Since Brothers & Sisters wrapped its run, Morris has recurred as Agent E.J. Barrett on TV’s most watched drama, NCIS, and guested on Castle.

Body of Proof — which this season adds Mark Valley (Human Target) to its cast while subtracting others — launches its third season on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 10/9c (after Private Practice signs off for good). Other guest stars on tap include Annie Wersching (24) in a season-opening arc, Henry Ian Cusick (Lost), Richard Burgi (Desperate Housewives), Tim DeKay (White Collar), Michael Nouri (NCIS), Ivan Sergei (Crossing Jordan) and Ray Wise (Twin Peaks).
