Episode 2!”

In addition to her recurring run as Marlene Knope, Reed’s TV credits include The United States of Tara, Jericho, The Home Court, Family Album and, yes, an episode of NCIS sire JAG (as Major General Willsey).

NCIS: LA Season 7 premieres Monday, Sept. 21 at 10/9c.

    FINALLY! i’ve been waiting for years to get some extra background info on deeks, every since he mentioned his father and how terrible he was.

  3. GhostWolf says:

    FINALLY – it’s about time we get some background on Deeks. Was starting to wonder if he had any family left since they weren’t mentioned in the current tense. Hope this means we will be getting more than one eppie on Deeks past this upcoming season.

    Loved her in Kindergarten Cop.

  5. Voyuese says:

    Interesting that she wasn’t mentioned when Deeks was hospitalized and Hetty became his next of kin.

    I love this!

    I’ve been a Pamela Reed fan ever since Grand (which also gave us Joel Murray and Sara Rue among others).

    I cannot imagine better casting for Deeks’ mom.

    Great casting. I love that they use many actors from Jericho (they share(d) a producer). I am finally excited for the new season of NCISLA.

  8. graze says:

    Great casting! I can see Leslie Knope and Deeks being related with Deeks running away from Indiana to get away from his sister, lol.

  9. Fido says:

    Having her be a fun character will be fine, but please don’t let her be all belittling and putdowning of him in a passive aggressive way that many tv moms are of their successful sons+daughters. And yes I know this is only a tv show. :)

    great casting to play Deeks mom!

  11. Sharon says:

    OMG! Can’t wait. I even remember her JAG role. Such a great actress.

    Now that his mom will be visiting, maybe she could ask him – if not to cut and comb his hair – to at least wash it? It’s only my humble opinion but he’s too handsome to have such dirty, uncombed looking hair, undercover or not.

    Looking forward to new cast member. Just please, don’t drop anyone!
