Fall TV Casting: On NCIS: LA, Mom's the Word

Mother’s Day will come early this season on NCIS: Los Angeles, when the women who brought unto the world cast members Chris O’Donnell and Daniela Ruah guest-star on the CBS procedural.

No details have been released on whom exactly O’Donnell’s mom, Julie, and Ruah’s, Catarina (based out of Portugal), will play, though one can rule out Callen and Kensi’s own mothers, since they’ve already been accounted for on the show.

Instead, CBS is only saying the ladies will appear in a scene that was “hand-picked by executive producer Shane Brennan.”

UPDATE: Brennan tells TVLine that the mothers of not two but four cast members — Ruah, O’Donnell, Eric Christian Olsen and LL Cool J — will guest-star in this, playing a group of ladies gambling at a casino.

Season 4 of NCIS: LA premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25.
