Nia Long Joins NCIS: Los Angeles as a Series Regular in Season 9

Long story short: NCIS: Los Angeles is bolstering its ranks, tapping Nia Long to join the Season 9 cast as a series regular, TVLine has learned.

The TV vet — whose credits include Third Watch, Boston Legal, The Divide and, more recently, Empire — will play Shay Mosely, a former Secret Service agent and the team’s new executive assistant director. Mosely is an experienced Washington insider who brings an east coast style and demeanor to the west coast team.

Exec producer R. Scott Gemmill says “the character was created specifically for Nia to capitalize on her strengths and personality,” adding, “We are excited about the new opportunities and dynamics she brings to the show.”

Long will make her first appearance in NCIS: LA‘s ninth-season premiere on Sunday, Oct. 1 at 9:30/8:30c.

    Poor rest of the cast of ncis la :(

  2. They’re gonna need a bigger squad room…

  3. Sarah D says:

    Great stuff. Can’t wait to see how she will fit in.

  4. Kelly says:

    Does that make her Hetty’s boss? Replacing Granger?

  5. Tina Cameron says:

    I think she’ll be a great addition to the show. I’ve always liked her in any show she’s been in

  6. Hank says:

    Darn, hoping they would use Chegwidden. Oh well, bring on Big Momma’s House

  7. Kira says:

    This makes me so sad. Nia is so much better than a CBS procedural.

  8. Shaun says:

    Was hoping they’d be brave and axe a regular.

  9. Anna says:

    New lady ncis:la she is taking
    Granger spot ?

  10. Michelle says:

    I was hoping that they would bring in AJ Chegwidden on a full time basis to fill the gap left by Granger :-(

  11. LMF says:

    she is a good addition however I don’t know why they need another cast member. Don’t fix whats not broken.. They should have put her in New Orleans as a replacement

  12. N.Kyl says:

    I like her…it should be good

  13. Bobby says:

    The more I think about it, the more it makes sense that they didn’t pick Chegwidden. Can’t see a retired JAG admiral becoming the assistant director of NCIS. But I think they will still use him on a recurring basis. Creates a lot of possibilities for other JAG characters like Clayton Webb to come on the show. But I doubt we’ll see much of James Remar and Carl Lumbly though since they just booked other full-time jobs.

  14. Ange says:

    Is Sam coming back? Something tells me no.

  15. ludivine Vernet says:

    Yuck!

    Hope TPTB realize their mistake and kill her off before season end.
