“I’ve been a big fan of Greg’s going back to Ally McBeal and [the mid-’90s legal drama] Sweet Justice, and he’s a gifted actor with incredible timing and a wonderful sense of humor,” NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg tells TVLine. “Playing the NCIS Deputy Director means carrying a lot of weight on his shoulders. He’s really going to bring the character of Jerome Craig to life.”

Germann — whose other recent guest-starring gigs include Common Law and Drop Dead Diva — will make his first NCIS appearance sometime in January.
